Petey's in Rye, NH

My friend wants us to take her there for her birthday tomorrow.... her favorite chowdown place. Never been. I know its basically a clam shack but is there anything not to be missed on the menu?

        lobster update - went this past wednesday with hubby - twin lobsters for 12.99 -
        the clams were dynamite and the place was crowded for lunch - they have a new martini menu as well !

    1. Their clam chowder is my favorite, but that's so subjective...hard to be definite about chowder.

        LOVED, loved, loved Petey's. I had the best broiled haddock dish from a clam shack EVER! Came to the table piping hot. The creamy cole slaw side was delicious. We shared a huge side order of onion rings. All the fried food was crisp and dry. No grease! Sat @ a high top in the bar and had a nice ocean view. Waiter was fun and efficient. The drive along the coast and up through Newbridge , Strawberry Bank and Portsmouth afterward was great too. Had cappacuni and dessert @ Wentworth by the Sea bar/lounge. Awesome afternoon. :)
