I stop for the fried clams every time I pass through the area. That is about fifty times. They are the best I have eaten in the area, including Cooke's and Baxter's in Hyannis. I haven't been to Ipswich for a long time, so I can't make that comparison.

We've driven by this place 100 times and never stopped, maybe due to the traffic. This past weekend we decided to give it a try. Our first impression was that the grounds were extremely clean and neat. Given this finding, we expected the food to be good and it was. We ordered fried clams with bellies and some clam chowder....

Stopped on way home and had Cicken Salad on roll that could have fed three and so fresh.another had strip dinner and finally a plate that wasn't all fries. Also delicious. And the onion rings were home made thin crispy ones that were great. I'd go here again in a minute. Try it out.

Stopped here on the way home. This place is a "go to" treat for us. Nothing fancy, just good food and very handy to those coming off the Cape and headed to Providence or beyond. Lots of lobster. Fries. Yeah, they charge for it, but it's pure comfort.

We stopped here on our way over to Cape Cod for the weekend and were quite hungry and ready for some great seafood - we were not disappointed! My fiancee had fish and chips while my mom and I split a fish sandwich and shrimp plate. Everything was so delicious and were fried to perfection. The sides (coleslaw and fries)... More

My friends and I stopped by on the way back from bike riding to eat. The Fried Shrimp Plate with fries was really good. The shrimps was crispy yet still moist. Fried Clam Roll (Bellies) and the Fried Chicken Finger Plate was another good dish. The Fried Scallop Plate was disappointed. The scallops wasn't crispy. While the food were good,... More

Usually don't stop at roadside stands but Seafood Shanty was highly recommended so we gave it a try and continue to eat there and thoroughly enjoy all we've ordered. Best and most generous portion of lobster in a roll we've ever eaten. Footlong hotdog is wonderful as are the fries and onion rings. A most stop to make heading to... More

I have been stopping by this location for a long time. It's right along the Cape Cod Canal with a great view. The food has always been pretty good. But on a recent stop I found the prices sky high and the quality and quantity slightly disappointing. Sadly not as good as last years visit. The place is very clean... More
