Non Coastal Seafood
Much has been written here and the Globe did an article on the best coastal clam shacks from CT to ME. Everyone has a favorite among those. Hounds for those of us that can't always get to the shore where is your favorite spot along route 91 from Hartford to Montpelier for good fresh fried seafood?

While I am not going to put it in the same league as the better shoreline spots, Mickey's Oceanic in East Hartford is reliable for whole bellies and the like. Nice "shack" atmosphere too.

Big fan of Maine Seafood, just off 91 in E. Windsor (Warehouse Point exit). I typically get the fried oysters (or fried something) and the s/o gets a grilled fish item. Never been disappointed, although the side dishes (especially the veggies) can be a bit boring.

Is this the seafood restaurant you get to by taking route 6, then turn right by the hotel and another right (pass the indoor soccer bubble on the right) and follow that road thru a small "downtown area" about 1-2 miles until you see the restaurant on the left?
We pass by this place sometimes on the way to indoor soccer and it's always crowded with folks waiting outside, but I forgot the name. It looks interesting.
