Fred's Shanty Snack Shop
New London CT

Freds Shanty is our favorite place for a quick lunch when we're in New London, CT.

It sits overlooking the historical Thames River, and is about two miles from Ocean Beach Park.

There are private beaches nearby and the new London lighthouse.

If you stop at Fred's Shanty be sure to try their famous New England clam chowder.

We also grab their cheeseburgers and french fries, that they make a special way. Yum, Yum, they are so good. Sit at the picnic tables under the awning, and enjoy the view and the food.
