“Best clams!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Looks like a little hole in the wall in Dartmouth- and they really lack seating- but the clams are awesome

“Great Food!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Love the homey atmosphere and good clams and chips. Fish and chips are also very good. Can be a little crowded at times, but well worth the wait.

Greasy diner look to it but you can't beat the deep fried clams, nor the haddock tips or pretty much anything else deep friend there!
