The decor includes clean ketchup bottles and paper napkin dispensers. This is casual eating and drinking for all ages. Hot dogs and BLT sandwiches are just $2.95. Add fat, crispy fries for another $4. Fried seafood is fresh and perfectly battered. I love the old-fashioned chef's salad and my lunch buddy always chooses the burger club. Yummy and consistent. The waitresses are always friendly, helpful and efficient. Excellent cocktails too at prices so low I do not even want to type them.

Can't miss with a stop in here. A local place with a sporty atmosphere but not rowdy. A wait is well worth it - generally quick turnover. Fancier places in town but none with just plain dependable good food at very reasonable prices. Nice selection of draft beer. Make sure you check out the 'specials' - I wish some were always on the menu. Don't let the parking lot turn you off - you will find a space.

We're from Ipswich, the epicenter of the clam highway, Rte 133, in Essex county, Massachusetts. We know about clams and have made extensive comparisons of all the clam restaurants in our area. We were stunned by the quality of the clam and the perfection with which they were cooked. Additionally, the chowder is a 9.5 our of 10...thick, creamy, very meaty and filled with potato and other desirables. You won't go for the ambiance if you're looking for a romantic evening of clam consumption. You will not, however, be disappointed if you are a discerning fried clam afficionado.

We stopped in for lunch. I love the basic BLT. Can't go wrong there. They have the best French fries here. Good service. They know everyone.
