We had a great time, last weekend, having dinner and drinks, with friends at The Black Sheep. They have a very good variety of craft beers and their salads were delicious. I especially enjoyed the feel of the place.....informal, great design with plenty of seating space. I would not hesitate to come back the next time we are in Niantic!

We went here thinking it was going to be your standard Irish pub fare and were surprised at the upscale food choices on the menu. It was packed and service was still pretty good despite it being very busy. It was Restaurant Week so we tried the menu for that - a delicious wedge salad, chicken marsala and the BEST... More

The Black Sheep Pub, according to local buzz, is so-named because the founder was the black sheep of his family -- the son who left the family pub in Ireland to open his own pub in the U.S. True to its Irish roots, the BSP weaves itself into the heart of the Niantic community. For example, not only does the... More

We went with our entire family which included 3 children under 7. The food selections, as well as the beer and wine were most enjoyable. Casual dining at a great local place.

Hubby and I went into town for an early dinner so we could attend the light parade. Arrived before 4:30 and the place was already packed. Hostess quickly found us a booth tucked in a corner by the bar. Perfect. Ordered our drinks, appetizer and dinner. Even though it was crazy busy, our server was attentive and everything came out...
