Mansion House is a legacy business for those who don't know. It may have changed hands but the name is the same and the expectations are too. I haven't been in ten years and was excited to visit but I read the Trip Advisor reports so my expectations were measured. I assumed though since the last several months of reviews... More

It's been a while since I've visited this venerable establishment. Service has waned since then. Maybe my visit was an off day...or breaking in new staff. Ordered lobster roll for lunch and was brought tartar sauce? - no melted butter? Bland taste. No one asked me how food was There was only one other couple in the restaurant. Had to... More

As the lone seafood eater in my home I have a tough time getting the family to go to a predominantly seafood restaurant, but because it was Father's Day I was able to choose where to dine. I have some great memories of this place over the years, going back to when the only menu was on a chalkboard in... More

The Mansion Clam House has really gone down hill. We have been going there for years and always had a good meal served by a friendly staff. We were there on June 15 for dinner and could not wait to get out of there. Got water and bread right away from a bus boy, then waited and waited for our... More

Maybe I am getting picky in my old age Or maybe i am just a great cook, not chef just house cook, maybe because my roots are from Spain and Italy...but, a plain salty lobster roll not even cooked in butter no parsley or shallots or white wine...we ate it because it was 22$ but a hint of butter would...

Mansion Clam House has been in it's current location for years. My feeling it remains in operation is because you get a decent meal around a friendly staff for a good price. Westport has many better eating establishments where the quality and freshness of he food is directly related to the cost. Mansion Clam House has a good amount of... More

Waiter handed one person of our party an old menu with a lower price for an item, then announced that he would be charging us more since the price had gone up. We asked for a simple substitution on a salad and he said that would be another $2, which we said was fine as well. I work in customer... More

Excellent seafood restaurant with a large selection of fish and seafood. I especially liked the Rhode Island chowder a lot of clams and clear broth. The stuffed trout was very tasty and different. The atmosphere was rustic and the owner was very friendly and helpful . I definitely would recommend this restaurant.

Today we took a long bike trip to Westport after reading the great reviews of the Mansion Clam House. I have to say that it didn't disappoint on any front from the high quality seafood to our wonderful server Jose. We ordered an assortment of apps and main courses and we enjoyed every bite as did our traveling companions. Great... More

Seafood and steak are the standouts - along with friendly and prompt service and reasonable prices. Parking is an issue, so be prepared to walk if the lot is full.
