Don't be fooled by the location and outside appearance. The atmosphere is exhilarating, the staff enthusiastic, and the food absolutely wonderful. Only the freshest fish is served here....right off the boat. We tried the unique clam chowder (broth based), the clam strips, the fish wrap (haddock), shrimp & cheese grits, and the best of all....the Thai Fish Platter. Get there... More

I wanted a new seafood place to try and a good friend suggested this. It seems to have very good fresh fish, seafood and clams of course! Fun atmosphere, bar, and sushi and an outdoor dining area. Service was friendly, but I was surprised we were not asked if we wanted refills or checked on more then one time. I... More

We are new to the area and always looking for good sea food. The Clam House is one of the best. We have tried the Thai fry hog fish, the steamed clams, the sushi and the desserts, and they were all exceptional. Would love to have them offer steamed fish. We will be back.

I have lived in the area for 26 years , and close to the clam house since the opening, we have always loved the true local flavors and cuisine offered here. The Thai fry is one of our favorites, but the sushi is just exceptional. We eat at sushi restaurant s in sarasota frequently but the clam house has consistently... More

What a find. We wanted good fish, fresh, not really expensive, clean and where we could walk in wearing shorts. Okay, added bonus - super service. This place is all that. They harvest their own clams - super good. We had clam chowder, fried clams, whole fried (1.6 lbs) Hogfish & they have Sushi. We tried it all. Fantastic! Their... More

Will never return...management fired a serviceman due to his commitment to our country. The BEST sushi chief in Florida!!!! He was called to duty then told due to scheduling availability they had to fire him...REALLY?? No matter how good the food is...if you cannot support the military we cant support your local business.

Hummm......too bad that is the story someone told you. That would be a great story to and pass on. Sorry, but your information is askew. That's okay. We too have family members that are in the military so we are perfectly aware of their commitment to our country. We wish the best of luck to them and any of the... More

A friend of mine told me to come here. The Thai Style cooked fish is a must, he said. Six months later I decided to take my wife. We shared the Thai style cooked hog snapper (2.2 lbs for $44.00 and it was plenty - the most expensive option, but hogfish sells out fast. It is caught with a spear... More
