One of the many benefits of going to school at Connecticut College? The amazing seafood! Living right near the ocean might make it a little windier than average, but the delicious fish makes up for it. You do not even have to go to a fancy or expensive restaurant to get it. Read on for five of the best seafood restaurants in Eastern CT!
1. Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock
If you haven’t already been here you need to go ASAP. Sit outdoors only on picnic tables, literally right next to the water. I recommend the lobster roll.
2. Claw & Rib
Super small restaurant with delicious food. You have to try the clam chowder. It’s only $3!
3. Fred’s Shanty
Fred’s is a little stand on the way back from Ocean Beach Park. You order at the stand and then eat at picnic tables right on the water. The milkshakes are amazing, so be sure to splurge!
4. Go Fish
Like the card game! This place is in Mystic (where everything is super cute) and their shrimp cocktail is only $3.00/shrimp. They host fun wine events on Wednesday nights so be sure to check that out.
5. Catch This!
Soup, Seafood, Tacos, Burgers, Ice Cream – what more could someone want? Mmmmm… the fish and chips are delicious. (Go ahead and pretend you’re in the UK…)
