Hello hounds.

Quick last minute request for advice.

I have decided that on a hot, sultry summer evening such as tonight I would enjoy a big bowl o' steamers, lobstah, and delicious onion rings/fries, chowder....
vs going to the gym and working out in a stuffy room.
(Though I would probably feel better after my gym workout!!) ;)

That being said, where should we go? My friend wants to go to Woodman's..but I hear lots of mixed reviews from you guys on this. My first instinct was Essex Seafood, but recently I've read some good stuff on the board re: The Clam Box.

Ideally I'd like a place that has good food, isn't too touristy, maybe even some picnic tables and the smell (and even better, a view) of the ocean. Good value is always a plus too! I am open to all suggestions, but I'm only around for another hour so please, please, let me know what you think.

Pros/Cons of each place would be great, but ideally I'm just looking for the best all around choice..thanks!
