If you need to drive up to a typical clam shack this is for you. There are picnic tables and indoor eating as well.

Very convenient location right off Post Rd. Just a few minutes the Charlestown beaches. Ordered their famous dozen clam cakes to go for $12..Very delicious, tasty and fresh hot clam cakes. I called ahead and my order was ready in 10 minutes. They offer casual family oriented dine-in or beautiful outside shaded picnic table seating. Always a family favorite. Ample... More

This greasy spoon seafood joint serves up good enough clam cakes, hamburgers and other regional fried seafood at higher then greasy spoon prices. The service is good, and the outside dining would be much more enjoyable if the music was turned down a decimal or two. An example of some of the higher prices would be a dozen clam cakes... More

I want to like The Hitching Post. It looks like it's locally owned, certainly independent, and a little bit old school. But how long do they think they can serve a paper cup of fried breaded balls of nothing and call it "fried clam strips"? Don't they realize people will come there only once, get burned, and never come back?

Stopped here for a bite to eat but have to say the food has gone down hill- fries were so bad did not even eat them- clam strips not that great also! The only positive is they have s beautiful garden on their property you can sit and eat and enjoy!

Driving by, you might not think this little building has the quality of seafood that it does. The lobster rolls were amazing, clam fritters tasty little buggers (get a dipping sauce), and their Rhode Island chowder is delicious. The people who work there are also super friendly.

These were probably the worst fried clams I have ever had. Greasy, overcooked and tasteless - they were so bad that when I tried to give them to my clam-obsessed dog, even she turned her nose up at them. If you want really good fried clams, do what the locals do: drive inland for 10 minutes and order the clams... More
