Does anyone know where I can get New England Fried Clams (clams with bellies) in the Tampa Bay area? Thanks!

      Although it's been a couple years since I went there, there is a New England Seafood restaurant on Dale Mabry, south of Kennedy Blvd. As you go south it's on the right side of the street. Its name is Monstah Lobstah, The fried clams are wonderful and my wife loves their haddock.

        Just googled Monstah Lobstah since I'm going to be in the area and it said "they abruptly closed".

          I morn the passing of "Monstah Lobstah." They had excellent crab rolls.

        I'm not sure, but check the Casual Clam over in St. Pete. For some reason I think they may have them.

          There is a new seafood place across from Wiregrass in New Tampa (can't remember the name - Taste of Boston or something similar). They have em. They also have another location, but have not been there. I didn't try the clams. Chowder was pretty good though.
