About Us

Located on the Boston Post Road in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, Atlantic Seafood Market has been serving customers since 1978.

Our seafood is so fresh…well, here’s how Christopher Brooks of the New York Times put it:

“To find fish any fresher, you’d probably have to throw out a line and catch them yourself.”

We’re obsessive about finding the highest-quality, freshest, and most local seafood.

You’ll never find addeded color, pesticides, growth hormones, or preservatives in any of our products. Compare that with the fact that more than 90% of supermarket shrimp have some of these, you’ll quickly see the Atlantic Seafood difference. Our delicious lobster, steamers,  clams, and oysters are always all-natural an all delicious.

We’re small enough to call you by name every time you visit us, but big enough to carry more than 40 mouth-watering varieties of fresh seafood.

And let’s not forget the more than 20 sides, soups, and salads made from scratch by our award-winning chef, Jerry. We also carry handmade pastas, rice blends, and a complete line of toppers and spices.

Oh, and did we mention the fresh breads baked daily and the fresh produce from our on-site, five-generation produce stand?

We primarily serve Middlesex County (Old Saybrook, Westbrook, Essex, Deep River, Chester and Clinton, Connecticut) — although it’s not unusual for people to travel from towns such as Guilford, Madison, East Lyme, Old Lyme, Waterford, Haddam, Middletown, and even locations more than 40 miles away, for our fresh delicious CT seafood.

For four consecutive years, we’ve been Zagat rated we’ve also been voted Shoreline Business of the Year by the Old Saybrook Chamber of Commerce.

The New York Times has also recognized our efforts in providing the best seafood in Connecticut. Here’s just some of what they had to say:

“YOU won’t find the world’s largest selection of fish at Atlantic Seafood, but it does carry just about everything required for an old fashioned clambake — except the sandpit and logs for a fire. To find fish any fresher, you’d probably have to throw out a line and catch them yourself.”
