Good service, decent food

Stopped in for lunch with the family at the end of their season. Our server was pleasant and attentive. We were in for a quick bite and it was good. We would return.

The appeal of the crazy clam is its location! It's just a short ride to get away from the city, and right on Oneida lake. The crazy clam is casual and relaxed. The food has never disappointed. The staff especially the bar maids take good care of you, making sure you have everything you need. I would recommend this restaurant... More

We have been to the crazy clam many times over this last summer. The food is excellent and service is very good. They do have a great Happy Hour with 2 for 1 up til 7 pm on weekdays. It is on the Canal and not the lake, but you can still see some boats from the bar area.

After walking around and sitting outside in the heat, we wanted to have lunch at CRAZY CLAM inside- where it was cool! I have had a few meals here and I'm never disappointed. The prime Rib Sandwich is also great besides the seafood. The bread with the spicy tomato oil is yummy! I've had the seafood marinara twice now and... More

I would have normally given this restaurant 5 stars but was rather disappointed in our meal tonight. We had a $24 Fried Seafood Platter. Underwhelmed! 3 shrimp, 3 scallops, clams and a piece of haddock that looked like it came out of a toaster oven.. We've been here many times and first meal we have not loved. The sweet potato...

We stopped into the Crazy Clam for lunch one afternoon and we ordered a couple of appetizers to split. We had a dozen steamed clams and 1/2# of cajun shrimp. We were not disappointed and both were very good. We will definitely stop back and spend some time in Sylvan Beach.

Disappointed to see an old favorite closed down-Yesterday's Royale. Able to get an outside table at Crazy Clam next door. Didn't have Gumbo as advertised, but had three other soup options. Side salad very green and good, steamers very good, 5 large shrimp in shrimp cocktail good. Kids ordered pizza rolls and fries and chicken nuggets and fries. Buffalo chicken... More
