There is a marked transient anchorage just across the channel from Mystic Shipyard and just south of Brewers. This is on your right as you pass Masons Island on the way to the RR bridge. Your draft is OK, but more than 5 ft and you might bump a soft bottom. This anchorage is about a mile from the Seaport. You don't have to resort to Noank or Stonington.

I can't tell from your description which "lobster house" you refer to--perhaps it's one of the local restaurants, like S&P Oyster House, nest to the Rt 1 bascule bridge. The classic lobster place along the Mystic River is Abbotts Lobster-in-the-Rough, with the striped red and white awning, right along the river just north of Noank Shipyard. You can tie up there while you are enjoying your lobster.

Thanks on the anchorage advice...Yep thats it Abbotts
