“shoreline clam treats”

"This clam castle is in fact a clam shack, and we mean that in the nicest possible way. A breezy roadside eatery with a small dining room adjacent to the order windows and picnic tables set back from Route One, it has been a significant shoreline source of fried clams and clam chowder for decades.  The whole-belly fried clams are just right: plump, juicy and sweet with crust that is brittle but virtually melts on the tongue when you crunch into it. For those who like only a hint of clam flavor as part of the fried-food package, the Castle also offers clam strips. While not the bivalve connoisseur’s choice, these strips are in fact quite tasty … reminding us of the fried clams that originally helped make Howard Johnson’s famous.  There’s a full array of other fried seafood, as well as seafood salads for the fry-basket-frowner; but in our book the one non-fried thing to eat here is chowder. It’s a brisk, oceany brew typical of the southern New England shoreline, bright with clam flavor and ballasted by the starchy goodness of potatoes.  Service, of course, is eat-in-the-rough. Place your order and carry your own food to a chosen eating place. And please dispose of your plates and utensils when the meal is through." --http://roadfood.com/Restaurant/Review/1167-1167/clam-castle
