We ended up here after walking out of another restaurant that evening. It was an anniversary dinner for us and our first choice was not going well so we bailed on it. From the moment we walked in (with no reservations by the way) we were welcomed and everyone there worked to make our dinner special. It started out with... More

Stopped in with my husband on a Tuesday night. Cozy spot with really good service. Oysters on the half shell were excellent and the server could talk about them and where they came from. Fried oysters with beef tartare was a bit disappointing - the tartare was so overdressed that the meat had no chance to shine...just drowning. Two of... More

We were really looking forward to our dinner at Claddagh, but the food certainly did not live up what we read on Trip Advisor. A drink with no discernible liquor, fried oysters that were so highly salted as to be inedible, and a very small serving of lobster risotto which was lacking much lobster and filled with stringy cheese made...

Was looking for a simple hamburger and fries. Walked by the Claddagh House and decided to get their pattie burgar. Much to my surprise it was seasoned with no mention in the menu. I just wanted a simple burger. They were very kind, took it off my bill, and did everything they could to make it right. Might try them... More

My partner and I came to Claddagh Oyster House for an early dinner during our vacation in early October 2013. This was the best full meal we had during our week long trip! We decided to share a local beer (you can never go wrong with local!) and start with an oyster each. Neither of us had ever had oysters... More

Great dinner. Service was good. The Oysters were great - previously I did not like oysters - now love them!! There were 6 of us - everything we ordered was super. I had the Fish Stew and it was amazing - best ever - with big piece of fish on a bed of mussels and scallops - Yummy! Highly recommend... More

I love fresh oysters and was so excited to see that they had a happy hour with $1 fresh oysters. The sauces were great, but not necessary. They oysters were EXTREMELY fresh and tasty! I couldn't believe there were not more people there! I had 2 dozen myself!

Loved it so much we ate there twice. Food was of the best quantity and taste. They created an oyster platter for me that was out if this world.
