We got out to the beach last weekend. We had been looking forward to going to Abbott's Lobster but it is not open until this weekend. We had two terrific experiences at the Sea Swirl. Delicious fries and great fried clams. Here is the kicker-- the fried scallops are amazing, better and more interesting than the clams. Fish sandwich is exactly as you'd want it. In the evening we went to the Seahorse, behind the marina in Noank and had clear chowder which was a revelation. This was a good honest meal, no chichi bull, for a reasonable price. The crowd was a good mixture of loafer wearing Poindexters and Regular Joe's, which, in my experience, is usually a good sign.
