This summer, try the Shore Dinner at Falmouth’s Sea Crest Beach Hotel

There is nothing like a clambake.After a day of swimming and sunbathing or otherwise adventuring around Cape Cod, relaxing in the sand to enjoy some fresh, succulent seafood as the sun goes down is a special experience. When someone else is preparing the food, it’s even better.

This summer, on every Tuesday evening in July and August, the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in North Falmouth offers its own tasty take on the timeless clambake: the Old Silver Beach Shore Dinner. “The clambake is definitely the quintessential Cape Cod experience,” says Elizabeth Rowell, the Sea Crest’s regional marketing director. “Everyone associates clambakes with summertime on the Cape. It’s perfect for families and definitely something for everyone.”

The shore dinner includes one and one-half pounds of lobster, one-half pound of local steamers, one-half pound of mussels, chorizo sausages, corn on the cob, and baby potatoes. Hamburgers are also available, as are hot dogs, barbeque chicken, and salad. Sweets include watermelon slices and a variety of warm, freshly made cookies. Iced tea and lemonade help wash everything down.
