  • The "Boat" might be the best deal you can get. Choose your seafood, and let it be served on a large bed of fries. If you want malt vinegar, you must ask for a bottle.
  • Great view, amazing food (we had the lobster roll and haddock boat). 9 year old vegetarian daughter wouldn't eat the veggie burger though - too spicy.
  • The food is excellent. Much better than woodmans will ever dream of being. Can be pricey but it is well worth it if you want good seafood.
  • Best fried clam strips in New England!
  • Best fried clams on the north shore!
  • Featured on Food TVDiners, Drive-ins and DivesNovember 19, 2007"One of a Kind"Guy Fieri travels to a local legend in Massachusetts where people line up for whole belly clams.

  • Great lobster, nice atmosphere mostly. Don't go if you plan on staying for a while after you finish your meal, the patrons don't like it if you sit for too long while they are waiting for a table.
  • The food was bland, not seasoned and greatly overpriced. Would not recommend if you are looking for good seafood.
  • Clams are great!
  • The best fried clams in New England...

  • The Fisherman's Combo will test your manhood! It is a big plate of fried: whole clams, shrimp, fish, scallops, fries, and onion rings. Everything is perfect. This made me a believer in whole clams!
  • Very expensive. They dont take credit, so get ready to empty your wallet. Food is very good, but pretty much par for the course in Mass. Unless you are nearby, i wouldnt go out of ur way to eat here
  • Very good clams. The seafood chowder is delicious. It's filled with whole scallops, shrimp, lobster and clams!
  • WIth its picturesque salt-marsh location, charming is exactly what you can expect here. Read the full review here: http://now.tufts.edu/articles/dish-clam-crawl-continued
