Yes. I posted about both the shirt and the roll upthread. I own the shirt and their lobster roll was A+.Anybody had the lobster roll at Liv's Shack? Wife and I tried to just take a look but it is in a gated marina so we weren't sure how to drive in, gate was closed. We had takeout from Bill's and went to Hammonasset to enjoy it. I was actually hoping to buy this shirt from Liv's, no idea if they sell them.View attachment 54518
Turning Westbrook into a full service restaurant, not sure if it will be open this summer. Coronavirus has hampered construction I guess. I'll make another attempt to go there (Old Saybrook) this summer. I had not paid any attention to what town it was in and saw the name Liv's Shack and tried to see it, I was actually at the Westbrook one which is also in a marina. Explains why I couldn't get in, it wasn't open.It’s what I hear. They are running Saybrook only. I could be wrong. But I heard that from my parents who are pilots point members.

We went here for dinner last night. Still BYOB, at least for the time being; no fried calamari currently, either.Went to Liv’s Shack Westbrook location tonight, where Boom used to be. Great location; had a couple really nice meals at Boom so we were bummed to hear that it closed, but psyched when Liv’s moved in. Apparently next summer they will have a full service bar and be similar to Bill’s Seafood. I will definitely try to get there at least one more time while they are BYOB because everything was excellent and we love the value in bringing our own booze.
The 4 oz. lobster rolls were loaded with large pieces of impeccable claw meat. Much different than Lobster Landing, which has mostly knuckle meat. Claw meat can be tricky because the lobster has to be really fresh or else it gets rubbery; this was perfect. I would rate it at a tie for third with Johnny Ad’s; Lobster Landing and Ford’s are still tied at 1 and 1A for me.
Fried calamari, New England clam chowder and fries were all also very good.
Bonus points for t-shirt that says (in words and images) “No Mayo; Lobster + butter; How Connecticut Rolls”
Of course I bought one.
How was the seating? You up on the rails or table. Tuesday afternoon, nice.Had an appointment in New London today that conveniently ended around 12:30, which meant that it made perfect sense for me to drive another ten miles up the road and grab a lobster roll and Noank chowder from Ford's.
Another A+ roll. Pretty much a perfect distribution of buttery (but not too buttery), tender claw, tail and knuckle meat. I still rate it as a dead heat with Lobster Landing, and just a touch ahead of Liv's.
Excellent clear broth chowder, too--especially for one that doesn't use bacon.

They are seating outside on the docks, not in the restaurant. I was solo yesterday so they sat me by myself on a great perch that was essentially a countertop overlooking the docks and the water. Perfect. There were a few tables with a couple people at them, but I would have rather been exactly where I was. It can be a little breezy so you need to weigh down your napkins and the empty oyster cracker bag to prevent them from blowing away; and you have to read the menu online on your own phone.last I knew they were only doing takeout still but that was a couple weeks ago when I went
