What better way to conclude a beach day than a trip to a nautical themed restaurant for dinner and drinks? I can’t think of one. Luckily, one of Milford’s newest restaurants on the scene, Nautilus, fills that void with ease. The restaurant began serving its complete menu a few weeks back, and plans to have their grand opening on Wednesday, April 26, 2023.
Nautilus is located in the Walnut Beach area of Milford, and is just a few feet away from the beach itself. It is a new restaurant in the Milford community, and its menu is filled with variety and deliciousness.
The menu has something for everyone. They have a ton of great appetizers, including fried pickles, chicken tenders, pretzels, and of course, fried shrimp. They have a great selection of wraps, salads, burgers, and more. What I like about Nautilus’ menu is that you can customize your food to be whatever you want it to be. For example, if you order a sandwich, you can choose between different kinds of bread (ciabatta, brioche, wrap, pretzel, or gluten free bun or wrap), as well as the sides (natural cut fries, onion rings, or sweet potato). They also offer entrees, such as steak, fish and chips, and Mac and cheese. Yum. And, of course, they have an amazing bar, ready to take your summer drink order.
One thing that I really wanted to highlight was their pizza. I was blown away by their New Haven style pizza. One bite into the pizza transported me back to Wooster Street in New Haven — a hard thing for pizza to accomplish since I grew up so close to Pepe’s and Sally’s. The sauce tasted so fresh and delicious, and the crust was well-done but not burnt. Their pizza menu is expansive as the rest of the menu. They offer New Haven style (tomato with parmigiana cheese), classic cheese, and even mashed potato. And, like the sandwiches, you can add toppings of your choosing. If you’re undecided on what to try when you visit, definitely go for the pizza.
Between it’s nautical decor and delicious menu, this little place has officially become my go-to after a day at the beach, and I am completely blown away with the quality of food and service this little restaurant offers. Welcome to the little city with a big heart, Nautilus.
