    Same here. And don't be putting any piggin' strawberries in that rhubarb! It needs to be good and tart, eh?

    Yep, regional cooking of this country is amazing. Low country boil, anyone? Crawfish boil? Maryland Crab feast? New England Clambake on the shore? You name it and I'll probably find a way to love it.

    Errrmmmm, we've seriously derailed Johnie's thread.

    Oh my....now I want a nice hearty clambake...

    Do you know that in all my years...I've never been to the one at Disney. Do you know, is it very good?

    It's not a clambake. The health department wouldn't allow them to do a true one, so they have done the best they can.

    I am talking about Cape May at the Beach Club, of course.

    They have a lovley buffet there for all that. The clams are steamed (and not steamers, or soft shell clams, so not really authentic, but nice enough). The mussels are steamed as well, with an olive oil based seasoning. There are shrimp; boiled. Sometimes hot, sometimes cold. Another fish (usually salmon ).

    Corn bread, clam chowder (surprisingly good) another soup, or Walt's favorite chili, steamed red potatoes, little corn on the cob (cut small) other breads.

    Ribs, a really nice roasted chicken, sausage and peppers (although it's not the real sausage of the northeast) pasta dish, vegetable dishes, mashed potato, roast beef, and a childrens corner. There are some other selections on this side too.

    There is the cold side (the buffet is in four sides with the steam tables in the center) with salad makings, other cold salads, cottage cheese, fruit, ect.

    Desserts are at a separate table. The flan is unbelievably good.

    So, all that to say, although it's not a New England Clambake as the sign proclaims, it's still a great place to dine if you want to enjoy all the clams and mussels you can hold.

    I have a story.

    Last time we were there we had two relatives as our guest (and Seth of course, ). The two relatives were men, and one is a USN Seabee and the other served on board ship in the Navy. Needless to say, they got into a friendly competition to see who was going to eat the most clams.

    We haven't been back yet!

    We've always (but for once when the Executive Chef wasn't on, and the steam tables weren't working properly) had a very nice time there. We like to take the "family" groups there as there is such a wide variety of choices.

    At holidays they add to the selection; roast turkey, gravy, etc. We went there for Thanksgiving one year and had a great time!

    Well, I don't honestly remember how long we were there, but let me tell you those "boys" can eat when they decide to. They are both quite slim (military bearing and all that) so it was pretty amazing to see how they could just keep eating. LOL.

    Trust me though. They were both priiiiiiiittttttty much opposed to eating much of anything the next day.

    Little did they know that I had special ordered clams for another dinner at home! They were gracious enough to eat them and pretend to enjoy them, but the general gusto was missing.

    You may want to check the price of the buffet. Last I heard it has risen to about $38 per person, and that is pretty steep I think.

    You had ordered clams for another meal!?!? OMG!! Even funnier!!! Bless their hearts, glad they were good sports about it

    I will definitely call this morning and see about getting an ADR (it'll just be the four of us the first night, we arrive a day earlier than everyone else; so maybe I'll get lucky )

    $38 is a bit steep, but remember...this trip we're doing the bounceback, so we're on the dining plan

    It'll be a good way to introduce the kiddos to some more seafood choices, they've really come to enjoy shrimp and assorted fish...so maybe they'll find something else they enjoy

    Ah, yes. Well then, no problem eh?

    Remember, it's not a seafood buffet, rather clams, mussels, shrimp and one fish choice. I stress that because other folks who have gone there come away disappointed sometimes when they don't understand that it's not a seafood buffet.

    You'll pay extra for your drinks if I remember correctly, but they have a full bar selection available from Martha's Vineyard.

    We like to go a bit early and relax with a pre-dinner cocktail at Martha's before we go into dinner.

    Thanks for the reminder, Tink...I'm sure the kids will find something to fill up on (cornbread comes to mind w/ the boy he's a carbo like his mom :wink: )

    A nice pre=dinner drink sounds perfect...

    Off to sort out if it's still to early to call Disney Dining...
