So, I went there, because I wanted a place for beer and wings. Palmetto doesn't have too many nice places for just beer and wings and the Beef's in Ellention is a bit of a drive. I discovered this place online and decided to give it a shot. It's half-way between being a dumpy hole in the the wall and... More

We are local, so go here often. There is nothing bad to say, over many visits there has not been one negative. We always have the sushi, but we bring visiting family here a lot, they all liked the rest of the menu. We love this place and will continue to give them our business!

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 on the... 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
