The Bite

Updated 12/23/2013

Fodor's Review

Fried everything—clams, fish-and-chips, you name it—is on the menu at this simple, roadside shack, where two outdoor picnic tables are the only seating choices and small, medium, and large are the three portion sizes: all of them are perfect if you're craving that classic seaside fried lunch. But don't come on a rainy day, unless you want to get wet—the lines here can be long.

Good Eats at The Bite

Delicious-ness! We were looking for the quintesscential roadside seafood shack and found it at the Bite! Delicious fresh fried fish and the best skinny french fries anywhere! Eat at the picnic tables next to the shack or take it to the beach or the wharf.

Tourist Trap

The prices at this establishment are ridiculous and it's obvious the proprietors work hard to take advantage of the tourists at this "seasonal" place. The seafood isn't bad, but it's not great. It was very greasy and the fries were hard. A medium sized pint of fried clams is $15.00 and a large is $32.00. Although the service was fast, I wouldn't eat here again.
