Best belly clams and fries south of Providence

DB's is an institution in sleepy Bethany Beach. But, as summer beach fare goes, fried clams, clam rolls and fresh cut french fries are an essential. Think Philbrick's (now Liam's) at Nauset Beach on Cape Cod. Don't forget fried oysters, shrimp, fish and chicken strips. DB's is wicked clean... read more

We visited DBs today for lunch. While I wasn't too impressed with the fries that came with our meals, my husband's oyster po boy sandwich was great, as were my Ipswich clams. My daughter's clam strips were standard and something I would not have loved to eat as a meal. Service was fairly quick for a lunch hour. Further inspection... More

I understand that lobster is expensive but the lobster roll, while tasty, was skimpy. Side of fries tasted good, but was certainly not a generous portion. Cole slaw was also good, served in the usual little plastic cup. One would expect to pay about $12 for this type of lunch, but at over $20, it left much to be desired.... More

Their fries were fine, but the lobster roll & the oyster po boy were both very good. Not cheap but worth it.

The Fried seafood is fresh and cooked great. Worth the short wait. Don't miss this place for a nice beach lunch. Crab Cake is very nice !

If you don't mind waiting in line and eating french fries its not too bad. Some of the other foods leaves a lot to be desired.. Of course you can cover anything bad with old bay seasoning.

Worth waiting when there's a line. There's something different about their fries compared to the ones elsewhere. They cut them wider so you get more potato taste and less oil taste. Put old bay seasoning on them. Yum Yum Yum. They work very fast to get you through the line.
