    S&S Lobster in Fitchburg and Bradford Seafood in Haverhill are the best fried sea foods I have  had.
    The service is excellent .
    I have eaten at most of the places listed and a lot of the places listed by the posters. Nothing compares ...of course you are not eating with a view of the salt marsh
     The places I recommend are not only better but priced right.

     You can't miss at Bob's Famous Fried Clams in Salem Ma. They are great, and where else to you get an all day special clam plate for under 10.00. His clams are the best around bar none. You have to check this place out

    Moby Dick's in Wellfleet, MA, although it can get overrun. Nice atmosphere and surroundings and it's on the way to the Wellfleet drive-in movie theater.

    Give the Village in Essex its due!  Everything they serve is delicious and their staff is wonderful.  I make the journey from Maryland to the North Shore once a summer, and I ALWAYS make time to go there.

    Fried Calamari Fan?

    Clam Box the best, Tony's in Quincy OK.  Believe it or not though, the Olympian Diner in Braintree, Square has some darn nice calamari.  Sweet, battered just right, not greasy.

    Worth a trip.

    Go no futher that Barlows on Rte 6 in Bournedale MA on the edge of the canal.  Skip and his wife Dainne come from many generations of Bourne shell and fin fisherman.  They make only the best clams and food.  Don't forget their wicked onion rings.   They both are my good friends but I love clams and they dont get any better!

    Hands down, it's the Clam Box in Ipswich.  There is no comparison between it and Woodman's.  There's a reason why so many people are willing to stand in line at the Clam Box.

    Bob's Clam Hut in Kittery, Me. is number 1 -- but a surprising 2nd is Windjammers in Rochester, NH.

    the clam shack in falmouth is excellent , but it should be pointed out that it is adjacent to Falmouth Harbor, not  Woods Hole. Woods Hole is 3 or 4 miles from this spot, it  is actually about a half a mile from downtown Falmouth

    [Quote]The best clam cakes are at Huot's in Camp Ellis in Saco, Maine.  I know you didn't ask about Maine places, but Southern Maine has become pretty much a  suburb of Boston so we should count.:)[/Quote]

    You mention Maine, and in all the posts (and the original article for that matter) that I've read, I've seen nothing mentioning The Lobster Shack in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.  It's right by the Twin Lights.  AWESOME fried clams.  AWESOME location.  AWESOME atmosphere.  I'm craving some of their fried clams right now.

    Now that I've read many more posts, I did see several mentions of The Lobster Shack in Cape Elizabeth, ME.  I'm glad I'm not alone on this.  :)

    Of all the clam shacks in Essex, Farnham's is the best - hands down.  Their batter is light and the oil is FRESH.  Woodman's is just dreadful - heavy and greasy......


    To the poster who recommended Bettys A1A: My mom lives in Ormond-by-the-Sea and I've never heard of it!  Will have to check it out  on my next visit.


    For out of state restaurants,  check out "Boston's" in New Smyrna Beach, FL.  Their seafood is shipped from up here daily and the clams and shrimp are just as good as any seafood place around here.
