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!
