Nice fried clam dinner (in winter) in Hartford area and in Old Saybrook area

robpalbny | Jan 16, 2009 12:19 PM

We'll be traveling from southwestern Massachusetts next weekend, going just south of Hartford then getting on Route 9 in New Britain to go over to Old Saybrook. I'm looking for a place my wife and two daughters, ages 4 and 9, can stop for a nice fried (whole belly) clam dinner Saturday night on the way or once we get there. Prefer not too fancy or too upscale. I currently have reservations at the Saybrook Fish House in Rocky Hill (near Hartford). Any better suggestions? Johnny Ads in Saybrook will be closed by the time we get over to the coast. Then, we may be looking for a nice fried clam dinner over in the Old Saybrook vicinity (or a neighboring town) early Sunday afternoon for my wife's birthday party (6 adults, 6 kids). Someplace "nice" for her birthday would be nice, but again, not too upscale. I'm thinking Lenny and Joe's Fish Tale in Westbrook 'cause I can't find anyplace else that's going to open around 1:30-ish and serves fried clams (no fried clams at the Hideaway, Boom, Doc and Dine, Aspen, Penny Lane Pub or S&P Oysters in Mystic). Am I missing someplace?
