“the taste of the sea”

Ask any Kennebunkport local for signs of summer, and it's likely The Clam Shack's opening will be among the top of the list. Combine the sight of fresh white paint with the scent of salty deep frying delicacies and the sound of marauding seagulls, and summer's upon you. Perched at the bridge over the Kennebunk River, the Clam Shack provides a classic visual welcome to visitors. The tiny, immaculate fish shack serves award winning fried food, traditional boiled lobster dinners and lobster rolls served on freshly baked buns from a local bakery. A fresh lemonade stand and, for the truly indulgent, fried dough, are additional temptations.
