Will be driving from one to the other. Looking for Lobster Shack(s) or other casual, fresh lobster places to eat in one location, the other or in between.

      I don't mean a place named "Lobster Shack" as seen by the link in my request, I mean a generic - eat on picnic tables, oceanside, casual eatery.

          Just saw that on the map. Champlin's would be nice, if we get there. May be worth the digression. We do have time.

            STELLA BLUE on Water St. in Warren RI has the best lobster roll, hands down. It's not a shack, but a very casual restaurant by the bay . It does have outside casual seating, and if you want to go closer to the water, I'm sure they'll pack your sandwiches for you.

              quitos in bristol isnt a shack either,but they are "on the water",serve lobster,and lots of other great,fresh seafood.they have really good fried clams,pasta dishes,and i hate to admit it,but they have an awesome red clam chowder,notice im not calling it the manhatten style,cuz in rhode island they like it clear,red is for new yorkers......

          evelyns is now the biggest rip-off ever,we used to love,but they are now the worst.the quality has dropped and the prices have tripled,i cant believe that even the tourists would go there,they are even worse then flos,which is pretty bad.
