A Clamoring Success!

Erich’s Clam Shack

Last year we reviewed the revamped Roht Marine on the North River in Marshfield. roht1

This time we dive into the food wares from Erich’s Clam Shack at the marina.roht3

Touting “world famous clams” from recipes created while hawking at the Marshfield Fair, these are offered as platters and rolls and are some of the best we’ve ever had.  The batter here is very light and not greasy, and the whole belly clams are delicious.

My 71 year old dad, who’s had fish sandwiches all over New England states that Erich’s Clam Shack is the best he’s tasted.  And he’s a picky eater.

They also offer flatbreads, lobster rolls, ice cream and specialty drinks.

The view on the deck cannot be beat and there is also an indoor bar and covered seating during off-weather days.

The marina is also offering live music on weekends as well.roht4

Put this marina and clam shack on your boating or coastal drive destination and bring your appetite.

Rivershed Rivershed3

This is the first blog of random and unscheduled reviews of local eateries.  We eat out a lot here on the South Shore.  So we’d like to highlight some of our favorites….

First up is Rivershed in the Greenbush neighborhood of Scituate.  This restaurant has turned over a couple of times and now has found its footing.  The décor is kind of southern BBQ meets fishing cottage, with a dash of the Florida keys! rivershedA

The food is excellent.  We’ve had the variety of tacos, BBQ pulled pork, chicken and brisket.  They have mammoth burgers and a delicious buffalo dip appetizer.Rivershed1

Rivershed’s beer menu is pretty extensive with many local and regional craft brews and a sweet selection of craft cocktails as well. This place has become my family’s go-to recently and is also a cool spot for a quick drink while waiting for some pizza from next door.rivershedB

Ghost town in Scituate…

Scituate Proving GroundsIMG_0832

IMG_0838There’s been speculation for decades about houses being built upon the 115 acre property known as, Scituate’s Proving Grounds. We decided to check it out before any of that came to fruition.

History states that this land was owned by the US Armed Forces from 1918-1919, and it’s now private property.  Seeing as it’s also in our backyard and it was a beautiful Super Bowl Sunday, we decided to check it out.IMG_0837

There are several buildings that are in rough shape.  Some appear to be warehouses and others were probably barracks.  There are some paved roads, some dirt roads and a few trails.  And there is plenty of wild life living back there…….. coyotes, deer, turkeys and tons of other birds.

It is private and there are “No Trespassing” signs everywhere, so we don’t advocate hiking back there, but we wanted to document what was there before it’s all removed.IMG_0834
