Jumbo 6 oz Lobster Roll

THE BEST LOBSTER ROLL IN CONNECTICUT!! There's so much lobster, just enough bun and butter. Seriously, I've tried so many lobster rolls but The Clam Castle is my go to place. The hour long drive to get there is 100% worth it. Every time.

Golden Fried Whole Belly Clams

These are the best whole belly fried clams I have ever had! They are consistent every time. Plump & juicy in a delicate batter that truly compliments the clams. And to pair them with the Onion Strings is a must!

Jumbo 6 oz Lobster Roll

Hello fellow readers! My name is Kelly and my husband (Markus) and I have been coming to the Clam Castle together for the better part of 25 years and even came with our parents before that! Mark and I have made it a yearly special event to jump on our motorcycle and take the 40 minute cruise from Wallingford to Hammonasset Beach State Park at the beginning of each season. The Clam Castle is so much more than an amazing restaurant. For us, this place represents a very special place and brings back so many good memories...and allows us every year to look forward in making new ones. The Clam Castle has been the center in creating and sharing some of the most beautiful, romantic and dearest memories and events in our lives. From the time we first started dating, sharing the announcement of my pregnancy for each of our three sons, many wedding anniversaries, my birthday, which is on August 7th, and so many more that the list would go on and on. We also share in celebrating every July, as it marks another year since I was diagnosed, treated and beat Luykimia. I guess to wrap all of this up, The Clam Castle is not just a great restaurant with amazing seafood and dinners is a magical place filled with summertime memories. It's a place where the staff treat you like a friend, the food is always spot on, fresh and delicious. The ambiance takes you back to a simpler time of life whether you choose to sit inside or outside. I encourage everyone to just take one day and visit The Clam Castle. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed! And here's a little tip.. if you choose to take your dinner to go, don't forget to drive down the street and enjoy your dinner on the beach while watching the sunset! It doesn't get more romantic than that! Happy Summer and Happy Dining! 🏖️

Golden Fried Shrimp

Can't wait for the Clam Castle to open during Spring 2021, so we can make our road trip from Bristol, CT to have the Golden Fried Shrimp Platter. The shrimp are the largest and tastiest I have ever had (I've eaten a lot of shrimp and no one compares), and I would highly recommend them to anyone who loves fried shrimp. Worth the trip from anywhere. The staff is also always very friendly and helpful.

Scallop Roll

TRY THE BLACKENED SCALLOP ROLL!! I am a lover of all things seafood and good PERFECTLY cooked scallop dishes are sometimes hard to come across and blackened scallops are almost impossible to find. I tried the blackened scallop roll towards the end of the season(with the extra yummy lobster bisque) and I have not stopping thinking about it since!! I CAN NOT WAIT to go back and get another one when the castle opens back up. I have also tried the blackened shrimp tacos (another meal to die for) and the juicy tender clam strips, a summer staple!!! My mouth is watering right now. Spacious comfortable seating, happy smiling service and BYOB.. definitely the atmosphere I want on a beautiful sunny day! My boyfriend had the lobster roll and said it was also EXCELLENT!! I promise you will eat like ROYALTY when you visit the amazing CLAM CASTLE!!! Don't pass it up if you're in the area :)
