You just have to have the Thai Fish Fry. It smelled so good and after the 1st little bit, I dug in and didn’t stop until the bones shined. We also love the hush puppies. They will change your life! You have to try this...More

We were told by friends that the Clam House in Palmetto served great seafood. We went to try the food and we were very pleased. The outward appearance was not inviting but we were given a very nice table in a screened in dining room....More

Menu looked good so we thought we’d give it a try. Won’t be back. Service was slow. Food wasn’t hot and it took forever to get our check!

Great local hole-in-the-wall seafood place checks off all the boxes. Full bar, great service —ask for Adam! We’ve been over a dozen times and all servers are “good”, but Adam works like an “owner”. You must try the Tai Fry. A whole fish is scored,...More

Grilled fresh Amber Jack was a winner at our table. Clam strips also good. Sides were tastier than other competing seafood joint. Eager to go back.
