Best of Boston

2007 Best Clam Shack, Cape Cod

Captain Frosty’s

Abandon all hope of squeezing into that teeny bikini after a feast at Captain Frosty’s, the pocket-size clam shack that’s been plying Mayflower and Corporation beachgoers and their overtaxed arteries with fried seafood of every strip—clams, scallops, oysters, shrimp—for more than 30 years. Hungry bathers who are reluctant to watch their love handles grow in real time can don their street clothes and dine at the shack’s indoor tables or brick-patio benches.
