Excellent grinders and a really delish seafood mac & cheese...but, look out...it has a bit of kick! I believe they are only open Wed-Sun. Minimal seating indoors and outdoors as it is really a take out place. But, grinders are great...shredded cabbage is an option...More

I'm staying in Putnam on business for a week, arriving the 27th.... Definitely want get food there Sunday afternoon when I get in... Do you have fresh whole belly clam dinners? Or just strips? Could not see a menu on line anywhere... Cant wait to eat there! Fried Clams, Steamers to eat there... and maybe a grinder to go!

They have steamers and whole clams most days. But I think they are closed on Sundays. A call to them would answer that.
