....WE JUST FOUND OUR NEW FAVORITE PLACE!

How lucky are we to have found this little gem. I had recently researched buying local clams and found The Clam House as they harvest and sell their own clams, right out of Tampa Bay. We went on a Fri night, it was raining and we arrived just before 8 pm. Every table was full, inside and outside... read more

This is a good family seafood restaurant. Nothing fancy but excellent food, well prepared and modestly priced.

This was the first time I visited this restaurant, and it was quirky and relaxed..had the Florida jibe going on..I really enjoyed the atmosphere. I never saw a menu of regular dishes as well as a sushi menu..so I ordered from both. I had fish tacos, and edamame..and both were excellent. Our friends ordered sushi as well..I recommend this restaurant,,the... More

The Clam House serves fresh quality seafood and sushi. If you are looking for a unique dining experience try the Thai Fry! It is a whole fish, eyes and all deep fried to absolute perfection. They always have an assortment of fresh fish right out of the Gulf of Mexico or Tampa Bay. Did I mention the clams? Yummy! They... More

It was wonderful. Fun part is the bring you a clipboard with what fish they have left that evening...pick your fish and how... More

Palmetto is, along with Bradenton my home turf. Our close close family chose the Clam House for our final dinner together. I had not been in this area of town for decades.we heard they served a Thai Fry fish dish which sounded and looked interesting. I called the restaurant and asked David if we needed reservations for a party of... More

Ask the owner about how he farms his own clams and provides clams to most area restaurants - and I bet he saves the best for his place because the clams are succulent and tasty. Has become one of our favorite places to have a casual dinner out. Music is a bit too loud (and the speaker vibrates) but aside... More

John and I went to the CLam House with our best friends. Our waiter, Florian, was a fisherman by day and incredibly knowledgeable about fish. All is fresh and caught this day. They have a clip board with the fresh fish that they have and as you order it, the waiter crosses off your choice. They come in varied gradations... More
