Clams / lobster rolls in Salem, Peabody area?

  • l

Any suggestions for fried clams and/or lobster rolls in the Salem/Peabody area or en route from the airport? I've noted Dubee's and Bob's from prior posts - are those for fried clams only or do they also serve lobster rolls?

  1. Check the slew of "fried clams" posts already here -- Essex/Ipswich: Clam Box, Farnham's, etc. For lobster rolls, gas up the car and go to Maine.

      Yep! Exactly right.

      For the lobster roll: Bob's in Kittery, The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport...

      And that's just for starters, headin' downeast!


    2. The best seafood in the Peabody/Salem area is the Sea Witch, Rt.1 S. in Peabody...I've never had their fried clams, but their fried oysters are great, and their steamers are the best around, and they grew out of, and are connected to, a fish market, so go from there....I always see Asian families in there for the lobster dinners...To me, this is the highest recommendation...
