"Outragous"

Rating the fried food here would not be an example of an "experience" re: eating out. This is a small shack with limited parking and a long wait for your order. The prices are far beyond your expectations. Your conversation after leaving this place will cnter on "why did we eat there"????? I can't... read more

I visited Ceals with my friend who had come from the UK. When I went to pay, the price didn't come close to the prices on the painted menu over where you order (15% more). I asked the person serving me why I was being charged so much. She referred to the "owner" who was a woman who nastily said... More

Came her after a nice day at the beach with family. Walked away very disappointed. The food quality and quantity is not worth the outrageous prices they charge. Save your hard earned money and pass this place up! Service is as bad as the food!

We phoned in our order for pickup. We should have checked the contents before going home to eat. The food we received was not what we ordered. We called again to report the mishap. No-one at CEALS seemed the least bit concerned nor remorseful. When we went back to the restaurant we were treated rudley and were given a lecture... More

Myself like many others ( and I am a local ) expect these little hole in the wall seafood shacks to somehow be romantic and iconic and.......this one isn't .The food is ok but there are many better ones. The wait , the flavor level of the food , the amount of food offered and the high prices are not... More

Long history and not the best beach location. Owners either too cheap or not smart enough to address the property short comings. Haven't paved parking lot in all these years. WHY? Really don't care about their customers and it shows with their investment. Always has and will be a seasonal grab an go beach business.

This Clam Shack does have good clams but the price are outrageous. We will never go to this Clam Shack again. Pricy is one thing that most people can live with but outrageous prices drives customers away. There seems to be an attitude in this Hampton Beach Area that they can ask any price for their product because in a... More

Although it is pretty expensive for a fried food take-out window, the food is always hot, fresh, and melt-in-your-mouth good. We particularly love the scallops, shrimp, french fries, and onion rings, but pretty much everything is great here at this great old-time seaside shack.

My wife and I are from Newburyport and spend a lot of time at Salisbury Beach. We have so many great restaurants to choose from in our area. When we want great, and I mean great fried seafood at a reasonable price we head for Ceal's. We always get the scallop roll with onion rings. We have introduced other friends... More
