Arnold’s Lobster & Clam Bar

2005 Best Clam Shack, Cape Cod

Just as hot dogs are a Fenway favorite, it would be silly to skip clams on Cape Cod. And among the dozens of small shacks, Arnold’s remains a standout. This quality-conscious spot now has a dining room and screened-in patio—as well as lengthy lines (it’s worth the wait, though). Prepare to get messy while scarfing Wellfleet oysters, lobster rolls, and, of course, the famous Arnold’s fried clams.
