Cape Cod Eats - The Seafood Shanty, Bournedale & Mr. G's Pizza, Sagamore Beach

School may have started, but it is still technically summer till 9/21! I rented a lovely house in Sagamore Beach and we spent the weekend, cooking, eating, drinking and playing games. I arrived first on Friday and had a few hours to myself before everyone got there. Since nothing says summer more than fried clams, I went in search of a platter.

The Seafood Shanty is just that, a building on the side of the road with picnic tables to enjoy your food at and a view of the canal.


I got the fried clam (with bellies) plate ($20). It came with a heap of indifferent fries, and cloyingly sweet coleslaw. But the clams were crispy, plump and briny and that's all the matters.


I grilled steak tips and sausages (from MacKinnon's) the first night, but rain was forecasted for the evening, so we opted for pizza on Saturday. We picked Mr. G's simply because of proximity and delivery. They don't even have a website, but their Facebook page has pictures of their take out menu. We ordered a large pepperoni and mushroom ($13) and a white pizza (garlic, basil, oregano, $15)

The pizzas came quickly and were surprisingly good – far better than I expected random pizza to be. The crust was tender and flavorful and the mushrooms were fresh. I thought the white pizza was missing something (like tomato sauce and sausage/eggplant), but it was still good. Sorry, I didn't get a picture of the pizzas; we pounced on it and by the time I remembered, it was too late. But here we are enjoying it, while playing Settlers of Catan.
