Clam Shack is an overstatement but a casual setting is just what makes it so appealing on a summer or early fall. Located right on the water in the heart of Warren, with a shelled drive and tent coverings for guests, it is the ideal spot for eating with friends and family. If you like seafood in the rough, there... More

Freshest seafood right off the boat in a beautiful bayside setting. Picnic table seating in the sun or under large tent. Live Acoustic guitar and vocal music add to the outdoor summer vibe. It's a summer favorite for locals.

This is a great casual place to have supper by the water. Easy ordering with a short wait in line to order, Seating is picnic style under a tarp cover. The food is very good and the atmosphere, while casual is great and friendly. The sunsets over the water are a major bonus!

I went with my mother in law. She loves this place. We both had the lobster rolls and and we shared an order of clam strips and some onion rings. The lobster rolls are good value with a lot of meat in them. The clam strips were delicious and the onion rings were cooked perfectly. Not a really healthy meal... More

The Clam Shack has mediocre fair, at high price point. Aside from the view, there is nothing exceptional about the food. The chowder is good, everything else is from Sysco.

Just looked it up on this site and it came up with best reviews for something quick and good. I got the famous Giant Lobster Roll with onion rings Cole slaw and a pickle with an ice tea. It came to $27- for that sandwich. I thought it was pricey for a 1/2 pound of lobster and the homemade mayo... More

I've eaten here twice in the last few weeks and really enjoyed both meals (fish n chips and fish nuggets). The location is awesome and if you go after 3 on Saturday they've had an acoustic guitar player who is awesome. We went around 4 one day and beat the rush. The service is great and the food is good... More

Great spot for summer. Overlooking the Warren river. Classic New England. Clam shell parking lot & dining area. This is a self serve clam shack which I love. The chowda & clam cakes were very good but lobster roll disappointed. I had choice of mayo or drawn butter ---went with mayo. Looked great small amount of mayo, good deal of... More

What a gorgeous spot! We thought it was the perfect day to try the Blount Clam Shack. The service was good and fast. I ordered a side of fried fish. It was blah and the fish coating was dark brown so maybe it was cooked for too long or the oil was old. I wouldn't the fish again. My nephew... More
