We’re old fashioned. We’ve always thought of lobster as the main attraction at a clambake. And you already know this: sweet, succulent, fresh-from-the-sea lobster are our specialty.
But over the years, we’ve evolved. Don’t get us wrong: we’re still lobster freaks. But we’ve come to appreciate the power of a great cocktail hour.
While you are busy greeting your guests, or off getting your wedding photos taken, it’s important to offer something for people to snack on. And it’s hard to go wrong with a rawbar. We favor succulent Barnstable Harbor oysters and littlenecks, freshly shucked, along with a few perfectly cooked chilled shrimp. Nice big ones really are the best. With our delicious cocktail sauce, of course.
Did you know we do lots of other appetizers, too? They’re all freshly made and flavorful, perfect for keeping guests happy as they mingle and catch up with friends. From cheese platters with fresh fruit to scallops wrapped in bacon, you’ll find your favorites on our raw bar and appetizers menu.
If you’d like to do something a little different, but still feature our fabulous shellfish, here’s a recipe that gets raves every time we do it: first we marinate fresh oysters, clams, and shrimp in a little garlic butter, then we put them on the grill. They all come out juicy, tender, and just fantastic this way.
So, yes, to lobsters. Absolutely. People love them. And we do them up right. But while our cooks work on the main course we just want you to know: we’re all about the apps.
