While visiting Cape Ann, I had to make a trip to the Clam Box for fried clams and it was worth the trip. A must for anyone visiting the cape. Great, full bodied, yummy, clams.

The positive - onion rings, lobster roll, clam chowder. The less than expected - Fried Clams were tasteless & a uniform small size. Were cooked quite well but too chewy without any sweetness. This may be a bad time of the season for fresh clams...More
