All You Can Eat
I had never heard of Custy's Buffet before. I didn't even know there was an "all you can eat lobster buffet in CT." We found out about Custy's Lobster Buffet when we went to Mystic Seaport. Their address was listed on the bottom of the Mystic Seaport map.
We didn't even know Connecticut had a lobster all you can eat buffet, so we were delighted. Unfortunately Custy's was closed that day because it was July 4th, and didn't reopen till the 7th. Here's their sign.
We decided that this was one place we had to visit before the relatives went back to Indiana. So we picked Friday to go to Gillette Castle, then swing by Foxwoods to play, then go to the Lobster buffet. It turned out to be a great plan!
We showed up at Custy's at exactly 5 oclock, when they open. The neat thing about Custy's restaurant is that only half of the restaurant is a buffet, the other half of the restaurant, is a sit down and order, a la carte menu. Yes, that's me grabbing my 3rd lobster. :)
More Pictures of Custy's Buffet
When we entered Custy's buffet at exactly 5 o'clock, when they opened, we didn't know that the restaurant is split in two. If you go left, you go to the buffet. If you go right, you sit at a dining table and order by menu. We had already had our heart (and stomachs) set on the buffet. Ooo-la-la... Custy's Lobster Buffet a view inside.

PS Secret to eating more at buffets. When you go get your first plate, also grab some chunks of fresh pinapple. After you finish eating your first plate, eat a chunk of fresh pinapple, and do that after each plate
