Fried Whole Belly Clams

Wow! I am completely amazed with the responses I have received since my original post in 2008. I found a place close to my current residence in Palm Beach Gardens named Lola's and I am so disappointed. Small portions, over priced and the oil they fry in is not fresh. The clams are small. (I prefer a clam with a full belly). Service is horrible even when they have few patrons in the restaurant. I was recently in my home state of Connecticut. Lennie's in Branford, Jimmie's in West Haven and Glen Wood in Hamden are by far the best in New England....

I would highly recommend Spoto's Oyster Bar, 125 Datura St. Downtown WPB. Sit at the bar for a great martini and delicious oyster shooters!

Matteo's Restaurant in Jupiter

Does anyone have any comments to make about Matteo's Restaurant? They just opened a new location in Jupiter.

Best Hotdogs in Conn.

We moved to FL 12 years ago from Hamden. Whenever we have visitors from CT, our guests are REQUIRED to bring a 5 lb. box of Hummel's for Mom. They are the best!

Fried Whole Belly Clams

Does anyone know where a can find a restaurant in South Florida (East Coast) that serves fried whole belly clams? I am a transplanted New Englander and my craving is out of control!!!!

Recipes for Whole Belly Fried Clams?......

Thanks. I am going to order the clams already shucked from a website I found or I may buy some middlenecks and shucked them myself. Enjoy the parade. I've been there on several occasions and always had a blast! Happy 4th!

Recipes for Whole Belly Fried Clams?......

Anyone out there have a good recipe for Whole Belly Fried clams? I am a Connecticut girl now living in South Florida and I cannot find a restaurant that serves whole belly fried clams. Some people think I am crazy when I even mention it. So, I am going to attempt to make them myself. I guess I am feeling a bit nostalgic with the 4th of July coming up. Fried clams, hot dogs, lobster rolls (with split top buns).... I sure miss home!!! Thanks!!!!

Fried whole belly clams

I would have to say Jimmy's is probably your best bet in Conn.

Name your favorite burger joint!

I couldn't agree with you more! As a Connecticut girl now living in South Florida, I would kill to have a Louis burger. I even went so far as to email Jeff about shipping some burgers down. Unfortunately it can't be done but whenever I visit CT the first place I go is Louis Lunch for a burger, Pepe's for a pizza and Glenwood Drive-in for whole belly fried clams!!! Oh how I miss home......

Glenwood Drive-In, Hamden, CT. The best whole belly fried clams, handmade onion rings and great hot dogs.
