Best of Boston

2007 BEST Clam Shack, Nantucket

Sayle’s Seafood

If it’s true that everything good is better fried, you plain can’t lose at Sayle’s. Diners choose from tasty fresh quahogs, steamers, and lobsters, and even tastier fried clams, scallops, shrimp, calamari, and (for the odd landlubber) chicken. The venerable shack also offers a $35-a-head clambake with corn, potatoes, a half pound each of steamers and mussels, a whole lobster, and a bucket of chowder big enough to float back to Hyannis in.
