We absolutely loved this place!

The interior was decorated in a tasteful and fun way; with a nautical theme. The waitresses were very pleasant and did a great job, considering that the restaurant was full! That said, we were able to get a table right away, without a reservation, which was nice. The food.....spectacular! Don't... read more

Went in to the establishment never been before. The owner was seated at the bar and he was drinking. He was loud and rude and I was embarrassed to be there. He had some young girl next to him that he was inappropriate with. I will never go there again.

It was my b-day. I was hungry. The wife and I headed to the Clam Bar. We snagged a table near the bar.( When the door opens it can get kinda breezy. Just something to consider,in winter, if you don't feel like waiting for a table in the main dining room.) I feasted. A dozen steamers in wine. A fried... More

We decided to try the Clam Bar after several recommendations from friends. We are so glad we did. It's a cute, cozy little place with a local feel. If we lived closer we would go every week. The food is delicious and plentiful. Service is fast friendly and the prices are cheap. It's a great find as far as we... More

We frequently stop by whenever we have to pick up or drop off at the airport. They are always packed and clearly have a "regular" crowd. Waitresses are friendly and efficient. Food is always good. Highly recommend the chowder.

Syracuse's best and longest kept secret. Been going here since I was a kid with my grandparents and now take my friends when I want to show them the best meal syracuse has to offer. Small restaurant with big personality. A must try! Get the shrimp with lobster sauce and just TRY to keep your eyeballs from rolling right out... More

Small space, big flavor. Everything is fresh from the apps to the entrées to the desserts. Busy bar and busy restaurant for good reason.

The seafood was very good. I sat at the bar and the bartender was not to friendly. He was to his regular customers. The place is a hole in the wall that serves lots of booze at lunch Lol. The place could have been cleaner. The prices were very good.

Went there on a Friday night just before 5pm. The place was just getting busy and we got a booth for four of us right away. Two of us ordered the Cioppino, it had clams, mussels, scallops and shrimp over choice of pasta. We asked if the chef could make it spicier, Diavlo style and they did. It was fantastic,... More
