Re:Whole Belly Clams in Myrtle Beach area!
Well, I'm back from my Myrtle Beach trip and checked out the whole bellies at Capt John's down close to Litchfield Beach. He gets them in on Mondays and Thursdays and usually sells out in a day! I got in at noon on a Friday and literally called from the airport to see if he had any left....NONE. So, I waited until Monday and they were FANTASTIC. I used to work in MA and on the Cape and these were every bit as good. I got two "appetizer" orders and there were two huge mounds on a dinner plate. Not cheap...12 bucks a pop. Perfectly cooked with a great house made tartar sauce. I also had a bowl of fresh haddock chowder (he gets haddock in from MA, too). Memorable lunch! Headed back down in February with my wife....she has never had any whole bellies, but loves fried oysters. She's in for a treat.
