Please suggest best seafood near Branford, CT for group of 10 diners for daughter's 16th birthday. CT readers picked the chowder pot as best seafood in New Haven county. However, my sister-in-law (we are visiting Texans) said it was terrible. But her favorite restaurant is Ruth Chris--overpriced chain restaurant and not our style. Last time we visited us she trapped us into going to Michael Jordons at the Mohegan for the Lobster dinner we craved, instead of the Flanders Fish Market we had selected. Texas has wonderful food, but the best lobster we've ever eaten is still up north-- and we felt a little cheated from last time so for our Lobster loving daughter's Birthday dinner- We want local flavor/ambiance--freshest lobster- thick chunky clam chowder--casual is O.K. huge menu selection not essential. Would also like
moderate pricing-(under 60 per person--perhaps lobster dinner around 30pp or less not including drinks). Someone on these boards suggested the Stonehouse in Guilford for a seafood lunch...Would this fit my description of desired location? All advice appreciated.
