We went to dinner for 1st time and it was very good, the food, service, etc you can't go wrong. I had the signature Thai fry dish based on our waitress Betsy's recommendation and it was excellent. All the fish, clams, etc are fresh, they raise their own clams and catch their fish daily. We all enjoyed our meals and... More

If you love fresh seafood and especially clams this place is the one for you. I had the clam chowder made their way with outstanding taste and not all cream. The clams in garlic appetizer is also highly recommended as are the stuffed clams. They also have some great exotic drinks. Only negative is the loud base from the radio... More

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...
