Clams On Long Island

BillL Jun 15, 1999 08:22 AM

Where do all of you like to go for steamers and clams
on the half shell? I am looking for the ultimate place
on Long Island to go for these items. Unless the place
is unbelievable I won't make it out to the South Fork
as I don't have the whole weekend to drive through the
traffic. Thanks in advance !!!!

    I live in Lindenhurst and know of two good low priced
    fresh seafood places-both located on Montauk hwy-both also double as seafood markets so all the seafood is fresh-Southside fish and clam restaurant(for fried)and the B&B fish market(for broiled)-both offer clams and oysters on the halfshell-I like the cajun shrimp or fried shrimp over pasta at Southside and sea scallops at B&B-Both places are in the $7-$10 range so I can't promise you the world but both have fresh solid seafood at a reasonable price-hope you enjoy

      So try the North Fork. Claudio's in Greeport is a
      good bet if you're willing to make the drive.

        Thanks for the tip. Those of us that live in Nassau
        find a trip to the East End a treat, but without having
        a place to stay out there, it's not the norm. I am
        hoping to hear of places in Nassau and Western &
        Central Suffolk. I had heard of a place in Blue Point
        (I think, maybe Bellport) that was a stand and had
        great clams. Anyone know of this place? Thanks!!!

          Have you ever been to Bigelows in Rockville Centre?
          They just opened a new place in Deer Park also.
