Foursquare Tips

  • Get there early and have a drink on the porch while you wait for your table.
  • Fried Chicken sandwich may not jump out at you, but its AMAZING!
  • Fantastic. Everything we had was amazing.
  • Oysters and rose
  • The oysters are great. The crudo and grilled octopus are solid as well. The best dish if you want to splurge is "Normans Lobster Butter".
  • Lobster butter.
  • Roasted oysters and seasonal salads are TO DIE for. Also, any type of oysters are great as they come from Copps Island Oysters.
  • The deviled eggs are incredible. I know it's a seafood place, but you have to try the burgers.
  • This place has great food and drink !
  • Everything is delicious. A little expensive, but definitely a fantastic option
  • Truly excellent, carefully thought out and attractively executed dishes here. Attractive crowd, mix of young professionals and older commuters. Killer cocktails and good wine list, too.
  • Everything is good here. Try the drink with bacon bourbon and egg whites, it's like a breakfast sandwich drink, and it's delicious
  • Best burger in Westport.
  • Get the trout dip
  • Skip the crab fondue for something else fun on the menu. Deviled eggs with fried oysters are delicious!
  • Place your name with the bartender for bar seating. Menu selection changes so worth multiple visits. The oysters and scallop crudo are never a disappointment. Cons: paper placemats. Stemless glasses.
  • TT: The Whelk is the newest restaurant from chef Bill Taibe of the renowned Le Farm. Stop in for whole griddled head-on shrimp and warm Peekytoe crab fondue
  • Surpassed my high expectations. Great food.
  • Loud... 60 out if 100 seats force people to the inhospitable discomfort of THE most uncomfortable stools EVER created... that said, the food is amazing.
  • Get the fried oysters!
