Hot Lobster Roll at Lobster Landing - Clinton, Connecticut

If you visit the Connecticut coast, you need to eat a hot lobster roll at Lobster Landing LLC in Clinton. We drove in through the town of Clinton and enjoyed views of all kinds of interesting homes on the way. Here's a short video of part of our journey.

The building sporting the name "Lobster Landing" looks a million years old and tells you that this place has been here for a while and is one of a kind.

If you want fresh seafood, enter the above shack. But if you want a hot lobster roll and cold canned sodas/bottled water, visit the marquee to the left. When we visited in June 2010, the marquee was staffed by friendly teenage girls making some extra bucks during their summer break. We ordered our hot lobster rolls ($14) and a few minutes after we'd found a table on the deck just feet from the water, one of the girls delivered the food.

We'd never seen or eaten anything like it. Buttery lobster goodness on a roll that was soft, but strong enough to handle the juices. Considering the amount of lobster in these rolls, they're an absolute bargain. Very tasty and the views on a sunny day aren't bad either. There are quite a few places in the area serving hot lobster rolls, but I can't see many of them topping Lobster Landing.
