OUR WORLD FAMOUS CHOWDER AND BISQUE
Our chowders are made fresh daily from the finest ingredients available -such as extremely fresh clams from the same New England vendor for over 70 years! New England is white and creamy. Manhattan is red and brothy. Both are delicious. Cup: to stay only! Quart: to go only! (It would look strange eating it here anyway)

FROM OUR FAMOUS FRY HOUSE
Our extremely fresh clams are famous for a reason. First, we start with extremely fresh product, then we fry it in trans-fat free, cholesterol free, oil. We change the oil daily. That's how serious we are about serving you only the best. Delicious. Served with one (1) choice of the following: our fresh cut fries; cole slaw; lettuce and tomato salad. No substitutions please!
