John Ohman of Dennis has been running Liam’s Clam Shack at Nauset Beach for the last 28 years. Since taking over operations in 1989 and naming the restaurant for his first son, John has been a fixture at Nauset Beach for locals and tourists alike. Liam’s is most famous for its onion rings, which have received a national reputation with rave reviews from both East and West Coasts. But this summer, visitors to Nauset will find that things have changed.
