Westbrook Lobster House

346 E. Main St., Clinton, CT - (860) 664-9464

Billing its fare as "fine casual dining for the whole family," Westbrook Lobster is a year-around source for excellent Yankee seafood -- ready to take home and cook or ready to sit down and eat. In the summer, you can come for top-notch fried clams (strips or whole bellies) and masterfully-made lobster rolls (hot or cold); and in cold weather months, the big draws are chowder (Rhode Island brothy or New England creamy), and big dinners of baked and grilled seafood from scrod and sole to Salmon a la Westbrook topped with spinach cream sauce.

As the restaurant's name suggests, lobsters are the specialty of the house; and in addition to the fine lobster rolls, you can get yours steamed, baked-stuffed, picked out of the shell in a buttery casserole known as lazyman's lobster, as lobster Savannah (in a creamy mushroom sauce), and as lobster Newburg. Whole live lobsters are available to go; and Westbrook Lobster is set up to next-day-air ship them anywhere in the U.S.

Interesting oddities on the menu include lobster Caesar salad, Westbrook Seafood Pie baked with Ritz cracker crumbs and cheese, and clam chili – an inspired casserole soup of beans, vegetables and clams in spicy broth.
