Clam Box of Ipswich Restaurant Review

: This iconic spot, with its distinctive shape of an open take-out container for fried clams, has been serving fried seafood in every form to the masses for decades. The key is simplicity: it has chosen one thing and does it better than almost anyone else, namely whole-bellied clams. Of course, they come with all the fixings like fries, onion rings and slaw --- all prepared just so and presented without pretense. Portions are intimidating, and regulars know that a mini-meal of fried shrimp, scallops or oysters, served with a choice of a side, is more than enough fried goodness. An added bonus: the burger, lobster roll, and haddock filet sandwich are all quite good, too, if someone in your group isn't a clam lover.
