The word chowder is probably derived from the French word chaudière: a large cauldron aboard a ship into which fishermen would throw fish to make stew.

Clam bakes have always been popular events in northern Ohio. In fact, the history of the clam bake in northern Ohio can be traced to just after the Revolutionary War, when New England farmers whose farms and homes were destroyed by war were offered inexpensive land in the Western Reserve and Firelands, which is now the Northcoast of Ohio. Fall clam bakes are one of the traditions the settlers brought with them.
We feel that our clambake is one of the best because we purchase our food products from the best purveyors in the country. We have featured clam bakes in October for the past twenty years. We purchase farm-raised Littleneck Clams from Maine, Prince Edward Island mussels from Nova Scotia & lobster and scallops caught off the coast of Massachusetts… top-quality, fresh and prepared just right.
