I never knew this place existed before but saw it out of the corner of my eye while passing by one day. Last night was our first visit. Best French Fries ever! I don't care if they're frozen, they were good. Sadly, I can't tolerate the fried foods much anymore but for those that can, this place offers lots of... More

Got white chowder at Tommy's Clam Shack to go. The nice gentleman at the window asked it we were taking it to the beach and we said. "Yes." He said "You can't have chowder without clam cakes!" So he gave us a 1/2 dozen clam cakes for free!!!! So nice and unexpected. It was our first time there and we... More

Red chowder and clam cakes were great and reminded me of the good old days at the Shore Dinner Hall. Better than Iggys and far better than the new Rocky Point Clam Shack on Post Rd. Will be back to try whole belly clams. Stay tuned.

Everything seemed okay, but I did notice that the oil was not drained out of the food very well. Not sure if this was the problem... More

We were looking for authentic New England seafood shack food. The atmosphere looked perfect, a busy stand with picnic tables (shaded) outdoors. Diners had baskets heaped with shrimp and clams. Hubby ordered the trio, a half lobster roll, clam cakes and clam chowder. (Clear RI style). I got the clam roll.The portions were generous but the fried clams disappointingly bland... More
