Restaurants in Groton, CT

Submarines are made in Groton — warships, that is — and there are plenty of places in and around town that make sub sandwiches, which here are known as grinders rather than subs. Tubular sandwiches aside, the thing you want to eat in this sub base (which is home of the Submarine Force Museum) is seafood. Lobster is eaten al fresco at picnic tables either whole or picked and butter-sopped, packed into a bun as a lobster roll. Curiously Groton is home to an out-of-the-way bubble tea shop called SnoTea, which also serves multi-flavored jelly ice.
