Dino's Seafood's culinary experts have been culling sub-aquatic ingredients to build a menu of tasty seafood for 43 years. The jumbo-shrimp cocktail harmonizes with the maryland crab cakes ($6.95 each), and the rhode island and new england clam chowders play a baseline of hearty flavors ($3.25/cup; $3.80/bowl). A briny band of fried seafood dinners unites with french fries and coleslaw ($9.50–$19.95), and a cadre of baked and broiled fish dishes swagger from diner to diner, presenting a choice of two sides ($13.95–$19.00). Chefs construct the surf ‘n’ turf out of an 8-ounce steak, a surfboard covered in artificial grass, and a choice of fried scallops, shrimp, or clams ($16.95). While sailors dine on the fruit of the sea, landlubbers nosh on an assortment of sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs ($2.05–$12.20). Guests can park walking apparatuses in one of Dino's booths or chairs, which, like boxing matches held at Bed, Bath & Beyond, are cushioned.

Singled out for having the state's best clam chowder in Connecticut magazine's Best of Connecticut feature, Close Harbour hooks customers with a menu anchored in mouth-watering seafood. Start with crab-and-parmesan-stuffed mushrooms ($7) or pull out your scrimshaw spoon for New England, Manhattan, or Rhode Island clam chowder ($4/cup). Filet of sole stuffed with lump blue-crab meat ($18) reconciles the sea's two most notorious enemies, and swordfish cipolla parries a seasoned swordfish steak with a heaping helping of caramelized onions ($17). Resist flatware hegemony by getting your hands on a toasted roll topped with butter-sautéed lobster (market price), or give in to the powerful lettuce lobby with a pan-seared sea-scallop salad ($14). Any fish in the joint can also be baked, grilled, broiled, fried, or seared and plated with stir-fried veggies for $15.

The Lazy Lobster charms taste buds with a menu that showcases freshly prepared dishes made from New England seafood. Indulge claw cravings with a Maine lobster (market price) weighing up to 2 pounds or a Lazy Lobster roll constructed on generously buttered bread ($15.95). Wash your palate in a sea of flavor with a bucket of shrimp ($14.95) or a plate of ocean-fresh clams and mussels plunged, like disoriented scuba divers, into white-wine-garlic sauce ($10.95). New England clam chowder or lobster bisque ($5.95/pint, $10.95/quart) provide spoons with a steaming pool to dip into, and baby-back ribs ($12/half, $23/full) arrive at tables slow-cooked after being seasoned in dry rub for 48 hours, or until the meat says “uncle.”
