Lobster Shack – Branford, Connecticut

Lobster Roll at Lobster Shack Branford, Connecticut

Fun little stan‏d set up by the dock with picnic tables.  Difficult to find and has apparently moved locations since I visited.  Very limited menu, just hot lobster roll, steamed littleneck clams and hot dog.  Usually means that they do these things right.  Must say, quite a delish roll.  The roll itself was larger and seemed heartier than hot dog roll, not split roll, grilled.  It really soaked up the butter without geting soggy.  Tender meat, tail and claw, large serving.  Flavor was a bit salty, which is a plus in my book and tasted like it was cooked with lemon, a great touch.  Yum!

  1. You should return to new location acros from Stony Creek Brewery on the Branford River. Menus extended . Arlene, the owner, has been in business on the Branford River for 7 years.

    I grew up in New Haven and we used to go out to Savin Rock to a place that was well known for its lobster rolls. Phylise ? sp Tons of lobster and butter put in a hot dog bun and placed on a hot stove top until crispy toasted.. THE BEST. None of your places do that…..makes all the difference…..I make my own ’cause I can’t buy them prepared that way………too sad, too bad……
