Get the Best Clam Chowder, Fried Clams, and More Year-Round!

The stunning New England coast is just as stunning in winter as it is during the warmer months, though for different reasons – like a heaping plate of fried seafood, the best clam chowder, or a freshly steamed lobster.

In summer, our menu is like a taste of the beach, making it the perfect after-swim snack complete with a scoop or two of our classic ice cream stand ice cream. But when there’s a chill in the air, nothing beats the feeling of sitting down in our cozy restaurant to a bowl of our award-winning best clam chowder or digging into an overflowing plate of our traditional New England seafood.

When the seasons change, our menu stays the same, so you can enjoy the taste of summertime all year long. We’ll be ready for you when a Woodman’s craving strikes!
