Snockey's Oyster & Crab House is turning 100 years old on Thursday, May 3rd. Dinner platters will be priced at $19.12 all day to celebrate the monumental occasion. During this entire week, Snockey's is extending their Clammy Hour, which means cheap shrimp, oysters, booze, and yes, clams.

On Saturday, May 5th, they're planning a beer garden and live entertainment featuring Jim Fogarty and the Tone Benders, and on Sunday, May 6th, WPRB-FM’s Professor Couch and the Rockabilly Roadhouse Radio deejays host a “Cruise In”, showcasing the generations of Snockey’s existence through classic cars.

Current owners Ken and Skip Snock (The 3rd generation of the Snock family), have added scallops, jumbo crabs, mussels, lobster and more to the original menu, but the restaurant's most popular dish is Mrs. Snockey’s Original Oyster Stew, which hasn't changed at all since it was invented by the first members of the clan.
