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!!!

You will not be disappointed. I have been twice now and have found the whole experience very pleasant. There is a great selection of craft beer and sushi. The wine selection is minimal but works. The Thai fry hogfish is the best thing going if available, by you have to ask. Albeit a little noisy if you sit out front,... More

We have eaten here several times. Hands down great place. The Thai Fry Fish is the best! Not spicy as you would expect from the word Thai, just really fresh, locally caught fish, flash fried and served whole. Delish!

Absolutely fresh fish. They have their own clam farm, but serve all kinds of fish. Always have a fish of the day which they prepare cooked whole. Wonderful.

Well as we drove up, we thought, oksy, just a very local place. Eh !! Once seated, the server was most helpful and their unique fresh fish is presented by weight on a clip board. Only so much available each day and selection based on what was caught. WOW it was so GOOD. Nothing like fresh when it comes to... More

The fresh seafood is great, there is nothing bad on the menu. The clam chowder is to die for. In addition they have a great choice of draft beers. For those hard of hearing the restaurant can be a little noisy.
