We welcome you to join us in our Historic Dining Rooms, Tap Room and Wine Bar! You may also enjoy GRIS-TO-GO, offered daily from 11:30am to 8:00pm.

One of the oldest continuously operated inns in the country, we opened our doors for business in 1776. Although the Inn exudes the charm of days gone by, we are anything but dated. From our sophisticated cuisine, extensive wine offerings, comfortable accommodations, and modern amenities, The Griswold Inn, located in the historic seaport village of Essex, Connecticut, offers the best of times.
