It’s been 95 years since Ulysses and Carrie Cooper opened a restaurant to meet the demand for her deep-fried invention: clam cakes. Aunt Carrie’s descendants still turn out these amorphous, golden-crisp, doughnut-type balls filled with tender clam bits. They’re Rhode Island’s number-one comfort food: a meal in their own right or the tastiest part of a complete shore dinner. Half dozen: $4.15. Best Clam Cakes

Serving up fresh seafood for nearly 100 years. Known primarily as the birthplace of the clam cake, Carrie’s also serves excellent shore dinners of fresh boiled lobster, steamed clams.

    Thank you for including us in your “Best of New England” as we celebrate 95 years with our fourth generation. We have been so fortunate to have been able to continue the tradition with some of Aunt Carrie’s original recipes. We love to hear family stories of coming here with parents or grandparents and meeting so many great people that stop in from all over the country while visiting Rhode Island. Thanks again.
