We tried going to this restaurant last Friday but they were packed. Today is Wednesday and we sat right down and got served right away. It was our third or fourth time here. I ordered the shrimp over grits and was not disappointed. Kudos to the chef. It was really good. Sug was our server and she did a good... More

I walked in early myself for their seafood. Got seated and waited for long, watching servers walking back and forth in front of me. Then a waitress came over and asked me to change table saying she had reservations. Obviously single walk-ins are not welcomed here, they don’t care. Make sure you make reservations or bring a crowd of guests... More

We had a fabulous dinner. My husband had the Thai fish fry. It was fabulous. I had the clam house grouper- so fresh. Our daughter loved her fish sticks and chocolate cake. John, our server, was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient.

We were a party of 6 dining here for the 1st time. We all ordered different dishes and each one from appetizer to entree was fresh, delicious and perfectly seasoned. The shrimp and grits were the best we've had since dining in Charleston.Doesn't sound good but believe me, if you never tried before, this is the place for your first.... More

very disappointed. Inexpensive fish (haddock or flounder) for comparably expensive price. It is actually hard to get good fish in FL without getting into a little black cocktail dress. The best we have found is cod that is fresh every day at a new restaurant called Cast and Cage in Bradenton Beach at the end of the Bridge Street pier.... More

I think you might have posted this to the wrong restaurant. First we don't have Flounder on the menu and second, The Cast and Cage is closed......hummm. Oh, well hope you have a better dining experience wherever you land next. ; ) More

HUGE plate of fried clams, enough to share, Along with 5 different sushi rolls and drinks, a truly fun night. Sat out on the covered patio which is right next to the road so it was a little noisy, but well worth it.

It's not on the water, but that is the only thing this seafood resturaunt lacks. Seriously. This is Florida. There is no reason to settle for seafood that is not local and fresh. The Clam House is the real thing. It has local fish options that you will find no where else. Honestly, the only way to have some of... More

Fresh caught fish, fast service, fun atmosphere. Clam House has an unusually large selection of seafood as well as alternatives. Yummy!
