Clams at Belle Isle

Kip McSkipster | May 29, 2007 12:20 PM

Just visited Belle Isle Lobster & Seafood for lunch for the first time. For those of you who haven't been, this is a fish market that also has an extensive menu of fried, baked, grilled, and cajun seafood, also some stuff like burgers and chicken fingers.

I ordered the clam dinner, which was a plate piled high with clams (medium bellies, no bigs available), fries, onion rings, and slaw. The fry job was good, but greasy, the clams themselves were not so great - not sweet and a little too fishy. Onion rings were very good (again, greasy), fries and slaw were run-of-the-mill. The plate was $14.50.

Clams were several notches below the Clam Box for me; it might do in a pinch, but if you're the neighborhood looking for clams, I recommend Royal Roast Beef, right down the street. I'm thinking about going back for the lobster roll and/or pie, which have gotten some good reviews on this board (anyone tried them recently?).

There is very limited seating, maybe 7 stools at a counter. The location is on rte 145 (Saratoga St.) RIGHT by the Winthrop line, on a busy street but with some nice views of the water.
