I am sending a picture of my 2.5 year old niece enjoying her first Abbott's lobster.

She loved it, as you can tell from the picture.

Abbotts Open for the Season Winners

Steve & Arlene - very long standing customers - have tried repeatedly to be the season's #1 customer. Always, something has come up to thwart their quest. Finally, this season, they left their home in NJ at 4 am (!) and drove to Abbott's where they set up their beach chairs in front of the order window. This time there was no one around & they finally laid claim to WINNER OF THE FIRST CUSTOMER RACE - 2007!

Abbotts Open for the Season Winners
And for the SHOW position - last year's winners, Vin & Judy Pesce & Craig & Janet Thomas, of Hamden, CT. These are the folks who created the novel idea of bringing along beach chairs to make the wait easier.. unfortunately for them, they were beaten at their own game this year! Better luck next year.. and many thanks for trying to win again!

I visited Abbott's in early September. While waiting in line, I made a hat out of an Abbott's menu to amuse myself. By the way, I am a huge Abbott's fan. I stop by every time im in Mystic, and suggest it to all my friends as well.

These intrepid Abbott's fans were determined to be first place winners this year. They arrived early in the morning equipped with beach chairs and blankets to ward off the morning chill. Alas, they were greeted by Steve & Arlene who already held the coveted first place position. They vow to be first next season!

My wife and I had the opportunity to enjoy your fine establishment again, our first return in 23 years! We got engaged on your deck way back when. Nothing has changed except, perhaps, the quality of your food has improved. In fact, my wife is the lobster lover. Many thanks! We hope to see you again before another 23 years pass!

New England residents have been trapping lobsters since the 1700's, but they only used them for fertilizer until realizing they are a gourmet cuisine!
