I stopped for my first visit and ordered a bunch of stuff to go. The place is weathered but that doesn't bother me It has some atmosphere. I ordered fried fresh clams, fried shrimp, hot peal and eat shrimp, hush puppies, and onion rings. The onion rings were good, the fried clams were very good. The shrimp had a good... More

We went for the burgers and we weren't disappointed. They were quite large and tasty. We were full after eating our burgers but had to take home a piece of key lime cheesecake. What a great decision! So unique and flavorful.

It is served hot and steamy with the right amount of potatoes and clam pieces. I wanted to lick my bowl! Thanks Dan for your Southern hospitality. You can... More

The server was great, the food was great. We chose to sit outside overlooking the roadway and Clam Haven RV Park. Our friends from New England love the Whole Belly Clams they serve here.

Next up we both ordered a Lobster Roll. Each one is made with a whole cold water lobster direct from the Maine seacoast. Lobster is cooked... More
