The Crab Shell at 46 Southfield Ave, on the boardwalk at Marina At Stamford Landing
I think it’s time to challenge the rest of New England to a seafood restaurant cook off and this waterfront spot could be one of the winners. No more trips to the Cape or Bar Harbor, just take a ride to Stamford harbor and sit back and enjoy the view, a cool one, a lobster roll and the music.
What people say;
3/18/2013 I am a newbie to Stamford but The Crab Shell’s reputation has preceded my relocation to the area. My Westchester friends had been going there for years and I even experienced it a couple of times before I moved from NYC. It used to be THE Sunday place to hang in the sun on the outside deck, drink margaritas and forget about your problems. Since I moved here, it has changed but I still enjoy the free, fun, easygoing atmosphere and the food is still very good. Lobster bisque is one of the best I’ve had and seafood has always been good. In the summer, the live bands from Thurs. through Sunday night are a great free added highlight and nothing’s better than dancing on the deck until closing time. Alot of Long Islanders from the north shore pull up on their boats and enjoy the scene as well. I believe Thursdays the big happy hour night now but thurs. through Sun. still rocks depending on the weather of course.
1/9/2013 My favorite outdoor spot in Stamford for the summer, by the water & with the freshest most delicious fish dishes. Fabulous atmosphere to enjoy some mai tais and fun in the sun – freshly (properly) shucked Bluepoints with fresh horseradish. Creamy lobster bisque, not too peppery with lovely hunks of meat. My favorite thing on the menu is the CT lobster roll without mayo – great buttered roll, naked lobster with some spice and drawn butter – perfect for splitting with your beau. Can’t wait for summer …
