Started below average with a lukewarm cup of unremarkable NE clam chowder. Went downhill from there with a haddock sandwich which was small, flat (less than an inch thick), overcooked, overpriced (more than 9 bucks!), and tasting of ammonia (due to being old) all on...More

The service was great and so was the food! The bartender did a great job keeping us laughing and our glasses full. The food was amazing. The casual atmosphere was perfect for relaxing and unwinding. Will be going back next time I come to town.

I stopped by here during a stay in Syracuse. The place is definitely popular with locals and I can see why. Staff was friendly and service was prompt. I had the Haddock with crab that was very flavorful and the accompanying vegetables were very tasty.

Stopped here quickly before going to the airport. been here many times over the years but this visit will likely be my last. Not sure if server had anything to do with forgetting anything or not but food, definitely was not prepared well at all....More

I flew in to Syracuse on my way to a golf tournament. This popped up. Ordered fried clams and steamed clams. Both were great. Cooked properly and not chewy. I’m from Florida and eat clams regularly, these rank well with home.

Based on the reviews, I was expecting a little more than what I got. It may be a good seafood place by NY standards, but not by New England standards. I believe the onion rings were frozen, not fresh. Small portions. Waitstaff were friendly.

I think they have the best clams going. Always good. I have been there many times. I was in Syracuse recently and had a chance to have dinner there. Another great dinner.

The Clam Bar is one of those places that you might pass by, but it is one of the hidden gems for Seafood in the Syracuse area. The Chowder is the best in town. Service is always friendly. They have great selections for appetizers like...More
