Very local - most friendly - easy laid back enjoyable and comfortable. Ask for the "clip board" with today's fresh catch. These fish are usually scored and Thai-fried (hope I got that right).... delicious only scratches the surface. Eat to your hearts delight. We consider Clam House one of our top "local finds" in our travels around coastal areas.

This place has amazingly fresh seafood prepared in a creative style. Try the ceviche, thai-style hog fish, steamed garlic-clams and sushi. The staff and crowd is friendly too.

My husband and I truly enjoyed our dinner here. Prices were higher than we usually pay, but every bite was worth every penny. We had Coconut shrimp as an appetizer and the shrimp was moist and sweet.

I've gone to this place for years on our annual trip to Palmetto FL. I have always found it to be exceptional. This year the sushi was not nearly as good Or fresh As I remember. The tomato salad is exceptional. Will try it again next year

Good selection of seafood entrees. All in party were well satisfied. Not well priced for someone on a tight budget but also not the MOST expensive place in town. All items were definitely fresh and correctly prepared.

I have been meaning to stop here for over a year. It's right in downtown Palmetto. The clientel feels like they are all friends or could be. The place is clean but a little dark. Tuesday is pretty busy but no wait. The clam broth chowder is very good but I am not sure fits all tastes. Shame. It is... More

Tonight was my 4th visit, so I obviously like The Clam House overall. It's a wonderfully local place with the friendly quality of service to match. The food quality has always been spot on as well, however they need to step back and look at their offerings from a balance perspective, as the menu is a bit like playing the... More

My fish portion was smaller than some appetizers, the princess to much for what you get ! The owner is his best guest 🍻He doesn't treat people with respect . I am not going back. There are a lot better places I can go to!!!
