“Yummy Find”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

My son loved the fish shaped sandwich. Clam strips were fresh and well cooked. The Lobster Bisque was wonderful! Very creamy without being heavy.

“a hidden gem”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

A really cute clam shack tucked in the Brown University med school complex. A bit walk from downtown area (~15min) but not bad at all. Extremely clean, nice decor, fast service. The food is great! clam chowder and lobster bisque are great! Even the cup is too big for one person. The lobster roll is great for the price. Not too much mayonnaise, just enough to keep everything together. The toasted bun was very tasty too. Very good value for the money! So jealous about people who can just walk down here for the guilty pleasure!

“Good little clam shack”
Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

I ordered the lobster roll and it was okay. Too much mayo, but the clam cakes were really good. Not too bad for a clan shack in Providence.

“Go for the chowder.”
Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

We tried both n.e.clam chowder and the red and we both found them tasty with nice consistency. Clam cakes were too dry . Fish taco wrap was tasty. French fries and cole slaw were good. My traditional lobster roll was disappointing . It appeared more like pink tuna fish salad with a claw sticking out. Prices were quite reasonable. Quick service. Clean atmosphere.
