There is a rumor floating around that the clam hut will be back to life perhaps by summer of 2014. From what I understand the owner is looking to get back to the basics with a small but relaxing place to enjoy seafood and cocktails. Perhaps with some luck and a little more time we will be back again in... More

I hope they rebuild our favorite stop after a day at Sandy Hook! We were so sad to drive up and see that the Clam Hut was no longer open, nor barely standing. : (

Have been vacationing in the Highlands for years now and the Clamhut was only one block away from where I stay on Bay Ave. It was a great spot, good food, good drinks, good entertainment, beautiful view and in walking distance. I was there the weekend that Sandy hit and was at the Halloween Party that was held at the... More

There back deck season will be ending soon. Not sure about the inside or if they close for the winter. We have never had a bad meal. My favorite is the Fish taco's, they rival anywhere else. Recently found out that they will grill/broil the fish if you ask and it is so good that way and healthier. Excellent friendly... More

This is a great shore stop- The Steamers are very good and the live music is great, Make it a stop before you head back home.

We were very disappointed. We had been there a couple of years ago under the previous management. Before on a Friday night business was booming, inside dining rooms were full, food was excellent. On our recent visit we walked into a dark unairconditioned dining room. The restaturant was empty - no customers, no staff - it looked like the restaturant... More

The Clam Hut is exactly what it claims to be - it is not, nor has it ever been, pretentious. When I was a kid, it's where you went for steamers. While people from Maryland have their crabs, people from this part of Jersey have their clams. In fact, locals used to be called "clam diggers" back in the day.... More

We are under new management with new menu and new staff. We just opened May 18th with a very successful weekend. I am not sure how the previous review could be taken to heart considering we were not open on May 10. My name is Renee, please see me on your next visit and I am sure you will have... More
