It is the best lobster roll I have ever had. We like to do a wine tasting at Maugle Sierra Vineyard in Ledyard and then bring a bottle of wine to Abbott's, followed by ice cream by the Mystic Draw Bridge for the perfect date day. you can sit at a picnic table watching the sailboats go by for they...

Fun outdoor eating. Lobster in all forms. Check out under the dock where big fish hang out for handouts. Not fine dining but adequate and better than cooking the big snapping crustaceans at home.

Abbott's is the place to dine when lobster and stuffed clams are far more important than tables and silverware. The dirt parking lot is always packed and the line to place your order is long. You sit at a rickety picnic table with plastic utensils and a plastic lobster bib. But when you take the first bites of your appetizers... More

Abbotts in the Rough Noank, Ct. Abbotts has been an institution in Southeastern Ct. for a long time. The food generally is good but Lobster is the king here. They offer Lobster dinners picnic style with a side of corn on the cob. Self -service and outside dining is the way to go. On a nice day it’s very pleasant... More

I went there over Labor day on Yankee magazine's recommendation. Nice concept with a great view, al fresco dining, and a 1/4 lb Lobster Roll that was the equivalent of $72 per lb. A bit on the pricey side. Plenty of parking.

Abbott's has been our favorite for forty years but we live in Michigan and don't get there very often. Imagine our disappointment when we visited at the end of October only to learn that they won't reopen until May! We still love Abbott's. Lobster rolls and corn on the cob, but fortunately there is an alternative just down the road.... More

Stopped for dinner and had the basic lobster roll, crab cakes and tomato basil bisque. All food was fresh and cooked to order. Personally, I prefer the lobster rolls in Maine but Abbott's is a good choice if you're in the area.

DH and I were surprised at this place when we arrived. Outside a large menu is posted and you order at the counter. We both ordered the lobster dinner (1.5 pound lobsters), which came with coleslaw and a bag of chips for about $25. We didn't realize this was a BOYB, so while we waited for our order DH went...

On a rainy night and craving for lobster we drove south a few miles from Mystic CT to Abbott's Lobster restaurant. Please don't miss this place as it's quite an experience if you're traveling around Mystic and southeast Connecticut. Terrific seaside location, abundant outdoor seating for dry pleasant weather, and the best selection of lobster items. No table service but... More
