I stopped in for a quick lunch after reading about the restaurant's grand opening on Facebook. What a delightful find! Fish O'Hoy is situated in a strip mall on busy Main St in East Haven, and easy to miss. Take the time to find it and you won't be disappointed. They serve fried seafood; shrimp, scallops, clam strips, whole belly clams, onion rings and fries, as well as burgers and hot lobster rolls. I indulged in a lobster roll, which had a good ratio of claw to knuckle meat, all of which was fresh, perfectly cooked and seasoned with just the right amount of melted butter drizzled over the top, served with a wedge of fresh lemon. It was so good, I returned in less than a week for another.
Order at the counter and eat at one of the few tables, or take out. Finish up lunch or dinner here with a treat from Sugar, an award-winning bakery just a couple of doors away. Free parking is available on the street or in a lot behind the strip mall.
