The fried dough up there is amazing. Its the best one at OOB. Always ask for sugar and cinnamon. They are fresh, tasty and healty. (Just kidding!!) For info, they are 3, 70$.

Hands down the best onion rings in OOB! It's a must stop every time we come to town. Piled high and super crisp! Highly recommend.

Pint of fried clams is reasonably priced, them and the hand cut fries were excellent. There was not a lot of places to sit down, but we were there off season & not at a meal time so there weren't a lot of people there.

every year when we visit OOB we have to stop here and get our fried clams. nothing special about this place, just another amusement park fast food joint but we love the clams. chuckled to myself when i saw on the menu, ''fried ding dong''. never got round to asking what a ding dong was.

Nothing real special, just typical amusement park food, however the French fries were pretty good, much better than pier French fries. Other than that nothing great but nothing bad.

Clams were ok. Nothing amazing. Seriously though the girls who work here really believe that they are doing you a favor by taking your order.

I was expecting amazing "pier fries" and fried clams. The fries were soggy and the clams were ok, just ok. The best part was the coleslaw.

I can only comment on the onion rings because that's all I've ever tried from here...but they are so good I get them every trip!! Fresh, crispy, not greasy. Good value.

We have been going here for years. The fried clams have always been hit or miss. This year we went and the clams were ok but pricey. The fried scallops we ordered were sliced thin and were terrible. We ordered clam chowder also and it was cold. We will find a new place next year for fried
