Celebrating a Famous Cape Cod Clam Bar

Cape Cod Today reports on a newly released DVD detailing the history of Thompson’s Clam Bar in Harwichport, Massachusetts, once the largest seasonal restaurant east of the Mississippi and the most famous seafood joint on Cape Cod.

Here’s an excerpt:

“It served up to 2,000 dinners a night, put customers right next to seagulls, power boats and Wianno sailboats passing through the Wychmere Harbor channel, giving visitors who overindulged the chance to fall right into Nantucket Sound.

“The Clam Bar put thousands of students, from all over the world through college and graduate school, including a Superior Court judge in Alaska and a professor at the University of Chicago.”
