Nothing fancy but the food. It is self-service and you actually watch them prepare the clams in front of you..Unique approach. (Closed in winter) check site for details. Worth the effort! They also have an ice cream shop next to it....

Hadn’t been to Ronnie’s in a couple of years. Always loved this place as a kid! It is not as good as it used to be. The clam chowder used to be so good, thick and full of clams, not anymore, it was super thin...More

Somewhat confusing: the ice cream and seafood places are actually separate buildings. You enter seafood place in one door and order as there is no table service. Be sure to bring cash as no credit (there is an ATM in place you can sit down...More

Stopped with husband and sister-in-law and we all totally enjoyed our meals. Clam chowder, clam cakes, clam strips and my lobster roll were wonderful. We have nothing comparable in our area.

This old fashioned roadside fried seafood and ice cream place has been around forever. A must order are the fried clams. The fish and chips is also excellent. Best deal might be the frappe. Very tasty and very inexpensive. They also have another building that...More

If you don't stop here on your way through Auburn, MA you're really missing out on some of the best seafood in Mass. The fried clams and fish and chips are to die for, and worth the wait in the usually long line. Cash only.

I've been going to Ronnie's for who knows how many years? I used to go a lot, but moved away years ago, and now only go when I'm in the area. The food is pretty good and better than many. The eating area could use...More

One of the best menu items to try is the Seafood Platter. A delicious combination of Scallops, Shrimp, Clams, Haddock, Clam Fritters, Onion Rings, and French Fries. Very large portion of food. The batter was crisp and crunchy, with soft juicy fish in the middle....More

They may have some gluten free food but they are only open in the summer and are famous for seafood fries and burgers. Also ice cream. I have never ask for gluten free.
