I went for an ice cream outdoors. They refused to serve me because I did not have a mask and I certainly was not going to stand OUTDOORS in 85 degree weather with a a mask on when the state has opened for outdoor dining....Does that make any sense to anyone? Apparently common sense is distinct. Shame on you Ronnie's, I will spend my $$ some place deserving.More

I’ve been going to Ronnies since I was a kid. I recall the old days 5 hot dogs for a dollar. This is a fried seafood restaurant. They do have burgers, chicken fingers. The haddock and chips are great. The whole belly clams and chips...are great. My kids love going there. This is a cafeteria type restaurant. You place your order and it’s put on a tray and you can eat on the porch or outside. And if you have room you can get Ice Cream. And yes the Ice Cream is awesome. The staff is awesome. I always find it clean. Once a year I treat myself to a banana boat.More

Paid $6 for a Mocha frappe. They used mocha chip ice cream and the frappe was nothing more than chocolate milk with annoying buts of chocolate in it . Never again

Ronnie’s food was good but portions were small and price was high for a clam shack. Maybe it was an off night. It was packed but price was about $50 for two.

Excellent whole belly clams. Service is wonderful. Great ice cream as well. Pretty good menu but it is limited.

Small friendly walk-up counter with good service, and fair prices for excellent old fashioned fresh New England seafood. Some tables to eat in. Easy take-out.

Every year we eagerly look forward to when Ronnie's in Charlton opens. We love this place! Food is excellent, service is prompt and friendly and it's super clean. Fried clams, scallops, curly fries, are all delicious. The chowder has great flavor and is nice and...thick and hot. Sandwiches are good and we also love the ice cream. Every fall we are so sad when it closes but now it's springtime and they are open!More

Great fresh seafood that doesn't taste greasy or "fishy". French fries are not my favorite but with such great seafood who needs French fries? Plus the ice cream is awesome if you're still hungry!
