We had not been to Westbrook Lobster in a couple of years and decided to stop for lunch. We each ordered the appetizer mussels. They were very good, steamed in a kind of beer-tomato broth reminiscent of cioppino or boulliabaise. There was plenty of garlic toast alongside the mussels and our waitress also brought plain bread for my companion who... More

1st night had appetizers and beer - both excellent (clam chowder and steamed clams). All their beers on tap are local, and have a good selection. 2nd night had a fish dinner that was good and more beer (which is always good).

The food is ok. The restaurant is old and smells moldy. Its backed up to a river which may have something to do with the smell. My husband and I used to visit this restaurant at least a few times a year as it is right down the road from us. I was issued a Preferred Guest Rewards card 2x... More

Comfortable atmosphere with great ambience. Outdoor dining areas look like they'd be fun in warm weather. Reasonable prices and decent portions. Enjoyed the CT Lobster Roll which is served warm. Definitely worth a return visit next time I'm in the area.

We have been here many times and always have good meals. This time Lobster roll was excellent with large pieces of lobster. The mac and cheese with lobster is to die for!!!

Last night was delicious! Clam chowdah, burger, and lobstah roll were all very good. We only eat the New England style lobstah roll which is the cold one. They do serve the Connecticut style which is warm with buttah. The service was a bit lacking, but we weren't in a rush, luckily.

We had lunch there last week. The place is very nice overlooking the quinipiake river with both indoor and outdoor dinning options . As you would expect, the menu is mostly seafood, not very fancy, just basic dishes. The fish and chips I had were excellent. The best Iv'e had anywhere in the area. My wife had the clam chowder...
