5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014 NEW

The summer is nearing a close and this is where we decided to go to get those last treats before the hectic school schedule kicks in again. We have been going here for years and years and the quality is always the same and the coziness of this spot remains the same. Even though it is right on the road... More

I wish I didn't live two hours away from this little roadside shack. OK, so there is no "ambience," no indoor seating, and no view of the water, but the fish is so fresh and expertly cooked!

My family and I were just driving through Mystic, CT, hungry for a late lunch and found this quick and easy remade ice cream store made into serving ice cream and fresh fried clams. Just the perfect combination to start with we had clams, lobster rolls and lobster sliders and a burger - all made to order so we did... More

This was fun. Stop at a seafood/ice cream stand, sit and eat your food at a shaded picnic table overlooking water (and the railroad, which is not "too" close by). Wonderful, excellent and fresh food, Our party ate clam strip roll, sweet potato fries, full-bellied clams, and crabcakes. We all left happy and eager for a return trip. Food is... More

I return here often with my family every year as soon as it opens for the season! Usually order a foot long hot dog with fries, sometimes a shake, and who can resist a ice cream cone for dessert? The food is always hot and fresh. Employees are ALWAYS friendly and helpful to everyone. Food orders are quick! There is... More

I have been here several times,mostly because of convenience. It's a challenge to find a clam in the clam fritters.The fried clams are okay,but portions are small for the price they charge. If you want really great fried clams,try the Pizza Palace in Old Saybrook..Big Portions,comes won a big platter with fries,and thin delicious onion rings.If your disappointed with all... More

Closed in the winter but opens in April for the summer season. Best fried clams around! Great take out food. Hard and soft swirl ice cream to top off your meal!

Old fashioned New England drive-in (walk-up.) Good clams but expensive. Still, a required vacation experience.

Just ate there yesterday the last day of our trip. We got there late, five minutes before closing but they still served us a great meal. Scallops were great, shrimp amazing and fish and chips really good. The fries could use some upgrading to match the rest of the food. The people working there were great staying late to make... More
