Lobster and steamers were good, fried clams not so much. This is a very large, very busy tourist restaurant which feeds hundreds or thousands of people a day. With that in mind, it’s pretty OK. Will try other spots on our next trip, but I would return here in a pinch.

The Clambake Restaurant is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. The restaurant is always busy but crowds are waited on quickly. The lines moved with ease. The portions are large and can be shared.

Unique feature is nice display of large stuffed North American game animals. Seafood, ordered up front and picked up when number called is consistently good and ample. Back room booths face piocturesque swamp well populatedd with gulls and more. Closed in winter

My family and I have been going to the clambake since the early 70s. We really noticed this year the decline in the service level that you received when you place your order to the cleanliness of the dining area and the portions of the food.
Might I suggest to the management to step back and look at how they were and try to bring that back.

The Clambake is a classic New England Clam Shack-Type restaurant. Locals, as well as frequent tourists, know it well. Excellent fried clams, scallops, haddock, shrimp, combo dinners, onion rings, etc. Great beverages of all types. It's gotten a little pricey, as have most places that serve fresh seafood in Maine during the summer, but it's well worth it. Open from about May through October, the parking lot is always full. Sometimes there can be a significant wait, but this is an order number and pick-up kind of a place, so there's no real wait-staff. I live in Portland, but travel down to OOB a couple times during the summer; particularly for the clams and the scallops. Nothing earth-shattering here, just good fresh seafood that you can take out or eat in peace in their spacious dining rooms.
