Great local seafood! Always tasty dishes that never disappoint. Clams, tuna, crab, fish, fried or broiled. Busy during summer but being local we get to enjoy year round. Definitely a local favorite!

Calling all seafood lovers! All the food here at Allen's is amazingly tasty! The steamers are great and so are the clam strips and fried fish. There is a lot of the menu that is fried so be aware of that. I tend to lean more towards the platters to get the extra sides that come with it.

Inedible clam chowders- white was rank with thyme and red was ruined by old bay seasoning- bacon was RAW on scallop wrapped bacon Only edible was the burger

We go the Allen's Clam Bar at least one each summer for the past 10 years. Quaint atmosphere, but food is good, I don't think they take reservations. Very popular with the local folk. Mainly sea food some chicken, good soup.

I like Deviled Clams. Ever had them served in the shell, nicely baked or broiled ? Allen's version of Deviled clam, served in a metal tin, tasted exactly like Thanksgiving turkey stuffing, with a few bit's of tough, chewy clam thrown in. Which would have been fine in the third week of November. All stuffing, no taste of tender clam... More

Very good Broiled Seafood Combination. Diner was good, hot and plentiful. The place is well kept and clean. It is. BYOB type establishment. We have added this place to our favorites list and have been there a few times since January. Our experience is the food is always fresh, very good and nicely prepared.

Had lunch and was disappointed. The salads looked nice but had moldy lettuce. The crab cake plate for $12 had 1 crab cake. The bacon wrapped scallop appetizer had 5 scallops for$12 and were better if you took the bacon off. The french fries were good. Dont waste your time or money.
