“Good and inexpensive.”

Good and inexpensive. They are not open for dinner, inexpensive, since everything is under 10 clams. Good for lunch, in mystic village, Its just a good place to grab a bite.

“Great Seafood offerings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It's called "Ten Clams" because there isn't anything on the menu over $10. I had a cup of New England clam chowder and a fish sandwich. Both were excellent! A great place for families because of value and menu offerings.

“Good Food, more than fair prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Great food, great service, and very decent prices. (I read a review below where someone said overpriced. They had to have been blind or thought they were reviewing somewhere else) my only problem was the flies.

“Overstated, Overpriced and Underwhelming”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

The menu is really a "teaser", with a few fibs. The 8 ounce hot dog which would be 2 to a pound is really a 5 or 6 to the pound hot dog (2 1/2 to 3 ounces). At $4.95, a half pound hot dog with potato chips would be reasonable, but as it is... very overpriced! The perception and expectation of a seacoast restaurant would be fresh clam strips, not frozen (remember Ho-Jo's fried clams... they were frozen and better than these). The founders' storyline has you believing that families with children and seniors need a financial break. With that in mind, please don't try to hide behind the "teaser" menu... and... coffee in this type of establishment should not be $2.25 under any circumstances.
