The hot lobster roll platter (w/ slaw and fries) at Bill's is 20 bucks.
Had the worst lobster roll of my life there last weekend and frankly I think all the food there is horrifically overrated because of a nice view.

We tried to get a Ford's lobster roll on Saturday but they took the phone off the hook. They must have been buried! Ended up at Bill's and they were perfect. Rolls and fries even stood up in the travel containers in the 15 minutes we drove to find some place to park.

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.

I know Im going to regret this because all you custies are going to screw up my order times....
Had my first lobster roll of the season last week at Jessica's Garden. I feel comfortable saying this because I know you don't dare step East North of the River. ;)

OT, I just picked up some soft shell crabs at Paganos (Norwalk) and grilled them for lunch. Tremendous. Big and sweet. The fish monger said they are coming in that way from Maryland, and expects them to last for another month or so.

Yes. I posted about both the shirt and the roll upthread. I own the shirt and their lobster roll was A+.

You mean no Liv's Shack in Westbrook this summer?
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.

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.

For those in the greater-Hartford area, Deepwater Seafood in Avon has a fantastic lobster roll for $18.95.

The kids and I had a hot roll with butter, wife had cold with mayo. The roll is sort of a butterflied and grilled piece of french bread. Delicious See pic on the website for a better description.


I had a stuffed clam and we also got the lobster mac and cheese to share and everything was dynamite.
