The outside seating, up or down, is delightful. They have a good view of the harbor and on a nice day it can't be beat. The food is average but give the onion rings a pass.

I never order fried shrimp, it always is over done! Well not at the Clam Shack, our daughters brought shrimp rolls home for my husband and I for a treat and they where! Absolutely delicious, now I not only get my clams there, I enjoy a shrimp roll, too. I also gave it a five star rating for atmosphere, it... More

The clams were y he best I have ever had. They give you a lot but the price is a little steep. Relaxing down by the water.

as a Falmouth resident, I'm amazed that it took us so long to finally try the Clam Shack. However, considering how rude the kid and woman at the counter were, we weren't missing anything and we have no need to ever go back. Never ordered, just left. I saved money and was greeted properly at Seafood Sams AND had a... More

The prices they charge for clams is beyond unreasonable. They definitely have a "fleece the tourist" mindset.

We went to the Clam Shack for lunch and it totally delivered. The fried clams were fresh and the lobster roll was chock full of lobster. It wasn't exactly cheap but not crazy expensive considering the freshness of everything. Seating is limited with some tables inside and some picnic tables outside on the dock. There's no rest room, only a... More

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
