Some Of The Best Crispy Fried Seafood In New Hampshire Can Be Found At Pop's Clam Shell
Fancy fare has its time and place, but nothing can ever take the place of a good old-fashioned plate of fried seafood. And while you’ll find plenty of that all over New Hampshire, most locals will agree that there’s something special about Pop’s Clam Shell. In fact, no trip to Lake Winnipesaukee is complete without enjoying at least one meal here.
You'll find Pop's Clam Shell at 55 Mt Major Highway in Alton Bay, on the shores of the bay.
Lake Winnipesaukee is New Hampshire's largest lake, so it's a top tourist destination -- and Pop's is an immensely popular stop.
Pop's Clam Shell has been around since 1945.
And while it has been remodeled plenty of times, it still has its original old-fashioned charms.
The fried seafood is served in generous portions, and for good reason -- it's pretty much impossible not to finish, or at least try.
From the fried shrimp to the clam strips, everything is extremely addictive.
You can order your seafood as a side, or splurge on a larger plate or a boat.
If you really can't make up your mind between two of the top orders, simply ask for the Lobster Roll and Clam plate. There's really nothing better than a lobster roll with a side of fried clams.
Pop's also has a full grill, so you can order burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, and more...
... and if they happen to be serving their freshly made clam chowder that day, make sure you save room for a cup.
Pop's Clam Shell is open Thursday - Sunday from 11:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. (7 p.m. on Sundays).
