Did you know that 2021 is an important year for The Clam Bar Amagansett roadside seafood shack? Well, it is. It’s the 40th anniversary season for the shack. For 40 years this lovely eatery has been feeding us succulent lobster rolls and other delicious seafood dishes. Some of you might even take seeing Clam Bar open its window as a sign that those warm summer days are close.
Whether you are on the way to the beach or coming back from it, the roadside shack will make sure you don’t stay hungry for long and will do so splendidly with their freshest meals and friendly staff.
The Clam Bar Amagansett has both cold and hot lobster rolls because they know that people have different preferences and want to see everyone happy. And boy, do you feel happy after eating one of their sandwiches!
The Connecticut-style lobster roll is simply a piece of art – big chunks of meat warmed in butter put on a perfectly toasted bun and served with a slice of lemon and melted butter. The crispiness of the bread and the sweet buttery taste of lobster come together beautifully. The whole roll tastes so good it might make you cry.
Their lobster salad roll, a.k.a Maine-style roll, is just as good. Even though you can definitely notice the mayo and celery, they are only there to accentuate the richness of lobster meat and the smoothness of the potato bun. It looks gorgeous, it smells heavenly, and it tastes amazing!
In your mind, the roadside shack vibe and outdoor picnic tables probably associate with quick-to-make and easy-to-eat sandwiches or burgers. And the Clam Bar doesn’t help the impression as it looks pretty simple and humble, but the saying “Don’t judge the book by its cover” totally applies to the eatery. At Clam Bar Amagansett, the menu is extensive and has something for everyone.
So while Clam Bar should be your go-to place when you want to grab a quick bite, it doesn’t mean you can’t get a proper dinner here. There are New England and Manhattan clam chowder, mussels, fried calamari, jumbo shrimp cocktail, fresh grilled tuna, salmon, and more. The shack also has a fine selection of beers and wine. You can even get a dessert – their key lime pie deserves an award – to make it a 3-course dinner.
