Great fried clams

My husband and I stopped here on our way home to Framingham from an early--pre-season--weekend on the Cape. We ordered two fried clam platters, and we could only finish one between the two of us. The servings were plentiful, the clams were full-bellied and beautifully cooked, and the french fries... read more

Love the fish and chips, fried oysters and whole belly clams. Fresh amd always fryed with fresh oil. Clam cakes are good but not quite enough clams for my taste. Always super fresh, always super busy. We have been customers for over 10 years and anxiously await the opening every year.

Stop here on the way in on 6A for fast fix, in April seemed like only "clam shack" open for the season. Good, and decent portion; easily as good as the fried oysters in the fancy restaurants we tried. To me, fried clams and oysters taste better on a paper plate eaten on a picnic table outside, fresh out of... More

If you do not mind ordering at a counter and then they bring it to you this place has amazing food and soft serve ice cream and you can sit in the outside dining room at patio furniture on sunny days.

Good food. Mostly fried, but can have other choices,. Ice cream soft and hard at window. Small area inside to sit down and area outside front and back side. Not cheap! Right on 6A. Tight parking.

This is one of those must-do places when you visit the North side of Yarmouth or Dennis. It is small, but you can order either at the window from outside, or go inside, and you can also sit either inside or outside along historic Route 6A at picnic benches. The fried seafood is consistently good. They have been doing this... More

I've been coming here for 45 years & I still love it! No matter what else I order, I always have to have my twist cone w/cherry dip! I remember when they came out with the dips! So glad I got my Captain Frosty's fix today! YUM!

Unless you're a regular, it takes you a while to decide on your meal, given all the seafood choices you see the old-fashioned order board and among the daily specials. We were extremely happy with the lobster rolls, fish bits and smelts, which were delivered in minutes to our table. Great spot for lunch. The ice cream looked delicious, too,... More

One of the best seafood I've ever tasted :) We sat outside under the big umbrellas, it was May, the sun was shining and the wind was cold.
