It's officially Fall.  So we tested all your favorite clam chowders in Montauk and highlighted our three favorite, must-have clam chowders to keep you warm.


The Clam Bar

One of our favorite New England style clam chowders.  We love this one because it's not too heavy and filling.  Bonus: If you are vegetarian this chowder has no bacon!

The Dock 

The Dock's Montauk Clam Chowder is a Manhattan style chowder, one of its only kind out east.  This chowder has a lot of flavor, just like the restaurant's ambiance.

This is our go-to hearty New England style clam chowder.  Thick and creamy and full of potato and clams.  You can't go wrong ordering a cup as an appetizer or bowl for dinner.
