Stay tuned because the acclaimed Lobster Shack is only days away from opening their new indoor location.

The general consensus is that the Lobster Shack serves up the very best lobster roll on the East Coast. According to an article on, it all began when Nick and Arlene Crismale began selling their freshly caught lobster right off the boat on the Branford docks.

Nick would pull in off Long Island Sound, tie up at the dock, cook up his lobsters, pick the meat and his customers would wait in line for the freshest lobster roll in New England. As word spread and the Lobster Shack made national lists for the best lobster rolls, it simply became too popular to sell his lobsters off the docks.

The Crismales seized the opportunity to move their Lobster Shack indoors to a new location on the beach in East Haven. Their steady customers are chomping at the bit waiting for them to open but knowing it will be well worth the wait.

At their new location on 3 Cosey Beach Ave. in East Haven, you'll be able to sit in air-conditioned comfort with a view of the Sound and enjoy all the mouth-watering seafood, hot dogs, burgers, and clam chowder that the Lobster Shack is known for. Remember that it's BYOB and cash-only, but there is an ATM on the premises.
