The Clam Box

A trip to Ipswich, MA meant the wife and I had to go to the Clam Box. It is a typical New England seafood shack. Fried seafood – scallops, clams, fish, etc. Also lobster rolls and some other favorites.

We got there just before noon on a Saturday. Not only that but it was a lovely summer day. Luckily we did not find to much of a crowd. We got in, ordered our food within about ten minutes, and were eating about five minutes later.

The food was great. We had a three way combo. Scallops, shrimp and clams. All batter dipped and fried. This stuff was served on a bed of onion rings. My drink of choice was  lemonade while the wife had an iced tea.

One of the many cool thing about the place was its age. The Clam Box has existed since 1935. That is a long time for any food establishment to be in business.

Late in the day we drove back past the place and the line was a lot longer!
