If you just want to relax and sit down at a picnic table and enjoy a few clams or lobster roll while watching the boats pull out of Falmouth harbor, go for it! You'll enjoy the experience. However, it's cash only, parking is extremely limited and it doesn't take too many partons to make it feel like rush hour. So,... More

We had lunch here on a beautiful sunny day. We sat outside at a picnic table watching the boats come and go. It is just what you want from a seafood shack - - delicious fresh seafood. You order at the counter and your name is called out when your order is ready. I had the fried strip clams and... More

Out for a stroll by the beach with the family, and decided to go by the docks to check out some of the lovely boats and yachts. Along the way we got hungry, but there was no time for a sit down lunch since we had to be heading back home soon. We knew of the Clam Shack, but never... More

We were eager to return to the Clam Shack on our way back from the Vineyard but were disappointed with the food. The lobster roll had shells in it - not just one but a few. The french fries were limp and lukewarm.

A great Cape Cod fish place. The food is only half the experience. Sitting on the upper outside deck watching the boats come in and out of the harbor is the part the we liked the best. Service seems a little disorganized, but we got what we ordered. We will definitely come back.

Small shack with indoor and outdoor seating. My son and I split a medium clam strips and onion rings and the order came to 38.00 dollars. I think I got charged for the whole bellies,but I didn't notice until that night when I told my husband how expensive it was. My own fault for not paying attention, but annoying enough... More

Do not expect ambience at The Clam Shack (it truly is a shack, with picnic tables to eat at), however, it is located right on Falmouth Harbor and the seafood can't be beat. We only eat fried food at The Clam Shack so I can't comment on any other items. The fried clams and fried scallops are to die for... More

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.
