Expect a wait at this always-busy joint, a landmark since 1951. It serves great seafood and fresh crab on paper plates to an appreciative crowd wearing flip-flops and jeans. Don’t miss the delish chowder – it’s loaded with clams. If you’re in a hurry, saunter up to the fish-market counter inside and order your seafood to go.

Kids and light eaters can get fish skewers.
