I am almost reluctant to tell about Butlers Flat; 86 Orchard Beach Blvd; Manorhaven because I don't want it to get to crowded. It's a pop-up clam shack open only until 9/30. Unlike most places on the water this has seafood as good as the view. You can get REAL FRIED CLAMS, lobster roll, scallops, steamed lobster...all very good. They come with french fries and coleslaw. You belly up to the counter, order, and sip a glass of wine (served in a plastic glass) while you wait. You can bring your own if you'd like.
The view is great. It's all outdoors so you have to go on a nice day. Manorhaven is part of Port Washington...in case you never heard of it. I guarantee you'll enjoy. Owner is a charming man from New Bedford, Ma. and heknows seafood.
