Sure, we can tell you all about LobsterCraft’s award-winning Connecticut State Sandwich, the hot buttery lobster roll, but really, it’s all about experiencing the freshest and best tasting lobster roll you’ve ever had firsthand! Captain Mike Harden and his crew first introduced this favorite New England delicacy to hungry Fairfield County’ers when he put his first food truck on the road in Norwalk 10 years ago. It didn’t take long for this mobile sensation to make its mark on the local dining scene. Today, not only does LobsterCraft have a few more of those food trucks on the road, which they use for catered events and public festivals, this lobster roll phenomenon now has bricks and mortar restaurants in Greenwich and Fairfield, CT, Sarasota, FL, and a summertime shack on Block Island, R
The Greenwich location at 107 Greenwich Ave (formerly Back 40 Kitchen) is a fun and casual restaurant and bar just one level up from the street. Wrapped in rustic wood walls and beams and laced with a somewhat nautical theme, the space excludes character and has an undeniable energy.
LobsterCraft’s signature lobster rolls start with the best soft toasted buns filled with the freshest and sweetest lobstermeat. And no matter the style, the lobster remains front and center. Lobster roll cravings are satisfied with LobsterCraft’s Coastal Roll, their signature hot buttery roll. Other customer favorites include the Heat Wave spiked with serrano and habanero pepper infused butter, the LBLT filled with lobster, bacon, lettuce, and tomato, and topped with garlic aioli, and the Dirty Maynard, a Maine-style cold lobster salad roll dressed in seasoned mayonnaise. California style with veg and a killer surf and turf roll share the stage with other specialties such as tacos, sliders, creamy mac n cheese, grilled cheese, and a legit lobster bisque. Scratch-made New England-Newport-style clam chowder is creamy perfection brimming with locally sourced Copps Island clams from Norm Bloom & Sons.
LobsterCraft is open year round. “The colder the water – the sweeter the meat,” says Captain Mike, a Coast Guard Captain and licensed Lobster fisherman.
Additional winter menu items include homemade soups, fall-off-the-bone St Louis style ribs, a pickle brined fried chicken sandwich, and a hearty meatloaf sandwich topped with creamy mac-n-cheese.
The Greenwich location is available for private events and can accommodate up to 40+ guests.
A full service bar and custom menus are available.
