Hingham Lobster Pound

Quotes Hingham Lobster Pound 4 Broad Cove Rd. (Route 3A) Hingham, MA 02043 (781) 749-1984 Once a bait shop, Hingham Lobster Pound is now a takeout clam shack that has Nantasket Beach goers swerving off 3A for their breaded fried clams. Many seafood specialists find flour to be a cheaper, lighter alternative, but the Pound spares no expense to create a 2nd skin of blistering crunch over each briny full-bellied clam. The onion rings crackle with the same fried coating, and the banana fritters melt in your mouth. Nostalgic Pictures of Hingham and Nantasket cover the ordering galley, and customers can quiz themselves with Trivial Pursuit cards while waiting. Call ahead two hours for steamed lobster. Quotes

Quotes Local Secrets, Big Finds 2007 Pick January 28, 2008 Rated 5 of 5 by Local Secrets from New York, New York Sitting "on a curve in the road with little parking and no place to eat inside, Hingham Lobster Pound is a hidden gem." From the fried clams to the fish and chips (and don't forget the banana fritters), "it's by far the best, freshest example of local seafood." This "counter-only, seasonal restaurant" fosters the long-held "local tradition of how families along the cost of New England to eat fried seafood." www.travelocity.com/localsecrets Quotes

Quotes 12 11/4/2009 Higham Lobster Pound is the quintessential signal that I'm back... While I have no recollection of running along Hingham Harbor with a little corn-dog in my hand like my mom says, every time I'm back in Mass. we never fail to stop at this little shack to get our haddock and fried clam fix. The bredding is what makes the meal. It's all about the sweet, flaky coating that melts in your mouth without overpowering the yummy fresh seafood encased. This place has character. I love looking at all the old pics from back in the day or watching the lobsters in the tank while waiting for the goodness to arrive. The portions are pretty large for the price as well. Just overall goodness :) Quotes
