Shanks Waterfront Restaurant

Waterfront Dining at Harborside Marina

SHANKS is the greatest new waterfront dining experience on the CT Shoreline, located in Clinton Harbor right at Harborside Marina in Clinton, CT.  Our glorified “Food Boat” was created from a 1974 Bruno & Stillman 42 foot Commercial Lobster Boat, completely customized to house a state of the art commercial kitchen, capable of cooking fresh seafood, lobster, burgers, and much more.  We offer classic New England fry, healthy choices, and land-lubber options. The view and location are second to none, and all the food is made-to-order. The original boat came from The Sound School in New Haven, CT and was used as a research vessel for 20 years before decommissioning.  The “Sounder” was transported from New Haven to Clinton in 2014 and the transformation took nearly a year to complete.  Shanks now resides at Harborside Marina but is a fully transportable lobster boat!
