We've been shopping at Old Lyme Seafood for years and have always been pleased with their swordfish, salmon, and shrimp. They generally have a good selection of very fresh fish and all at a reasonable price.

We live locally and want to support local owned businesses but we have had consistently bad fish from this place. Not fresh at best, spoiled and foul tasting and smelling at worst. Inedible. Finally just quit going. Unfortunate.

My partner Bob and travel to New England to visit his relatives. It is our annual tradition to bring home (to Pennsylvania) fresh lobsters to share with my daughter. This year we went to Old Lyme Seafood to procure three critters to make the trip from CT to PA. The salespeople at Old Lyme made sure that we had enough... More

I have lived in Old Lyme for years. The fish and seafood at Old Lyme Seafood is far superior then any where I have been. Everything is so fresh and their presentation in the cases is great. Once or twice a week we get their shrimp that is already cooked and chilled. We use it for shrimp cocktails at home.... More

Good fresh fish...shrimps are delicious and crab cakes are amazing. Good soups in the refrigerator. Owners smoked fish out back...(salmon, trout, scallops and others)!

We first met the owner at the shop when picking up Seafood Festival tickets-then went back to get fresh fish and ended up buying plump and clean smelling cod and haddock, and a big meaty king crab leg-it had so much meat in it, we were able to treat it as an appetizer! But everything tastes like it just came... More

They always have some local fish that are hard to find, such as tautog,shad etc. The prepared stuff, chowders,sauces are excellent. Plus I have to have a crab stuffed deviled egg everytime I go in. Check out great bake shop next door too!

Owner and employees are very friendly and helpful. Fish is always fresh and good variety. Clean and well kept but simple. We buy fish here quite often but have not tried the meals prepared on premise. Good choices for farm raised, organic and wild caught fish. Prices are fair and a good value.

Lobster bisque, clam chowder are fantabulous. If I died today, I could say that I have had the best lobster bisque ever.
