Original Nachos

I haven't been in Connecticut for years I live in PA now but I am gonna be going camping out there and remember loving your restaurant so much. I plan on taking my fiance there on our way back home. Can't wait for some nachos and the best quesadilla ever

Mango Salmon Tacos

I've been to Cuckoo's Nest many times; it's one of my very favorite Old Saybrook area restaurants. Most recently I was there for lunch with three friends, and I tried something I've never had before... the Mango Salmon Tacos. They were absolutely DELICIOUS! A big three thumbs up for those! And I just have to add that although I did not have it during this visit, their Rockefeller Soup, which is a special menu item that is not always available, is hands down the best soup I have ever had at any restaurant. If they have it during your next visit, be sure you try it! You will not be disappointed!

Cucumber Mint Margarita

Cuckoos Nest food is DELICIOUS!! Not only is the food tasty and authentic, the vibe is spot on. The margaritas are to die for and are very strong. Always enjoy my time here with my husband on date nights and recommend this place to everyone.
