My wife and I fell upon this place by accident while searching for restaurants in the Groton, CT area. It is way off the beaten path. It's a fascinating drive through history as you wind through a neighborhood that was built in the mid-1800's. What...More

We shared the New England Lobster Feast. Plenty of food. The only complaint is that the clams were gritty with sand.

On a trip to the eastern part of the state stopped by for lunch with friends and family. Excellent and fresh lobster. Roll was full of meat. It is "in the rough". Don't expect anything fancy. Just about the fresh seafood.

Some people will sniff "tourist lobster", and yeah it's a little of that, but Abbott's has been bringing in tourists and locals for years. More laid back atmosphere than Ford's down the street (also good), this is the classic New England waterfront lobster place. Service...More

My first time at Abbott's was in Fall 1986. I was a college student and my girlfriend and some of her friends took me there. It was life changing! At Abbott's the lobster roll is simple. It's large chunks of lobster on a toasted bun...More

I would guess the reference was Mystic - Noank is a lovely spread-out village...partly on the hillside leading to the water...a bit "fun" to navigate. Marinas and Abbotts's and the Clam Shack are about it. Plenty of shops in... More
