We went to Costello’s Clam shack on Sunday July 18, 2010. Never been there before and NEVER will again !! We wanted a side order of Whole Belly Fried Clams and a side order of Fried Oysters and 2 cups of Clam Chowder. They said we don’t sell side orders of Clams and we don’t have Oysters, all we have are dinners. Hmmm we don’t sell side orders? Well you do have to put Clams in with the French Fries right? You just don’t cook them together. So why not sell side orders? So we decided to get 2 dinners of Clams and 2 cups of Chowder. What a mistake that was !! Got back to the car and opened up the chowder and started to eat it, it was more like onion soup with 3 or 4 pieces of clams in it. Next we opened up the clam dinners and said where are the clams? It was about 80% skinny little French fries and 20% whole fried clams. The bellies on the clams were so small they looked like clams suffering from anorexia. This so-called food cost $45.47 and you go away hungry or tired of eating mostly French fries, glad we had our Yellow Lab who loves French fries with us. How do the owner’s sleep at night knowing how they rip people off. The other reviewers liked the view and the atmosphere ha-ha your paying for it. Just go to Mystic, Stonington and so on, you see boats, water, and seagulls. Just get your side orders elsewhere and park near the water and eat, and the view is free.
