Just minutes from our house and here's a genuine Maine lobster experience except it's CT. It's got the harbour, the dock, the lobster tank, fresh lobster rolls slick with butter, all aka heaven. The menu is simple, the only other option is hot dogs but who cares?

Every year the food area at lobster landing grows. In summer there is plenty of seating on the Clinton harbor The lobster meat is out in a cheese cloth sock and dumped in melted butter and put on a grilled bun Amazing lobster roll albeit $16 But they have hot dogs and sausage and peppers

Great classic New England Lobster Shack. They consistently win Connecticut Magazine's Best Lobster Roll award, and for good reason. Worth the trip from anywhere.

I've had them all and this was the biggest and among the best. Looks a little run down but that's intentional. The people are nice and the location is great.

This is a great local place for a casual lunch. These lobster rolls are famous around the CT shoreline and are a great quick bite during the summer, beware they are more expensive than expected!

Not fancy. Just a tent by the water with excellent lobster rolls. Plastic tables and chairs. Order as you walk in and pay as you walk out.

This is a legitimate lobster roll. Nothing but lobster, butter and toasted roll. But with that being said maybe I don't like a real lobster roll. It was too rich for me with all the butter. But if you like the real deal give it a try.
