Best Hot Lobster Rolls and Water View Dining at Clinton Harbor

Share

Hot lobster rolls are known as a Connecticut Lobster roll. Served in a hot dot roll, it’s picked hot lobster and hot melted butter. That’s it! None of this cold lobster roll salad.

A trip to the Connecticut seashore wouldn’t be complete without a visit to a local seafood restaurant or fish market.  On our recent camping trip to Hammonasset we stopped in Clinton Harbor to pick up some fresh steamers and do some alfresco dining for lunch, treating ourselves to the best hot lobster rolls. Chips and drinks are also available.

Lobster Landing

 

The Lobster Landing Fish Market sells retail fresh steamers, clams on the half-shell, lobsters and picked lobster meat for take-home.  We brought back two pounds of steamers and cooked them up back at the campground!

My three-year old grandson wasn’t too sure what to make of the 3-pound lobster that the staff brought out from the cooler for him to look at!

On a recent camping trip to the shore last summer, we stopped for a light lunch and treated ourselves to the most delicious fresh hot lobster roll sandwich around, dripping in melted drawn butter and served on a grilled hot dog roll.  On a beautiful sunny afternoon with a light breeze blowing in off of Long Island Sound, we sat outside at cafe tables under a canopy and enjoyed the  nautical view of Clinton Harbor marinas and lobster boats.

The view from our tables on the outside patio (made from crushed clam shells) offered us a magnificent view of the summer cottages and homes on Cedar Island.  Years ago there was only one home on the island that had electricity, as most used propane for fuel.

After our lunch we walked around the marinas looking at all the boats, from small outboard runabouts to luxurious yachts.  My grandkids were all excited and already my grandson Slugger is asking his dad to buy him  a “big boat.”
