Went back the other day with my daughter. Decent fish and chips, but terrific hot dog and onion rings. Fantastic basic items served here. I would suggest that the patron keep it simple, hot dogs, rings, burger- you will be most happy that way.

My dad loves soft shelled crab. So, when it's in season we hunt around for it at seafood places. Denmo's hasn't changed. Still serving fried goodness to the locals. The place is a bit on the expensive side but, what place isn't nowadays. We fed...More

All outdoor venue and seating. Local quick eats place with a variety of food from standard burger dogs and fries (which are awesome) to clam boats and lobster roll. Great ice cream too. It is not cheap, but certainly worth the price.

This is yet another Southbury gem. From hotdogs and hamburgers to seafood the food is well cooked and delicious. This is an old fashioned "stand" but with a great selection and nice tables to sit at outdoors.

Love this place! Best cheeseburger and fries! You also need to try the fried clams and lobster roll. Took a friend in the middle of winter and sat outside. We enjoyed every bite. Can't wait to go back.

Denmo's sits on a fairly busy road, and you eat your meal at outdoor picnic tables (there's no indoor seating). The menu is pretty much what you'd expect from a basic New England roadside eatery (hot dogs, hamburgers, fried seafood, lobster rolls, ice cream) and...More

While visiting relatives in CT, we expressed a desire for New England style fried clams. Along with fried shrimp, clams, and a fish sandwich, I ordered and ate the best lobster roll ever. I ordered it warm in a bun and it was "to die...More

Went there last weekend and apart from being treated as an interruption to a conversation our order wasn't followed. The attitude was "This is what you get. Stop complaining. If you want to be treated well go to a sit-down restaurant. " Still, the chili...More
