I've finally found a reference as to the difference between strips & whole belly clams.  They are, indeed, two different clams (hard vs. soft shell) - strips are not simply the same clam with the belly removed. 
 
"The United States is the only source for surf clam, which is too big and too coarse to be eaten whole like other clams. Instead, they are sold processed, rather than live, in fresh, frozen, and canned products such as clam strips, minced clams, stuffed clams, chowders, and broth."

I'm surprise no one has mentioned The Clam Box or Tony's on Wollaston Beach.
I've had the clams at Woodman's and liked the Wollaston clams better

First fried clams of the season today... Sea Swirl in Mystic CT! Felt more like a fall day weather wise but the whole bellies sure tasted like summer!

I cannot remember the last time I had fried clams. Wish I was in Rhode Island or CT right now after that pic!

Johnny Ad's this weekend...my total blowout..
.I know they're frozen but I just love those crinkle cut steak fries.......
My go to is the Hummels foot long butter grilled NE roll, They used to keep the dogs in a pan of clarified butter on the flat-top...Don't know if they still do....
And, of course, everybody's star, whole belly, friend steamer clams...
The clam roll is the smallest order...so you can see I was using restraint....but the grilled roll soaks up clammy goodness, begging to be dipped in the tartar as the perfect coda, when all else is finished...my dessert....

Thank goodness we have two terrific seafood restaurants in Dallas serving fried whole belly clams.
20 Feet Under and Sea Breeze.  
Both are great!

I really like Johnny Ad's. Their hot dogs are great and I like their lobster rolls, too. I think it was around 1996 or so when I first went there.

They've been a part of my life since I was 9, MH. My dad took me there the first weekend they opened in 1957 and, with a few minor burps, the quality and consistency have been spot on ever since.....
Third owner, former GM at the Mayfair Regent, bought it right around your first visit. gave up the city to be able to raise his kids in Old Saybrook.
He knows he's the keeper of the flame and, although winters are tough, he gets what it means to folks that they're open year around...

Were you around Connecticut when Castlebrook Inn was operating in Westbrook? The Castle at Fenwick? Ferry Tavern in Old Lyme?

You do know your stuff, MH.
I never went to the Castlebrook..But I ate many times with my folks at the Ferry Tavern. After it burned, auto-dealer Herb Chambers, built his home and a small marina(for his large yachts) and fuel dock where I get my fuel. It's more like his private marina and heliport...but the diesel prices are decent.
I think you mean the Castle Inn, the building's actually close to Fenwick in Cornfield Point.... just down the street from my home now.
My first job was there. At 14, I was a busboy and bellhop.
 
The Castle's now a private home again, voluntarily up-zoned so the property could yield five expensive waterfront parcels...now homes.
As a hotel, restaurant and bar,it was a notorious speakeasy during prohibition, owned by Charles Lindbergh's uncle, and there's a cement wall where there was once a tunnel directly from the beach into the basement for unloading hooch...
My Dad also grew up in Cornfield Point. He and his teen  buddies would make big money($5.00/night) ferrying cases of Canadian whiskey from the fast boat to the rocky beach...til their folks found out.....a lot of kids ate standing up for a week.....

Jim Viveiros, who along with his brother Jim (the chef) owned Ferry Tavern, was a good friend of my father, and also one of his best customers. My father was in the meat business and Ferry Tavern, along with Castlebrook, the Castle, Bill Hahn's, Eddie Rahm's and many other places along the Connecticut shore were customers. I used to deliver meat to those places when I was a kid, and one summer I worked at Castlebrook as a dishwasher, bus boy and driver. Saybrook Yacht yard was right next to Ferry Tavern in the '50s. I remember they used to build Ravens. I had a Lightning then and lusted after one of those Ravens.  As a matter of fact I was delivering to the Castle for the first time and got hopelessly lost. I stopped at a house in Fenwick to ask directions and ended up having iced tea with the owner -- someone named Katharine Hepburn.

Jim Viveiros, who along with his brother Jim (the chef) owned Ferry Tavern, was a good friend of my father, and also one of his best customers. My father was in the meat business and Ferry Tavern, along with Castlebrook, the Castle, Bill Hahn's, Eddie Rahm's and many other places along the Connecticut shore were customers. I used to deliver meat to those places when I was a kid, and one summer I worked at Castlebrook as a dishwasher, bus boy and driver. Saybrook Yacht yard was right next to Ferry Tavern in the '50s. I remember they used to build Ravens. I had a Lightning then and lusted after one of those Ravens.  As a matter of fact I was delivering to the Castle for the first time and got hopelessly lost. I stopped at a house in Fenwick to ask directions and ended up having iced tea with the owner -- someone named Katharine Hepburn.


Very Cool....
Was Pegnataro the owner when you were delivering to the Castle?
Kate was such a committed local. My mom met her at Walt's market, originally not recognizing her, commiserating about the cashier's grammar and death of the language, and she ended up doing occasional guest shots in my Mom's bridge group....
I never met her, but what an incredible Lady.....
 
And I learned to sail on my cousin's Lightning out of Essex....ravens were beautiful boats.....

Pegnataro wasn't the owner then. But I did go to school in New Haven with Joey Pegnataro. Back then they owned a supermarket in New Haven. It's interesting that your mother met Miss Hepburn at Walt's. My daughter met her there, too. My daughter was living in Old Lyme while her husband was stationed at the sub base (he's a retired plank owner of the San Juan) and she used to get her meat at Walt's (and by the way, Walt's fresh kielbasa is the best I've ever had).
