In spring, a young hound's fancy turns to thoughts of fried seafood, and Bob Lobster has a dab hand at the fryer. Pat Hammond says, "The clams weren't big, but they were fresh tasting and tender. The breading was crisp with no greasiness at all; the oil must have been nice and clean." The tartar sauce was nice, too. Fried shrimp were "perfectly cooked" with the same crispy breading.
The place is casual; step up to the counter to put in your order and take a seat outside to wait for the food to be brought out. Drinks, ice cream, and fresh seafood are for sale inside as well.
