Any recs for fried clams in Bar Harbor?

  • 2

My husband and I will be heading to Maine next week. We will be spending 2 nights in Ogunquit followed by 3 nights in Bar Harbor. It has been a full year since I had amazingly good fried whole belly clams (Arnold's in Cape Cod if you must know). Is there anywhere in Bar Harbor that has good fried clams, or should i get my fill in the Ogunquit/ Wells area?

  1. I find that on MDI the price for fried clams is high and the portion small. As I used to work 37 steps from The Thirsty Whale at Coastal Kayaking, we'd often get them after work; the app. plate is/was $10.95.
    Jordan's Snack Bar in Ellsworth has good quality clams and is BYOB. It is only 1/2 mile out of you way on Rt. 1 N. The Bagaduce Lunch in Brooksville, Ruth & Wimpey's in Hancock and Tracey's in Sullivan, all serve fried clams.
