Tuna Chimichurri

My meal was phenomenal. I can't say enough good things about Stephanie who gave us the best service. She was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is fun and upbeat. And the frozen margaritas are mouthwatering.

Acapulco Taco Salad

Cuckoo's Nest is an establishment of the Old Saybrook community. Full stop, it wouldn't be the same town if it didn't have the Cuckoo's Nest in it. They are kind, fun, and have *delicious* food. When they're busy they still make you feel like they're open for you, and if they're quiet you don't lose any of the pomp or circumstance like some restaurants tend to overlook when the floor is quiet. There's really nothing to particularly recommend on the menu because the entire menu is phenomenal, and if you have the opportunity to dine in when they have the mariachi, the experience itself is something to additionally write about!

Shrimp & Scallops, Asparagus

Shrimp/Scallop Fajitas were amazing and bountiful. The dish arrived with large sized scallops and shrimp with al dente asparagus that was all sauteed to perfection. We also started with the nachos appetizer which was very tasty with plenty of cheese and the salsa is terrific. Another dish was the southwestern salad with grilled chicken. We were so pleased with the amount of grilled chicken and the fresh lettuce with black beans, corn, etc. The homemade creamy garlic dressing made the salad a definite for a return visit as next time with try with shrimp. Dessert was an apple crisp with ice cream that topped off a delicious dinner for each of us at very reasonable prices.
