The only food concession at Nauset Beach. The fried clams and onion rings are great - as are the milk shakes/frappes. Lines get CRAZY long at lunchtime on weekends in high season. It's hard to walk by without ordering anything when the kitchen's in operation...More

We've been going to Liam's for years on our Cape Cod vacations. The latest trip there was great as always. Outstanding fried clams and terrific location. Don't miss this place; it's a genuine Cape Cod experience. We always look forward to going back.

Nothing in the world is better than a family visit to Liam's for onion rings, a dunk in the freezing ocean, and then a nice hot cup of something on a Sunday night! (Careful of those sharks though!)

I fell in love with Cape Cod by eating the fried onion rings and fried clams at Nauset Beach. Liam's has continued the tradition!

Liams has excellent beach food. A meal there just tops off a day at the beach. Excellent shakes, scallops, onion rings and lots more.

Nothing better then having clam chowdah and onion rings on the beach. Something I look forward to every time we visit Nauset Beach. We are usually there in the spring time and back in Sept. again. My vacation isn't complete without having a few trips...More

After a decades-long, grueling search for the finest onion rings in the world--Liam's onion rings are still without compare! Not cheap, and painfully long-lines in peak summer season, but hugely worth the wait. Other seafood (e.g., clam strips) are also extremely good.

Any time my wife and I are even close to Nauset Beach we have to go to Liam's. The food is always incredibly fresh and great tasting. Yesterday we went for onion rings and clam "chowdah". The rings are just superb. The clam chowder was...More

We had huge lobster rolls a couple days ago (seemed to be the promised half -pound each) that were delicious with fresh and sweet lobster. We would have rated them five stars if there had been some lemon and a little less mayo (probably just...More

Thanks for your great review!! We always have fresh lemons and limes behind the counter, but for sanitary reasons leave them on ice for customers who want that option. We strive to not soak our seafood rolls in mayo, and will prepare them with no...More

Is clam chowder gluten free? I am not sure if they have cooking facilities that would keep gluten items separated from non gluten.
