Fried Clam wars in Kennebunkport
Battle of the take outs!
Tired of watching hundreds of thousands of take out patrons file like lemmings to their neighbor the Clam Shack, the owners of Bartley's Dockside restaurant have posted large signs and placed a takeout stand under an umbrella directly in front on their own restaurant.
Apparantly, no one remembered that Bartley's offers take out as well.
The Clam Shack is in the background on the left-note the sign on the side of the building.
In the heat of the summer, the area is brimming with the smell of fried seafood, and Bartley's opens colorful umbrellas over tables, looking for their fair share of the fried clam and patio drinks crowd.
