If Lobster is what you want and trendy atmosphere is not important then Abbott's Lobster in the Rough is the place to go near Mystic, CT. I don't know how they do it but they cook a ton of these sea creatures and they are done perfectly. Also the accompanyments are well prepared as well. If you want style and... More

Lobster roll and bisque were very good. You can eat inside or outside near the boats on the river. An extensive seafood menu to select from with lobster served many different ways. There is a desert stand if you have room after your meal (doubtful).

What a great, quaint little find. We showed up about 5 minutes before it opened and there was already a line, showing how popular the place is. My husband had the small Lobster Roll and the Shrimp in the Rough. He said that next time, he would skip the shrimp and get the OMG Lobster Roll. He said that it... More

Had an evening free on a business trip and based on trip advisor made the trek to Abbott's in Noank (thanks to GPS for finding the place). I went all out with a seafood feast consisting of their R.I. clam chowder which is a clear broth with clam (could have used a bit more seasoning). Then a bag of steamed... More

No frills spot with great lobster, lobster rolls on paper plates and picnic tables! View of the water and sides (corn on the cob) excellent as well.

If you can navigate to it, have at least $30 per person and LOVE Connecticut style Lobster Rolls I really strongly suggest going here. CT style is hot with melted butter. Just awesome

I absolutely love this eatery. Perfect seafood, perfect views. I have been to Abbott's many, many times, but this time I introduced my three nieces (aged 5, 6 and 12) to the food and views and it was a hit. They loved sitting on the pier enjoying their food, creamy New England clam chowder, mac and cheese, lobster roll, all... More

Yum and Yummy! Every time I come back to Connecticut (and back home), I have to get my lobster fix. Abbott's is the easiest and best place to get it! Paper plate, big 2 lb. lobster, butter and a great glass of white wine (BYOB, BTW -- Bring your own bottle, by the way)! The incredible view of Fishers Island... More

Went with friends while visiting Niantic CT and the food was fabulous. Lobster bisque ,crab cakes,shrimp and lobster roll were all divine. We shared and left full and satisfied with some great seafood. Recommend highly if you are in the area.

Abbott's is great, real fresh seafood. There is a big menu out front, then you get on line, place your order, and they hand you a receipt with your order number on it. Then, you go through a side door and get your drinks and appetizers. The staff is always really friendly and fast as usual. Great outdoor seating, perfect... More
