We finally found a home.

Lately, we have been searching for the perfect place for a great Clam Strip Plate. Known, for some odd reason as a Blue Plate. All along the Eastern New England and Canadian Maritime Provinces. We found many so far but wanted one to call “home” as in within an hour from our house. Well, we... read more

This little drive up is great! The lobster roll was amazing! You can get it hot with butter or chilled with mayo. I went with hot and wasn't disappointed. Loaded with fresh lobster. I definitely will be back.

I used to live in walking distance of Stowe's and not being from CT we decided to check it out one day and were so thrilled to learn we found the place with the best clam chowder. I was also a fan of the fried shrimp and my husband loves the lobster rolls but I really only went there for... More

Coming from Boston I would not ordinarily order lobster in CT but it was recommended and I felt adventurous after a very nice walk along the beach in West Haven. Was not disappointed!!! Newcomers should know everything is made to order (not fast food!) So you will wait a bit but it very much worth it!

We were looking for a good, local, seafood place when we found Stowe's. And what a find! This place is no frills, has a great location on the beach, and serves up delicious fresh seafood. We had cod, shrimp, sole, scallops, fries, and onion rings...oh, so good! My entire family loved it and asked for more!

I HAD to try the lobster roll because that was the recommendation I got from some of the locals. After finally getting in (it is ALWAYS busy and the parking lot a challenge!), it was worth the effort at getting in and trying the lobster roll. Zero disappointment, in fact, it was wonderful. Also, the folks running this place are... More

We love Stowe's Seafood. It is absolutely the best seafood in CT. We make it our business to visit during the weekend from Bpt. and we are always satisfied with the delicious food. Its worth the weekend summer lines :)

I live in Connecticut, and frankly, have been disappointed by some of the small seafood restaurants on the shore. But, Stowes is fantastic. We passed thru the area twice this weekend, and had lunch there both times. The first time we both had the hot lobster roll (they come hot and cold) was without question the best I've ever eaten....
