AAA Inspector Notes
Classic. For more than a half a century, folks have enjoyed this quintessential New England seafood shack's flavorful lobster rolls and steamed lobster that can range from 2 to a whopping 10 pounds. Local steamers, mussels and corn on the cob are also popular choices. Their cooking process all but guarantees a tender outcome. If you are not in the mood for seafood, there are hot dogs and oven-roasted chicken available. Call for summer hours. In May they generally close Monday through Thursday. Guests order at the counter then wait for their number to be called to choose their seats. Both the indoor section as well as the covered picnic table area overlook beautiful Noank Harbor. There's a seperate dessert shack on the property that sells Gifford's small batch ice cream. If traveling with children, ask the staff for complimentary oyster crackers to feed the large striped bass that live near the docks.
