We love the atmosphere at The Clam House and the food and presentation are excellent! We usually go every week. Have yet to have a bad experience after eating there for 3 years. Great choice for large parties or an intimate dinner.

The "tropical grouper" they are serving this month is AMAZING. There is nothing better than getting black grouper right off the boat! Husband always has the Thai Fry and loves it as much. I had a regular martini that was a fabulous as I have ever had. Adam is our go-to server. Very friendly and helpful. This is now our... More

This is an eclectic restaurant that never disappoints. We love that it is tucked away and casual, but the food is anything but casual. You can get a whole fried fish, to sushi, to clams. If you are not a seafood person, you might want to sit this one out; it is truly for the seafood lover. Fish and clams... More

This is a great little seafood restaurant in Palmetto. They have an excellent selection of beers and wine. They specialize in whole fried Snapper. Thai style. The Cucumber Thai salad is delicious and they farm their own clams..So weather permitting order the clam strips always. Best clams I've ever had and I'm a native.

I stopped here with my family at the end of a very long road trip. Wednesday night in July and there were plenty of people. Our server Savannah was polite and efficient. The Sushi my wife and son ordered took a while to arrive but was delicious and worth the wait. I didn't order the specialty thai fried fish but... More

Came here as a result of suggestion from our charter boat captain. Unique atmosphere. Guess they are famous for their "Thai fry" but with only 3 fish left for the night starting at $32, we skipped it. Think we had a bad experience after arriving 30 min before close, but still...shouldn't have happened. One warm Corona, two out of four... More

I've been here 3 times while visiting family. This place has great sushi!!! My favorite was called the volcano. Friendly staff and good martinis. The rooms are dark but I don't mind.

It does not look like much from the outside - but do not let that stop you from enjoying a GREAT meal!!! The staff are very friendly - the food was fresh and tasty. You must try the Thai fried fish! I went out of my comfort zone on this - and could not have been happier that I did.... More

Went with a group of friends for a night out. This is a good restaurant with a variety of fresh seafood and Sushi. They have the Thai Fry available with many varieties of fish listed on their menu.
