Our Summary Review

This "shack"-style Essex "classic" "allegedly invented" the fried clam – and though you "can't go wrong" with them here, it's a "go-to" for "generous portions" of any kind of seafood, including "excellent" lobster (in rolls and in the rough); loyalists shrug off the "tour-bus" crowds that "snake down the street", self-service and tabs that can seem "pricey", considering it's just plastic plates and such.
