This place has limited seating and is a little pricey but worth every penny to get the greatest lobster roll on the cape!!

Fried belly clams were very good, though our adult children thought the lobster rolls had too much mayonnaise. A nice dockside loc and great view esp from the top level outside dining area. Very fast service.

We stopped at the Clam Shack for our evening meal after taking the ferry to Martha's Vineyard for the day. We were tired and hot and didn't want anything fussy or fancy. We found this to be a perfect spot! My sister and I both ordered the fried clams and weren't disappointed. There was an ample amount with French fries... More

We stumbled upon this place and were happy we tried it. We got the fried clams and onion rings. Best clams I've ever had. You can sit on their dockside porch, on a picnic table, and watch the boats come in and out of the harbor. A great Cape Cod experience.

I spend summers in Falmouth and this place is a MUST visit. Everything I've tried is so good. Their clam chowder is the best I've ever had. Don't even get me started on their lobster roll, it's to die for! And who wouldn't love sitting out by the water watching the boats and enjoying a delicious meal?

Best spot in town. Fantastic seafood, watch boats go in and out of harbor. Sit on the "hidden" top deck and enjoy the breeze. And on the 4th of July ----- the best fireworks show in New England.

The women taking orders were not friendly and have us a lot of attitude when we asked for more ketchup. Then when we couldn't locate our drinks we were scoffed at like we were idiots. I guess we should have know where to look. Management seriously needs to clear out these bad apples. Otherwise the location is awesome! The food... More

We've been here many times so I thought I'd write a review after our recent trip on a Saturday afternoon. It's located at the end of the harbor along the water and you order at a window inside and pick up your food when it is ready. There are a few tables inside and a few outside and also some... More

If you like light breaded whole belly clams this is the place to be. Winner of many Cape Cod awards. A family-owned business open only in the summer. Sit outside on picnic tables and enjoy a view of the harbor and of Vineyard sound while eating clams french fries and coleslaw
