I really enjoyed the Buffalo wings at Archie Moore,'s. Definitely the best wings I have ever had. Fresh chicken, great sauce and fresh Blue Cheese dressing. The Rancher Chicken wrap was even better. The wrap was do fresh and tasty it made me wonder if Archie Moire ever makes a lobster roll. Must eat here. Exit ,6 of I 91... More

They have really good wings. The service is fast. The clam chowder comes in mugs (if you ask for a cup ;) ). Deep fried calamari are nice, though a bit on the greasy side. Lots of TVs, but not exactly a sports bar. The bar area is comfortable, the restaurant, well is more like and extended bar area/pub. No... More

I have been going to Archie MOORES for years and need to say this time was the best experience. Bartender was attentive and the wings were to die for. The wings always are cooked to perfection and I absolutely love the pulled pork nachos. The service is always on point and friendly. I'll keep coming back and recommending their wings... More

Archie Moore's is a great, local hangout, good crowd. They serve burgers and sandwiches, drinks, alchohol but the WINGS ARE AMAZING. It is definitely worth a stop if you like good wings!

an unassuming joint with a great attitude. Every server says hello to you even if you aren't at their table. You're practically family. Our kids loved it! Service is timed well, not too fast, but not slow either. All the food is classic pub fair... and done very well. Wings done several ways. The nachos were really good! Served hot... More

Archie Moore’s 188 Willow St. New Haven, Ct Archie’s is one of the best old style taverns and restaurant in the city. Before being discovered the Original Archie’s was a typical blue collar neighborhood bar. Since up- styling the décor and menu years ago it has become a great place for lunch, dinner and a few drinks. It’s usually crowded,... More

This was a great stop. The food was great, the atmosphere was very friendly and our waitress was awesome. (I think her name was Laurie) We had the fish and chips, Ruben, and Philly steak wrap. All were great. Again very friendly. Great time!

There are so many places that you could go and get a drink and food that I see no reason to go to a chain that really doesn't offer you anything special. The food here is completely average. The service is pretty good. The drinks are also just average. There's nothing really to talk about here. Honestly, if you are... More

Need a good drink and some buffalo wings, this is the place. Great burgers and even poutine. Fries coves in gravy with real cheese curd. Just like Canada. Fish and chips crispy and perfectly golden. Ceasar salad really beautiful and really far superior than what you would expect in a bar type restaurant. Go have a good time the staff... More
