The competition was decided in two ways: a judges’ vote and a popular vote, with separate distinctions given for each. In the end, the judges gave the nod to Ipswich Clambake while the masses decided that Kelly’s Roast Beef slung their favorite chowder.
Periwinkles of Essex garnered second place honors from both the judges and the populace. The Windward Grille was awarded third place by the popular vote. And what would Clamfest be without a mention of Woodman’s? The Essex seafood mainstay took home third prize from the judges.
