Hands down no debate--Clam Box in Ipswich
Bob"s Clam Hut in Kittery
Belle isle seafood in Winthrop
Clam box in Ipswich,the hungry traveller in Salisbury. These Woodmans/Summer Shack/ Browns/Farnhams/ all way overrated and way over priced.
Mac's at the Pier in Wellfleet or Yankee Lobster in the Seaport District. Plump and delicious!
Farnham's in Essex - by far the best!
Evelyn's in Tiverton, RI
Jasper White's Summer Shack!!! Fresh and Tasty...Always!

Essex Seafood (Essex, MA) or Woodman's (Essex, MA)
the bite on marthas vineyard has the best fried clams
Jaspers is way way over priced.
On the south shore check out The Lobster Pound just before the fore river bridge
Kings in Salem Ma
If they were still around, McIntyres by far were the best of the best. Clam Box is now the place to go. Waited a little over an hour yesterday to order. Well worth the wait.
Marathon seafood bass river cc
Farnhams in Essex by far the best

If I had to pick just one for the rest of my life -- and I don't see why I would -- I'd go with the Hingham Lobster Pound.

Yankee Lobster, right behind whatever the hell they call Harborlights these days, has some really very good fried clams. They never show up on lists, but they've become my goto spot for dinner before a concert there or time spent at Harpoon.
