    Martin's Drive-in, Rochester, NH -- Delicious clam rolls and the BEST onion rings in the universe (have eaten many onion rings in 50 years and none come close to Martin's).  It is a little hideaway but worth a visit!!!!
    Martins Drive-In Restaurant
    125 Old Milton Rd
    Rochester, NH, 03839
    603-332-1302

    Martin's Drive-in was previously known as Earl's Drive-in
    when it opened in the 1950s. It is well-known for its clam roll and onion rings.

    Even though the trip is far, Sayle's Seafood on Nantucket, is well worth it.  All their seafood is fantastic!

    Error correction:

    The Lobster Shanty in Salem, MA is located at 25 Front St. (not 15) and that web link is from previous ownership.  The up to date site is here.

    Cheers!

    [QUOTE]McCrays II  in Tiverton, RI. The best kept secret in New England. The first McCrays Clam Shack closed in the 80's I think. It was across the street from Lincoln Park in Dartmouth and nobody I know can understand why it closed...it always seemed to be packed. It dissappeared for about 20 years and from what I understand a former worker has the famous recipe and opened up McCrays II a few years ago in Tiverton.  It's a hole in the wall kind of dumpy looking plaza but the clams are great.

    [QUOTE]Woodman's  on the North  Shore is by far the best.  Depending on when  you  decide to  go  and indulge in the fried clams the line can be down the  street  but the wait is worth for the most sweetest clams  you will ever eat.  My husband and  I  will be going there to celebrate our 35th wedding  anniversary on  June 29th ( anniversary is the 30th).  We have been going there since  the  1970's...Yum Yum Yum.  They also  have great cole slaw....
    Posted by Sophie08[/QUOTE] My husband loved Woodmans, we had been going there for years, even before they renovated the place.  In our younger days we would get a group of people together and have a good time.  Congrats on your wedding anniversary and enjoy.  My wedding anniversary was also June 30th, we made it to 35 years before he went on his journey to the sky.  Have some extra coleslaw for me.

    Tony's clam shack is by far the best.  I travel to Maine at least twice a month, stopping at clam spots along the way.  There is no comparison to Tony's.

    Champlin's in Gallilee, down by Salty Brine Beach has awesome seafood! The clams are great, always fresh and not greasy and they are very generous and reasonable. You can sit out on the deck and see the ocean.

    If you are in the Central Mass area, try Kay's in Westminster...

    Not as good as the ones in Ipswich, Essex, but not bad
