Sullivan’s is a seasonal clam shack on Castle Island in Southie. That means it’s the only place within the city limits where you can eat seafood with your toes dipped in the sand, and you should probably do that at least once every summer. The fried clams come with big, clam bellies in addition to clam strips, and the lobster roll, while nothing particularly outstanding, gets the job done.
