  1. I have been waiting/predicting the 50 dollar large fried clam order for two years now

    I say double it, "New England Large!" and charge 100 bucks. caveat emptor.

    There has never been a better time to hate fish.

    Leave 'em in the ocean.

    1. there is a red tide issue from newbury to gloucester, however, i have little doubt that part of this is dj simply gouging.

        The red tide ban was lifted for some areas (Ipswich) on June 19th, the rest on July 1st.

      2. thank goodness we have a choice of where we patronize.

        1. People bitch about the price of clams at this place every year. Stop going.

              Hey at least with the 50% wholesale increase this year, they are only raising prices 15% rather than 25% like last year!

          1. I had a monstrous plate of fried clams, scallops and shrimp at Dube's last night... The damage $22

              Dube's is excellent. If I lived next to DJ, I'd drive to Dube's and even with time and gasoline usage, I'd be ahead.
