Local seafood and great selection of draft beers

Fresh local seafood and a nice selection of interesting draft beers. The clam chowder is a must try! Not New England or Manhattan... even better! Sushi is so so. Quirky thing to mention but I've had a couple of great BLT sandwiches here!

Went here twice during our last visit to Palmetto. Food is very good, especially the grill ed shrimp and blackened redfish. Has a nice outside seating place which is also a plus!

We had a great dinner at the Clam House. The Coconut Shrimp, Thai Fry, fresh grouper...all were delicious! The server gave us great recommendations. They don't serve baked potatoes which would have been good with the dinners, but the hush puppies were good. We had homemade chocolate cake for dessert.

Don't judge from the outside or location; we have had several excellent meals with great service. Try their sushi and clam broth chowder ...some of the best in the area!

The Clam House Bar and Grill ( which i think is more grill than bar) is open only for dinner. I arrived and found the place getting into full swing by 530pm on a weekday night. It appeared that many locals graced the tables and bars as many seemed to know each other. As a single diner I decided to... More

Very unassuming place from the outside and the interior decor is dated, but you forgive all that when your food arrives. Those in our family that love sushi said it was great and the rest of us enjoyed the other fresh seafood specials that night. Sides and salads fresh made good.

Our favorite place for good clams harvested by the Restuarant. We had fried clams and grilled blackened shrimp. The cucumber side is delicious. I favor the hush puppies. My partner favors the fries. We come about once a week- it's become our favorite place. Nice staff and owners too!

From the outside you would not think it has the wonderful seafood it does - looks more like burger/ sandwich place . Very fresh seafood and clam strips and sushi - will definitely be returning to test more menu items ! THE key line pie and guava cheesecake - great !

Some of our favorites include the Garlic Clams (app), the Thai Fried Fish, the Shrimp and Grits, and the Spicy Samurai Sushi!! All are excellent!! they also continue to serve food fairly late, a lot of times we go there for a later meal....9 pm is not too late most nights. They also serve more regular fare as well, burgers,... More
