“great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We recently had lunch at this "clam shack". My husband and I both had boiled lobsters and white chowder and clam cakes. The lobsters were succulent, and the white chowder was loaded with clams-one of the best around! The clam cakes were not greasy, but tasty and perfectly cooked. I can't wait to go back.

“Great place for seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

This place is just as it states: a shack. The food was wonderful! I had the clam cakes and chowder and it was great. The chowder was hot and good. The clam cakes were cooked through and had lots of clams. My husband had the fish and chips. The fish was tender and fresh with a light coating of batter. The portions for both meals were huge and filling. Even though the only seating is outside, it was extremely clean. The employees were constantly going around and cleaning the tables and picking up. We will definitely return.

“What a fabulous find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Wanted to get some seafood for our cousin who was in from California, so we decided to give Tommy's a try. So glad we did.

Granted the location isn't the best, it's on a busy street, but they make up for it with live music (it was a Saturday afternoon), friendly service, very reasonable prices and GREAT food.

My husband loves lobster and eats it whenever he can. Said the lobster there was the best he had all summer.

The fish and chips were fresh, the clam cakes wonderful, the lobster rolls plentiful.

Very happy we tried it and will be going back again.
