We went on a Sunday morning for breakfast and were not disappointed. Lots of choices on the menu and the pancakes are HUGE - just 1 fills the entire plate! A word of advice, though: Go early or you'll have to wait to be seated.

Not only the best tasting but the biggest and best selection. And that's not all--a large bar and an excellent dinner/after movie menu with the besst burgers around. Finish the meal off with a short walk to the seawall on Long Island Sound.

Just like Westbrook Christie's this place is amazing. Bring a big appetite as the food is excellent and plentiful. Outstanding pancakes, breakfast meats and egg selections. A "must experience" location.

We love going to Cristy's in Madison with the family. There are tasty burgers, wraps (Thanksgiving wrap is our favorite) and a nice variety of salads, sandwiches and breakfast foods. They also have entrees if you are so inclined. Their pancake menu is impressive and I've enjoyed their omelets.

We were twelve for Sunday brunch. Let's get the good stuff out of the way first. The breakfast meals were all very good. Portions are generous and prices are reasonable. Our waitress was super efficient and really worked hard to keep everyone happy. Since it was a Sunday we expected to have a wait. We were fortunate to have a... More

I had never eaten at Cristy's but always heard wonderful things, so when I had the chance to have breakfast there I jumped at the chance....WOW I wasn't disappointed that's for sure.

Spur of the moment visit after a movie Christmas week. We had not visited here since it was the Dolly Madison and it is still that nice, comfy atmosphere and home-style (in a good way) food. Given it's proximity to the beach and the upscale nature of the town, I thought the "new" owners might look to go "up market"... More

We had a very nice lunch. Burgers and wraps, salads and soups. All were large portions and served hot. Everything was very good. No complaints regarding the food and service. Our waitress was attentive but not intrusive. We had enough time to eat and have an adult conversation without loud noises or piped in music. Prices are very reasonable. Any... More

Went here on the suggestion of a friend .. glad I did. It was a Saturday morning and the line for seating was out the door .. but it moved fairly fast. The place was jumpin inside. Once we were seated we had to wait for our coffee and when it finally came they left a carafe on the table.... More
