Type: Seafood Special features: Fabulous dives Price range: $$ (Moderate) Description:

This landmark clam shack has been serving up seafood since 1939 along a distinctly unmaritime stretch of Sunrise Highway. The kitchen is a breading station, a grill and a couple of fryolators; the dining room, a curved counter with 30 stools. The main attraction here is fried Ipswich clams; that is, soft-shell clams with the bellies still attached. Cash only.
