A great clam shack RIGHT ON THE BEACH at Nauset. They serve a variety of fried items - the usual clams, scallops, fish etc. Also grilled burgers & GREAT hot dogs. There's something for everyone at Liam's.

What a treat to eat good food at a beach. Plenty of picnic tables with umbrellas to eat at. Went twice this week, both times the food was great. Service excellent. Fish sandwiches, wraps, gilled chicken, and the milk shakes (frappes) yummy!

The food is yummy. The best way to enjoy this food is to order as you are packing up from the beach. They need half an hour or better to make the food. It will be advisable to take the food back to your hotel instead of getting sand in your food!:-)

I honestly don't think I've ever had anything from Liam's besides their onion rings (maybe french fries a long time ago?), but they literally have the best onion rings I've ever had. I don't even like onion rings and for some reason I keep coming back for theirs. I have to visit whenever I'm on the cape. Because it's at... More

Liam's (formerly Philbricks) has been serving up ice cream, fried fish and its justly famous onion rings for decades, right on the beach at Nauset. One bit not everyone knows, is that after 5, you don't have to pay ($20! during beach hours) for parking and can drive up, park and order your meal to eat there on picnic tables... More

This was our first time visiting this area and beach stand. It's crowded and a favorite stop based on the crowd. There are picnic tables to eat at in the sand. It is a beach shack type place to eat. The prices are quite high in my opinion. The lobster roll was expensive as were the other items. They load... More

Actually, we weigh every portion of seafood, including the highest grade of lobster meat so our valued customers get the same generous portion every time they come to Liam's. The lobster roll is weighed at 1/2 pound of meat with a portion of french fries on the side in a separate container, so as not to mask the portions. I... More

Had a huge group--lots of fried delicious options so make sure you are ready for a heavier meal! I had the lobster salad roll (it was a TON of lobster, I was impressed) with fries. I also tried the chowder and it was awesome! Fun stop at the beach.

Liam's is one of the places to get the best onion rings. My husband insists on a stop at Liams whenever we are on the Cape. you will usually find them open even in the Fall if the sun is shining. We were there on Columbus Day (October 2015) and YES they were open!!! My only issue was that the... More

Liam's is the beach oasis at Nauset Beach and we are lucky to have it. The pricing could be better but the food hits the spot when experiencing another day at the awesome Beach. Ice Cream, the usual fried fare and cold unhealthy drinks are offerred for our consumption. The Fried Scallops seem to be ALWAYS sweet! And the Fried... More
