“The Fish an Chowder Yummy and so fresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

I had the Lobster Salad and Manhattan Chowder. The salad was on a big plate loaded with Lobster, two containers of dressing a sweet dressing and two yummy biscuits on the side.

My friend had the Hot Lobster Roll and New England Chowder. We got an extra plate and split the meals.
Delicious. We both had soda's. Bill came to $40.31

“Don't get the seafood!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Ordered scallops, which tasted really fishy, rubbery & watery. Shrimp was flat, freezer burnt, over breaded
Clam fritters were really tough & hard to cut with even a steak knife.
Expected a place with the name "Ten Clams" & a clam logo to be a seafood place. No! apparently at one time it referred to the fact that nothing was priced over $10, hence $10 clams.

“the menu is not everything under $10 as advertised”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Frankly, we sat down looked at the menu and left. The restaurant advertises itself as everything under $10 and there was very few items on the menu that met that requirement. Many items were 11.95 and some were over $15!

“Friendly...and Frozen”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Cute little place in the Olde Village with a great location. My husband had the fish and chips, while I had the fried shrimp. Although there was nothing wrong with the food, there was nothing great about it either. Pretty sure everything that touched my mouth had been frozen 10 minutes earlier. My husband and I both agreed that this is probably a great place for families who want to dine outside, but not for us. So if you're looking for something quick and want to eat outside, this place is great for you. BUUUUTT, if you're looking for some good fresh seafood, try elsewhere.
