“Well Worth the Trouble to Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

How about excellent fresh seafood served by a family that really does remember who you are when you walk through the door? Take the time to find this gem that prides itself on good fresh food served by a family that cares. The Clam Chowder (served REALLY hot), Lobster Roll, Halibut and the Clam Strips are among our favorites. Equally matched by fresh sides. And yes, you can have a beer or a glass of wine too.

Excellent lunch and early a dinner specials that are slightly smaller bur represent a wonderful a value for a your a money.

We can't wait to come back time and time again during Season. Seven years old and still going strong. Way to go Mark and Laurie!

“Love this little seafood restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The Clam bake isn't big on ambiance - but it is fantastic on service & food quality! The Lobster roll is always a great pick! The fried haddock is one of our favorites -we always ask for the dinner to be cut into "haddock fingers" they are SO fresh - just love them. Mark & Laurie and the whole crew at The Clam Bake are super friendly and we go there often - we feel like family! It's a great little restaurant!

We are from Massachusetts and it is really hard to get clams in Beautiful Fort Myers but my husband found this place and we tried it. The chowder is absolutely delicious and the clams are real New England clams........Great place!

“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to try Clam Bake. This place is a hidden gem. All employees were friendly and helpful. I opted for the lobster roll and lobster bisque. It was excellent. My husband and boys had the clam chowder, as well as shrimp, haddock, and clam strips. We loved everything. Clam Bake is a must for anyone in close vicinity!
