Our nephew moved to Quincy and found this restaurant on the side of the ocean. He took us there to eat lobster roll. It is a little expensive but the portions are big. Food was excellent. There was a live band right across the street on the boardwalk. So we got to listen to some nice music. I would recommend... More

This place is great in summer. There is usually a bit of a line depending on what time you go. Plenty of seating indoor and outside. The portions are quite large. They have the biggest lobster roll that I have seen (it does cost $22 though!). Definitely a place to check out and enjoy.

Clams are a must here, though lobster rolls looked big and tasty. Prices are a little high, but you can eat inside in the AC as well as have a few drinks. It was my first visit here and I will definitely go back.

Fantastic food and everyone was very helpful. Great job! Seats out side are awesome and parking seemed easy. You can walk the meal along the beach.

I had the day off and came here for a lobster roll, onion rings, and a raspberry lime Rickey (total price $34.00) for lunch! The food is great but expect to spend some cash😎

Fantastic food! Classic fried fish and other seafood dishes. Huge portions and decent prices!! Toughest part is deciding what to order and snatching a table..Service is friendly and welcoming despite the line cook method. Definitely a stop for fish and chips or a lobster roll!!

We came here after a whole day of touring at Plymouth plantation and Mayflower. We got their famous lobster roll, fried oysters, fried whole clams, steamed clams, a broiled seafood plate, and clam chowders. Our eyes were of course much bigger than our mouth/tummy and got way too much food. Everything was wonderful and yummy. Loved the casual environment. It... More

Friendly staff. Hectic and crowded but an active bus person helped us find a table under an umbrella outside overlooking Wollaston Beach across the street. Whole fried clams is the best item on the menu. The chicken kabob was perfect too. A little expensive but worth it for an iconic clam shack.

Thank B C
