The Clam Castle?

Thanks, everyone! Can't wait to try these places! Although my fingers are still crossed the Clam Castle will miraculously re-open! :-)

The Clam Castle?

Thanks, Kattyeyes! I've always heard the hype around L&J, but never felt the ned to go since I adored Clam Castle! I'll have to try it out. :-)
Any other recommendations for fried clams? Willing to travel anywhere in the state if they're great!

The Clam Castle?

How sad!! I only discovered this place a few years back, and it quickly became one of my favorite summer spots! Anybody know of a close second?

Dinner ideas in Amherst, MA for tonight

The concert is at UMASS, will this area be affected by the block party (parking, etc)?

Thanks for the input everyone!

Dinner ideas in Amherst, MA for tonight

Hi All - I am attending a concert tonight in Amherst, MA and looking for dinner ideas. Nothing upscale, just good food, and a fun vibe. I will be driving from Hartford, up 91N, so anything along the way would be good. Note - I tend to eat out a lot in the Hartford area, so the closer to my destination, the better.

Thanks in advance!

Whats good in Bristol, CT area?

Speaking of BBQ, I prefer Flaggstead Texas Smokehouse in Farmington over Smokin with Chris (although Chris is still good).

Depending on which area of Bristol the poster is coming from, it's only about 10 mins away.

Looking for great pizza on way to casino

We ended up at The Plum Tomato in Colchester. Pizza was really good, and we'll definitely return if in the area.
Service was a little off..two beers on the specials board were not available, and when ordered the server swapped them for different kinds (same brewery) without saying a word. Did he think we wouldn't notice? When we asked, he just said, "Oh, we are out of that." We also had to flag him down when refills were needed, and felt slightly rushed when the check was brought early in the meal.
But all in all, it's a cute place, the pizza was good, and we left happy and with full bellies. :-)
Thanks everyone!

Looking for great pizza on way to casino

Thanks for the suggestions! I will look those up.
I totally agree with Mohegan being the nicer of the two, but we are headed to Foxwoods for a show. I should've mentioned in my original post that we have hit the majority of restaurants at both casinos, so looking for something outside of that.
Thanks again!

As bagelman states, I won't be near Mohegan Sun, but thanks for the suggestion. Bagelman, I'll definitely check the Glastonbury threads. Appreciate it!

Looking for great pizza on way to casino

Hi All - I've been a lurking for about a year, and finally need your help. We are headed to Foxwoods, and are looking for a great pizza place along the way. I prefer Greek style, and my boyfriend prefers NY style, so either of those would be great! We are leaving from East Hartford, and travel down route 2, so anything along that way would be perfect. Oh, and if they have good draft beer selection, that would be a bonus!

Looking forward to finding a new spot! Thanks everyone! :-)
