I really couldn't chip in as Alan was looking for a clam shack and I couldn't come up with anything remotely resembling that. Mussels are a bigger deal here, especially Penn Cove mussels. And then there is Taylor Shellfish Farm on Chuckanut Drive and their products can't be beat--although you have to cook them yourself. D'Anna's is a most excellent place so if they have clams, go for it; not too pricey either. There are several high-end seafood places but that is a different subject.

Edit: CJ's was mentioned; I ate there a couple of weeks ago and had the best fish (mahi) taco north of the San Diego.

I still can't get over the fact that so many people actually eat mussels, too many years using them as bait I guess.

Thanks to everyone - I'm sure we will eat well while camping at Birch Bay.

I'm disappointed that fried clams aren't available in "clam country". It must be an east coast thing? But I'm not worried - mussels are a favorite of Susannah's, and I will be happy with a basket of steamers - but Susannah won't be sharing for certain.

Alan,
Costco has the best deal on canned chopped clams ... 2 - 51oz cans for about $15.00 or so. They are very good!


Hope that can relieve your clam desires


Tom

You just need to come a little south. Long Beach penninsula. Fried Clams all over. This IS clam country so it is not an east coast thing.
