  • Samuel Adams Bar & Grill offers good food, comfortable seating
A bowl of New England clam chowder, especially on a cold spring or autumn night, cannot be passed up. The stadium also sells other seafood, in addition to a full complement of ballpark-style eats.

Any time you're this close to the ocean, it's temping to want to eat seafood. But can ballpark seafood be satisfying? And furthermore, are you brave enough to try it?

Northeast Delta Dental Stadium has a number of seafood items on its menu, and while you won't confuse this fare with that found at a five-star restaurant, it's worth trying, especially if you're fed up with the usual hot dog and nachos. Seafood is served in several forms at the concession stand just to the first base side of home, and includes clam chowder, lobster rolls and clam, fish or shrimp baskets. The baskets also come with fries and coleslaw and make for a filling meal -- all for under $10. The chowder is satisfying and especially worth trying, especially on a chilly spring or fall night.

If you're looking to enjoy the game from a distance -- and with a buffet in front of you -- the Samuel Adams Bar & Grill will be the choice for you. Boasting both bar and table seating, the bar features 11 high-definition TV screens, an 85-foot bar and plenty of food options. It also opens two hours before first pitch, and is a good way to watch batting practice before the gates open. It's located beyond the left field fence.
