“Best local fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

I go here often. It has great food. The whole clams are my favorite but the scallops, The lobster bake or lobster rolls are very good too. The haddock is fresh that day and you always get a big portion. Great place to go if you like the true drive in feel, no indoor seating all picnic tables.

“Decent food, poor value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2011

For the same price, can go to a nice sit-down restaurant. Scallops are very good, fried fish is fresh, fries OK, onion rings are very good. Prices too high though, you look at a tray of food and say "$45 for this???"

“Best fried clams in the area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2010

I can't say enough about their fried clam plate. I eat fried clams a lot, I grew up near Salisbury Beach and go the Cape a lot. I have tried quite a few New England style no frills seafood "shacks". Conrad's whole belly fried clams are top notch. Crispy, a nice light batter and the clam bellies are full and creamy smooth. The scallop and clam plate is a highlight. All of the seafood is fresh as they have an adjacent fish market, so you know it's fresh. The clam bake special is great with lobster, corn, slaw & steamers.
They also have ice cream and it's a takeout only restaurant, with picnic table dining.
It's worth a visit for the fried clams alone.
Cheers.

“Yummy Clams and Onion Rings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2008

Conrad's is a great place to stop for a quick bite, an ice cream, or for a full-blown crispy-bad-for-you fried seafood dinner.

Nearly everyone takes their food "to go" and rushes home to preserve the crunchy goodness of their clam strips, scallops or haddock fillet.

It IS a drive-in in the truest sense - there is no indoor seating, only a couple of picnic tables where you can sit and listen to the whoosh of the traffic on Route 2-A.

Of course, with hamburgers, hotdogs and french fries you KNOW it's kid-friendly, too.

It really doesn't look like much when you see it from the side of the road, but on the weekends it gets a little crazy, and it IS worth a visit.
