I have reviewed this place before and the quality remains consistent. I highly recommend asking if they will make haddock carbonara, it is delicious and they are highly accommodating when they can. The scallops were steamed to perfection and a generous portion. Most importantly, our dinners were served HOT. The atmosphere is rather run down but food, yummy food makes... More

We have been going to the Clam Bar for years! Without exception, our food has been served by friendly, courteous and knowledgable staff and while the menu doesn't change much it is always very good! The seafood is always fresh, the steaks are excellent and the prices are fair and reasonable. Waiting for a table is always worth it and... More

Our friends from the area asked to meet us here and we are so happy that they did. This place is great! Down to earth, GREAT food with exceptional service! The place was packed for lunch but the way the booths are set, I swear we were in our own little place. We sat right across from the bar but... More

Local place with a pretty good menu. Fried Haddock is a house speciality and well worth the calorie splurge. Nice, friendly waitstaff and bartender. Five TV'S with sports in the bar.

We ate at the Clam Bar this month while meeting in Syracuse, and enjoyed another fine meal there. Perhaps the only problem we experienced was getting six of us together at a single table, because the place is small and cannot easily accommodate larger groups, but we did get it to work. The food here is always really good. Not... More

great little hole-in-the-wall local joint. food is good and not too expensive. it's always busy there, and the menu is pretty extensive for the compact size of the place. it's obviously a local hangout.

My wife and I live in Maine and visit Boston MA and other shore areas in New England often. Believe it or not, this up-state NY restaurant has BETTER Clams Casino than we have found anywhere near home! We always order them a single dozen at time, split the serving to keep them coming hot and make a meal out... More
