Passing by, on an exploring trip to Charlestown Beach, I noticed the small shack on the right, just about reaching the end of the road to the beach. By itself it looked interesting, plus you can park there (for the beach) at half the cost....More

I had the clam bellies. The fry was good, but the portion was so small that I was hungry after an hour. Also, they have outdoor seating, but no bathroom. I bet that gets awkward.

Leaving in Charlestown this is my place to go. As soon as it opens I'll get a dozen of clam cakes. Calamari are very good. In summer you can sit outside overview the marina and Ninnigret pond. Great place for family.

It's a clam shack, but it's has some of the best clam chowder around (New England style). Very convenient to the Charlestown Town Beach-but don't be in a hurry to hear your number called!
