Great place, but plan to spend a while in line and then waiting for your number to be called. It's really good, but things take time in their small and very busy kitchen.

My mom brought me here to try the fresh seafood we got the platter whole clams,haddock, shrimp, scallops, onion rings and fries. Enough for 3 people and we had some left for a snack. If I ever come back will love to come back again.

Order at walkup window, then sit the outside picnic tables overlooking the picturesque bay and ocean. Keep in mind there are limited tables. Fried Seafood is in a light, tasty batter. The French Fries are awesome as well as the coleslaw. Reasonably priced and extensive menu.

We had visited several NE states and had a hard time finding clam strips instead of whole belly clams. The Clam Shack has the best clam strips any of us have ever eaten. The cole slaw and tartar sauce were delicious too. Portions were generous and the price was very reasonable. Our only regret is that we leave tomorrow and won’t have time to eat there again.
We also had delightful conversation with two of the younger family members whose family owns The Clam Shack
A must go there iif in Salem!!

The Clam Shack is a seasonal out door restaurant. They have the best fried seafood around. The lobster rolls are fantastic and very reasonable priced. Right now the price is 15.95. Outdoor seating is available at picnic tables. Whether you need shade or the ocean breeze they have both. I might add the staff is friendly and upbeat every time we visit, and that is tough to do in a hot kitchen full of fryolators. We even tried a burger for those land lubbers. It was delicious without the $15.00 downtown price tag. Get off the beaten path and hop on down to the Willows and visit the clam check. You won’t be disappointed.
