Hadn't been here in years and won't be going back again soon. Went for lunch recently with grandson and opted for two of their award winning hot lobster rolls along with creamy New England clam chowder. corn chowder with shrimp (with a touch of red pepper), and an order of steamers. The only thing hot was the red pepper which... More

If you love lobster and seafood then this place is for you. It's served in the rough where you can eat in or outside. Both offer very nice views of the water. I had the 1 pound, that's right one pound warm lobster roll. One full pound of lobster meat on a warmed buttered roll. Although you have to eat... More

A few weeks ago, we made our first visit of the season to Abbotts in the Rough in Noank, CT. Finding Abbotts down a narrow, bumpy road is just the first part of the adventure. Finding parking in the always crowded lot is the second. But the best part is finally ordering, receiving and eating your lobster. The freshness and... More

I love coming to Abbott's for seafood. I always stop when I am in the area for their delicious crab cakes. They serve them with a special sauce which is unlike anything I've ever tasted. YUM! I love to sit on the dock and watch the boats ride by. The reason I didn't give them 5 stars was because I... More

Have been coming to this place whenever I'm in the area for twenty-one years and it never disappoints. I always get the lobster roll, and though the price has risen steadily over the years, it never disappoints. The sandwich is always heaped with tasty, tender meat. I also like their chowder. Half the fun is getting there. From charming Mystic... More

I have heard a lot about Abbott's and have been begging my husband to go. We finally got there! The lobster salad roll was delicious. The OMG lobster roll had plenty of meat, but I really prefer the lobster salad roll. The steamers were good, but the bigger they were, the tougher they were. Beautiful view!

A visit to CT isn't complete until I've had lobster at Abbott's Lobster in the Rough. This place may be a little hard to find, but it's well worth the trip. The lobsters are very fresh and steamed to perfection. Love to sit outside and watch the boats go by in the harbor. Very informal, good food at decent prices.

Fantastic seafood and views. Loved the lobster, steamers and clams. We were there for a wedding reception and the service was excellent.

This place is right on the water with a marina and channel directly in front of you when you eat. So, the ambience is the location, certainly not the picnic ground you are actually within. Abbott's serves tons of lobster, literally, and it is fresh and delicious. Their lobster bisque is rich and tasty. The hot lobster rolls are darn... More
