The Shillelagh House is one of my stops when I come to town. I always get the whole fried clams. I don't know what happened. Not only were they mostly strips, the ones that were whole were very small. Lots of batter though! We ordered take out and part of the combo was missing. It was over $40.00 for two and definitely not worth the $. I see others commenting about how great the fish and chips are. Perhaps that's what they do best.
