New CT Chowhound-Lobster Birthday Dinner Tomorrow

New to CT & Chowhound. Please help me find a good lobster dinner in an upscale restaurant (no lobster pounds please) for my birthday tomorrow. Prefer near Hartford/NE CT but willing to travel as well (Boston, Providence, southern CT). Thanks for your help!

  1. Lenny and Joe's Fishtale in Westbrook (sit down restaurant) - I haven't eaten there but have eaten at their self-serve place in Madison and the food is excellent. They have a web site so you could check their menu.

      Lenny and Joe's is not exactly what you'd call upscale. It's a family-type place.

        I'd suggest the Terra Mar at Saybrook Point Inn. Lovely view, too.

    2. I suggest the Terra Mar at the Saybrook Point Inn. Lovely view and defintely not a lobster pound.

      1. There is always the ChowderPot in Hartford. Very consistent each and everytime we go. I highly suggest there if you want to be in the Hartford area.

        1. Thanks everyone! We actually ended up going to Abbott's, more of a lobster pound, but very good.
