Lobster and clam bake is held on Cabbage Island. You can pay for a boat ride or take your own boat to island. There can be a large group (up to 175) people in attendance.

This was a great trip. My wife found this on Trip Advisor, and her being a lobster lover, it was a must do for us. First, this is a cash only business but there is a close by ATM right on pier 6 if you're not prepared. We went on a Thursday in the 2nd week of July and there... More

Our innkeeper highly recommended this, and he was so right. A ferry takes you over and gives you info on celebrity homes and points of interest. You then disembark and are welcomed warmly by the family that puts on the clambake. There is indoor space and covered porch area so you are not sitting in hot sun unless you choose... More
