We eat at restaurants with some frequency and the Clam House is one of our favorites. The Thai Fry is always outstanding as is the Sunset Roll. Dress is casual and staff and other diners are friendly. Don't miss it if you are in the area. Lloyd Spear

A wonderful restaurant near the convention center. I hate to give away this hidden gem. They like their customers and appreciate your business. The food was delicious,the fresh fish was perfect, the tomato salad was terrific, the clam appetizer great, the drinks strong. Strongly recommend you try this place.

The Clam House is off the beaten path a little bit but once you find it you will find your way back. The food and service are outstanding. The fish is as fresh as you can get and they have a great selection of beers.

We stopped in to The Clam House absolutely starving after a visit to the nearby Ellenton Outlet Stores. It did NOT disappoint as we had found it online and it was listed as the #2 best restaurant in the area. It may be #2 in that part of Florida, but it was one of the best restaurants I've ever been...

We have been here before for some fun family dinners, and this visit was yet another great meal. The atmosphere was localand fun, but a bit loud. We had some wonderful sushi. The shrimp and grits dish was equally superb. I highly recommend this restaurant for a treaty supper.

Welcoming staff. Good basic wine and beer selections. Coconut shrimp was great. Reasonable priced. Recommend reservations on weekend in-season.

While visiting Palmetto, relatives took me to dinner here on a Saturday night about 5:45 pm. It was busy and crowded inside but we were able to get a table in less than five minutes. There also was a short wait for others when we left. Two of us had the 10 piece fried shrimp dinner with two sides and... More
