Our visit was today, 3/18, around 7pm- prime time for a Saturday night. We were in the area and starving so we did not anticipate eating here but had heard good things and the smell outside was incredible. We went in to find an approx. 20 minute wait, totally understandable. We were seated in about 10 minutes. I ordered the... More

Very good friendly service /they worked as a team and were VERY attentive. Reasonable lunch prices. Lobster bisque - would have liked a little bit of lobster in it. Both our seafood dishes were very fresh with good selection sides.

I went to pick up lobster bisque and decided I would add some fresh picked lobster meat to the bisque. Oddly some things had prices and some didn't; now I know why. I fully realize the fresh pick lobster meat is expensive, up to $50.00 per pound....not here...try $65.00 a pound. No wonder there is no sign anywhere to be... More

On your travels through Connecticut along I-95, maybe on your way to the casinos, be sure to pull off at exit 74 in Connecticut. A half mile up the road from the exit is the Flander's Fish Market, home of the best fried seafood you will find any where. Be sure to try the House Fish and Chips for $10,... More

Growing up in Connecticut, clam chowder has always been one of my favorite meals. Whenever I get a chance to come back to Connecticut I can't wait to have chowder and lobster. Went to lunch while visiting relatives for the holidays and ordered clam chowder and a lobster roll. The lobster roll was good but the chowder was a huge... More

Went there last night after show at Goodspeed Opera House. We had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. Food was excellent and our waitress made suggestions to us to help us make the right decision. Portions were a good size and you had many selections both meat and fish.

My friend and I decided to give this place a try. We were pleasantly surprised with the warm bread that was brought to our table and could not get enough of it! I ordered the crab cakes with a cup of the clam chowder and wish I had ordered a bowl of it. The crab cakes are probably some of... More
