Abbott’s Lobster in the Rough, Noank, Conn.
Voted Best Place to Eat a Lobster in New England by About.com, Abbott’s lobsters come with a bag of chips and cole slaw. Don’t be afraid to eat outside on the picnic tables – the wires stretched overhead are there to keep seagulls from swooping down and stealing your food. Try their “Noank style” clam chowder. Open Memorial Day through Labor Day.
