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

My husband and I LOVED your food. It was fresh, tasty and additive. We keep coming back a few times a month. Any bad reviews I see here- these people don't know good food when they taste it!! Great people and Great food!

Our order was taken by a miserable young woman. They wanted $20.95 for a Haddock dinner (which as others have said was mediocre at best) consiting of maybe 16 fries and two thin, small pieces of fish. condiments consistedof two tiny containers of tarter and ketchup literally the size of a 16oz soda cap. Yea, never again....

My boyfriend loves this place, but I dislike the burgers, they have this weird taste. The prices have really gone up over the years. Not cheap!

Mediocre food, high prices, rude service. Amazes me that people continue to go there. The family that runs this could care less about their customers.

Ceals Cold Creations is a small bldg next to the clam stand. It's ice cream similiar to Cold Stone Creamery, where they cold mix items to ice cream. For example, chocolate with toasted coconut and chocolate chips mixed in. It was excellent, and a generous serving at a very reasonable price!
