After Memorial Day, Rob and Susan eagerly awaited the reopening of this great place. Well, it turns out that the Clam Shack had been renovated and is now under new management. The Bayview Clam Shack had opened under a brand new name, the Bayside Clam Bar and Grill and had just opened two short weeks ago.

Everything just blended together, the weather was beautiful and a cool breeze blew from in from the Great South Bay. It was so clear that you could see Fire Island across the water. To compliment our meal, we heard a great band called Stoneage.

I can tell you that there is a new Facebook page for the Bayside Clam Bar and Grill.
The new menu has come in and the locals are in for a real treat. We tried the desserts tonight. Susan had a New York style cheesecake and Rob had a peach pie with chocolate ice cream. All homemade by family and friends.
Some of the offerings on the new menu include Pan Sauteed Hawaiian Sunfish, Grilled Honey Mustard Breast of Chicken, 3 Dog Knight (3 hot dogs covered in sauerkraut, chili cheese and one topped with onions), 14 ounce shell steak, one pound Atlantic lobster, Sweet and Sour Shrimp Stir Fry, Cocoanut Crusted Shrimp, Traditional Fish and Chips and an 8 ounce Angus beef burger that is to die for. There are also salads and some great starters with little necks and oysters on the half shell, bacon wrapped shrimp, jalapeno chedder poppers, steamed clams and delicious conch fritters.
Rob and Susan also shared the twin lobster rolls and substituted wild rice for fries. All brought to you by Chef Lou, Dave's brother in law. Our server was Dave's daughter, Mara.
The Bayside Clam Bar and Grill is also open at 7 for breakfast. Go and enjoy.
