The Clam Box, one of the best places to get fried clams in the Boston metro area, still plans to open for the 2018 season today (March 2) if Mother Nature allows. A Nor’easter is bearing down on Massachusetts, and the road to The Clam Box is closed.
“Unfortunately with the weather today and Quincy Shore Drive being closed down, we will not be opening for lunch today,” The Clam Box posted on its Facebook page this morning. “We will try to open for dinner if weather improves and the road is reopened. We try to open the first Friday of March each year but the weather doesn’t always cooperate.”
Heavy rain and wind from the Nor’easter are causing massive flooding along the coastal areas.
When the waters recede, The Clam Box will serve fried whole-belly clams, clam strips, lobster rolls, and other New England seafood favorites 11 a.m.-8 p.m. daily. They’ll extend the hours when “the days get a little longer and the sun stays out a little longer,” according to a caption in a video announcing the season opening on The Clam Box’s Facebook page.
Other items include chicken, steak tips, burgers, ice cream, cold beer, and a large kid’s menu.
The Clam Box is located at 789 Quincy Shore Drive, on Wollaston Beach in Quincy (get directions).
