My Trip to Barlow’s Clam Shack!

By One Comment2 min read

I have always been fascinated by the Cape Cod Canal ever since I saw an old Royal Viking Cruiseship passing through as I was going over the Sagamore Bridge.  Scenic Cruises through the Canal are offered but I have never made time to take a scenic cruise down the Canal nor do I know anyone who has done the cruise!   Hopefully one day, I will try the scenic cruise.

One of my favorite roads to because of its view of the Canal is the road traveling between the Bourne & Sagamore Bridges (Route 6) and I have notice two seasonal restaurants for years.  For some reason, I only take Route 6 in the off season when both restaurants are closed.   Finally I took the time to go in season and stop at one and it was worth the trip!

A stop at Barlow’s Clam Shack was in order. It was like going back in time.  This little family run restaurant offers fried foods, ice cream and a Fluffernutter!  My favorite childhood sandwich that has withheld the test of time in my book!   Hard decision on what to order, fried clams or Fluffernutter but the fried clams won out and they were what a fried clam should be!

It was a fun stop, now I owe it to myself to try the other clam shack on Route 6 and to go back to Barlow’s Clam Shack for a Fluffernutter!

    We are regulars during the season, stopping every time we head down to the Cape. Always pleasent, GREAT food, always greeted and remembered by the family staff. Owners were commercial inshore fisherman for decades, now the proud operaters of this homestyle, back to the 50’s spot.
    Realsonable prices, generious portions and CLEAN!
    Clean restrooms, clean kitchen-small gift shop and return to evas past with their “yesterday” room.
    We just love it, it gives us a break while traveling.
