We go the Allen's Clam Bar at least one each summer for the past 10 years. Quaint atmosphere, but food is good, I don't think they take reservations. Very popular with the local folk. Mainly sea food some chicken, good soup.

I like Deviled Clams. Ever had them served in the shell, nicely baked or broiled ? Allen's version of Deviled clam, served in a metal tin, tasted exactly like Thanksgiving turkey stuffing, with a few bit's of tough, chewy clam thrown in. Which would have been fine in the third week of November. All stuffing, no taste of tender clam... More

Very good Broiled Seafood Combination. Diner was good, hot and plentiful. The place is well kept and clean. It is. BYOB type establishment. We have added this place to our favorites list and have been there a few times since January. Our experience is the food is always fresh, very good and nicely prepared.

Had lunch and was disappointed. The salads looked nice but had moldy lettuce. The crab cake plate for $12 had 1 crab cake. The bacon wrapped scallop appetizer had 5 scallops for$12 and were better if you took the bacon off. The french fries were good. Dont waste your time or money.

I thought this place was average at best, Food is served on paper plates which for the price I thought was a bit tacky. I had a fried seafood combo and it wasn't anything different from what you can get in a diner. It is a casual setting however and kind of quaint. Just not much bang for your buck.
