We enjoyed a late lunch at the Happy Clam. We shared a huge Fish Taco plus Seafood Chowder and Biscuit. The food was tasty and the service fast. Good for a quick bite with nice views of the harbour.

If the locals eat here, it must be good. The fish cakes were hot and crispy, heavy on the potato. The chow — pickled green tomatoes — was delicious. Lots of other menu options, including burgers, chowder and lobster rolls. Lots of seating options. Nice...More
