You must go here if you are anywhere near Clinton, CT. The lobster rolls are excellent and the atmosphere is classic New England coast. The only other things on the menu are hot dogs and sausage roll w/peppers and onions which we did not order. You can buy very fresh lobster meat, clams, mussels, etc. by the pound.

What's better then a soft roll filled with succulent, buttery lobster...not much!! Bring your own wine, sit on the shell covered patio and watch the ships pass by. Bliss.

As if the ambiance was cool enough, their hot lobster roll is hands down the best on the East Coast. This is my fifth time going back to Lobster Landing and I can't say enough good things about it. A hot lobster roll will cost you $16, but pair the food with the fishing village environment, and you'll see it... More

Unadulterated and simple lobster the way it was meant to be. Rustic but efficient this establishment is a Clinton institution and a well deserved one. Servers are friendly and fast and the roll buns are fresh and toasted. Recommended.

Great place. Rustic, right on the water, outside only. Best lobster roll you have ever had. I ordered with no butter and it was delicious, generous portions. The best.

Limited menu, but all is great. Lobster rolls, hotdogs, sausage peppers and onions. Bagged chips, water and soft drinks. Gelato too. Outdoor seating. Credit cards accepted. Right on the water!

The Ritz? No. Le Cirque? No. However, if you want a great lobster roll with a great view of the water, this is the place for you. Not fancy, just fun and inviting. Bring your own booze because he doesn't serve it. Lots of lobster on a buttered roll. Can't ask for more.

I love lobster! I love lobster rolls even more...less work! Everytime I read a best of list for the CT shoreline, Lobster Landing is always on the top of every lobster list, so I have been hankering to try this little hole in the wall. This is a no frills waterside little place in Clinton, about a 2 min drive... More

We got to the Hammonasset State Park where we are staying for a week. Asked the staff where a good place for seafood was. He said if you want something touristy go to _____but if you want good food go to the Lobster Landing! He said it was a couple of shacks but the food was outstanding. Gave us directions... More
