When done right, a tasty fried clam is the ultimate indulgence—fatty, crunchy, and salty, all wrapped around a briny burst of the sea. Luckily for us, there is no shortage of places to get those delectable edibles. Seaport Grille fries them up right year-round—heaping piles of golden goodness in a spot overlooking Gloucester’s working waterfront.
