“Counter-serve seafood restaurant known for its lobster rolls & water views. You’ll love their steamers, stuffed clams, clam chowder — acclaimed the best of its kind by food writers and reporters worldwide. Clams and oysters on the half shell, mussels, shrimp, crab, corn on the cob and the great New England seafood feast, are all mouth watering and prepared fresh. Abbott’s offers a full line of soft drinks, but does not serve alcoholic beverages. Feel free to bring your own wine or beer.”
