Best of Boston

2006 Best Clam Shack, Nantucket

Sayle’s Seafood

No bivalve hut worth its sea salt is pretentious. So don’t expect glamour when you push through the swinging screen door. At $35 per person, the Clambak—a bucket of thick chowder, a half pound each of steamers and mussels, corn, potatoes, a whole lobster, and melted butter (optional, and just as well, since everything tastes ridiculously good as-is)—is one of the sweetest bargains going.
