Our Story

Survived Two Hurricanes and are Better Than Ever...

Built in 1836 and fashioned from native granite, our little stone building first served as a Guilford shoreman’s place of work until well into the 20th century. After standing proud against the fickle waters and errant winds of the Long Island Sound for over a century it soon became home to a series of eating places.

Now as the tides continue to rise and fall against our docks, gently lapping at 200 year old mortar, sits the Guilford Mooring restaurant Our eating place results from the collective efforts of an eclectic group of enterprising individuals who share a common goal: To create a restaurant that successfully marries a poetic and genuine New England ambiance with outstanding, indigenous and unique flavors of Nor’ Eastern seafood cooking and have chosen to offer our menu in a bright, festive atmosphere.

We offer a variety of signature items such as Steamers, New England Crab Cakes, Guilford Fish and Chips, Chicken Milanese, and the finest New England Clam Chowder you will ever taste. We start the dinner hour off with a bang every late afternoon by offering different happy hour specials Monday through Friday 4 – 7. We also have a scenic patio room that is ideal for events for up to 60 people. General Manager Ralph D’Amato along with Executive Chef Anthony Pellegrini serve as our banquet and meeting co-ordinator, and will meet with you to plan your event. You choose from our menu or, with the help of our Chef, create your own.

  • My wife and I enjoy the scenic ride down and relaxing by sitting on the patio and enjoying the warm breeze and delicous food each Summer.

  • We always look forward to stopping in for some live entertainment on the patio and sharing some appetizers like the clams casino and stuffed mushrooms.

  • We love the view, we love the food and we love the staff. Those three things keep us coming back year after year. This place is a true gem. I commend them on all the work they have done after the two hurricanes. Its simply remarkeable they have the place looking better than ever.
