Nicky's Clam Bar
99 Maple Ave. Bay Shore, NY
Situated across from the Fire Island Ferry terminal is this venerable spot, beloved to many for its convenience and its simple seafood menu.
The sweet and briny fried clams as well as the soups are what keep this dockside place well afloat. You can eat inside the nautical dining room, and there's also a takeout window, if you want your chowder or fried flounder sandwich to go.Hours: Daily, 6 am to 9 pm.
