Mussels can be made in a variety of different ways, but they’re good no matter what. And nearly every seafood restaurant on Long Island serves up this shellfish, but who makes it best?

Long Islanders voted Popei’s Clam Bar as making the Best Mussels on Long Island in the 2020 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest!

Crack ’em open and savor what’s inside — the best mussels on the Long Island are found at none other than Popei’s Clam Bar. Since 1991, Popei’s has been the top spot on the isle for delicious seafood, and their savory mussels continue to keep customers coming back for more. Popei’s casual but vibrant atmosphere makes enjoying the shelled, chewy delights all the more fun. In the summer, patrons can enjoy their mussels with great drinks and live music at the outdoor Tiki bar, and in the colder seasons, the feast continues indoors. Popei’s is known for their generous portions, so come hungry!

Popei’s Clam Baris located at 451 Middle Country Rd., Coram. It can be reached at 631-696-4029 or popeisclambaronline.com
