Try finding a bad review of Johnny Ad’s, it’s going to take a while. It’s the pinnacle of Drive-in seafood. An Old Saybrook staple both to those who live in the area and those who visit the area. From fried platters to classic lobster rolls, it’s all delicious. And in typical fashion, most meals come with fries and slaw. Check the Website for the entire menu. Hours are pretty frequent, but you can call just in case. Also, they serve orders to go; if patience isn’t your thing, call ahead and the scrumptious fresh seafood is hot and waiting for you. Oh, and as far as prices go, this place is right on point – you get ever pennies worth.

Max’s Oyster Bar is the fourth creation of restaurateur Richard Rosenthal and his partner Bob Cooke, formerly of Legal Seafood Restaurant Company. Located among unique shops, coffeehouses, and several restaurants, Max’s Oyster Bar compliments West Hartford Center’s charming and growing shopping district. The understated atmosphere of muted colors and comfortable seating allows diner’s to focus on the truly important, the food. Featuring modern renditions of classic American seafood, Max’s Oyster Bar menu has something for everyone. While seafood is the focal point with a fantastic raw bar, there are selections for even the most land bound. Ethnic influences are apparent throughout a menu filled with new interpretations on traditional fare. A little on the pricier side, but still extremely affordable.

Lenny and Joe’s Fish Tale
RR 1
Westbrook, CT 06498
(860) 669-0767

What started in 1979 as the original “roadside clam stand” opened with just four picnic tables. The promise then was the same as the promise now, some 30 years later: to serve only the finest, freshest seafood available; to give generous portions; to provide prompt friendly service; to keep prices reasonable. Luckily, the gang at Lenny and Joe’s still stands behind these mantras and the food matches the excellence of service. Again, like Johnny Ad’s, great food, quick service and an unforgettable experience. Reviews of any less than four out of five stars don’t exist. Some specialties: lobster rolls, fried lobster app., anything with clams and more!
