On a clear day you can just about see the rocky shores of western Ireland from a good seat at The Wharf restaurant at Connecticut’s Madison Beach Hotel. Well, not really–actually, you’re looking south–but the view of Long Island Sound is vast and breathtaking.

A chef here could depend on the vista alone to captivate diners’ senses, but Brendan Treyball relies on talent as well, creating thoughtful renditions of shore-food favorites–spicy shrimp scampi, for example–plus a super-fresh raw-bar selection and a simple-yet-satisfying lobster roll.

The original hotel was constructed in the early 1800s as a rooming house for local boatbuilders during the Age of Sail, and then, a century later, its replacement became a seasonal destination for tourists. This venerable hostelry is open this year until September 27.

If you visit, be sure to stop by The Wharf, where you’ll discover just how beautifully a stunning ocean view can enhance a great meal.

    My husband and I spent two days here on a romantic getaway and we loved the Madison Beach Hotel and Wharf Restaurant! The rooms were cozy and quaint, very reminiscent of an historical beach hotel with a wrought iron bed and simple antique furnishings. Our room included a private deck overlooking the beach and Long Island Sound. The food at the restaurant was delicious. We enjoyed both lunch and dinner at the restaurant but the continental breakfast was just the “usual” so we had breakfast at a local diner. The surrounding area of Madison is filled with beautiful homes overlooking the water and we found it enjoyable to walk in the neighborhood and take in the seaside architecture and gardens. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious, satisfying meal. I would recommend the hotel to anyone who comes for the view and destination rather than a luxury room.
