I look forward, at least once a year, when I am working in the Mystic area to go to Abbott's. It open on the weekend the actual week that I am in that area. The scenery is great and the food even better. A MUST DO !!!!!

So if you like lobster then this is the place for you! I can honestly say this is my favorite lobster place in the entire US! It's nothing fancy, you go to the window, place your order and find a picnic bench seaside and wait for your order number to be called before walking back and getting your plate. But... More

Great place for steamed lobster. Outside picnic tables. Warm weather place to go. Great view. No frill, just good food.

This wonderful seaside restaurant delivers in so many ways. From the view, the laid back atmosphere, and the most delicious FRESH lobster, it is the kind of place you will be talking about for years. If I ever make it back up to CT, there is no question we will be going back! A little side note-it is BYO alcohol.... More

We picked a great day to visit. A nice sunny day to be on the water and enjoy this simple, rustic place. We went in early October and did not have to deal with the crowds. However, the Lobster roll was so good I would go back and wait in the the crowds. The clam chowder was terrific as well.

This is a lobster shack. You stand in line to order at a window, then wait for your number to be called. But what you get is great, fresh lobster! Either as a dinner or on a roll. Both are great. Be sure to try the clam chowder and the stuffed clams as starters. They're terrific. It's worth the drive... More

On the way to NYC we stopped at Abbots on one of their last days this season. I had the OMG lobster roll and my wife had the smaller version. Both were served warm with butter on the side. I think the OMG was the better deal but you can't go wrong with either one. We've been here before and... More

Once you've found Abbott's the hardest part is over. Now sit back and enjoy the seafood feast. I found that it was worth it to upgrade to a larger lobster In my lobster feast. Fresh delicious seafood, simple chowder, corn on the cob, chips and cole slaw. Inside or outside seating is plentiful and stop by to take a look... More

I was at this restaurant once when I was about 13 years old and it was an unknown diamond in the rough. I believe at that time there were four picnic tables...that's it. While the feel of the place has not changed (that's a good thing) the seating options have grown to include covered and open air seating, on the... More
