Went for dinner with my husband and we had a wonderful meal. We both had the OMG lobster roll, which was fantastic. I had the clear chowder which wasn't really clear (like the RI version), but was still very good. My husband had clams on...More

My husband and I went to Abbots Lobster in the Rough last Sunday after visiting the Mystic Art Show. We hadn't been there in a few years. It's located in the tiny town of Noank, part of Groton/Mystic right on the Mystic River..opening up to...More

Huge disappointment for our first stop on our New England tour. The New England Clam Chowder was separated and not very tasty. Got our "worst on trip" vote. The lobster roll was bland and the crab rolls were kind of gross looking. This place is...More

I made a special trip here because others raved about it. I was not impressed. I ordered a hot lobster roll and it was lukewarm at best. Compared to other places I went, they were overpriced. My opinion is they have become to commercialized. They...More

If you are looking for fancy table linens, "proper" silverware, and top-notch service, look elsewhere. If what you are looking for is a great Lobster Roll that you can eat at a picnic table in a quintessential southern New England seaside setting - you have...More

It's an interesting place which has much in common with similar waterside restaurants along the CT coast. We each had the OMG lobster roll, containing a lot more meat than the regular roll. It was one of the best I've ever had. The lobster meat...More

Stayed in Mystic two nights, visited Abbott's twice. No frills BYOB lobster shack. Beautifully cooked meaty lobsters. There was a slight problem with our order on the second night, very quickly rectified by the exceedingly pleasant staff who remembered us from the previous night. Beautiful...More

Incredibly, Mystic does not have a lobster-pound restaurant. And that's exactly what we wanted and found at Abbott's. The BEST Lobster bisque we've had in a long, long time. Very well-run, organized, beautiful setting, simple even has a sink with soap and paper outside so...More

I knew we would be on a dock and eating off paper plates with cheap plastic flatware. I didn't know the food would be bad. Most disappointed in the oysters on the half shell. They were small, looked dirty and high priced for a terrible...More

I would guess the reference was Mystic - Noank is a lovely spread-out village...partly on the hillside leading to the water...a bit "fun" to navigate. Marinas and Abbotts's and the Clam Shack are about it. Plenty of shops in... More
