    We LOVE The Clam! It consistency delivers great food, service and atmosphere. When I look around the restaurant, the guests seem happy and all the food presentations are beautiful. Favorites: home made chips and clam dip, spaghetti and clams, clam sliders, halibut, Brussels sprouts, and all the desserts.

    The food was excellent as was the service. The clam chowder was nicely creamy with a lot of clam chunks with a nice crunch with the crackers in it and salted just right (not too salty). The clam and lobster sliders were a perfect combination of taste and texture with each bite. Each time I have been here to eat the same has been true. I have been able to rely upon the scrumptious meal to be gotten as can be attested to by my lunch companion in his first time eating at The Clam.

    The ClamResponded on November 19, 2022Wow, thank you so much for such an astounding review! I am so glad to learn how much you enjoyed your food, the kitchen team will be over the moon!

    From start to finish our evening at The Clam delighted us. I indicated on the reservation that it was my husband’s birthday. As soon as we were seated and settled, our waiter Pierre appeared with two glasses of champagne, compliments of the restaurant . What a classy move! Pierre timed our courses perfectly and each was delicious, bursting with flavor, and presented beautifully. We ordered dessert and Pierre brought out a second birthday dessert to cap off our celebration! The Clam is a beautiful restaurant, serving amazing food and cocktails (I almost forgot to mention my jalapeño infused tequila delight!) , with staff who are courteous, personable, and aiming to make your experience a special one. Just an excellent dining spot!

    Ordered the peach and burrata salad. Was delish. My lunch mate and I both ordered the crispy tacos which was dry with no taste. Very disappointing. My negative review is mostly regarding the service. The waiter barely tolerated our presence and seemed annoyed to serve us. We were one of three parties having lunch on a Wednesday so he wasn't busy. Just unfriendly. He spoiled the experience for me.

    The service was outstanding. Sometimes you judge a restaurant by how it recovers. We were getting incredible service up until the main course. The waiter came over and said main order got misplaced. immediately he came over with a drink on him. They brought us another appetizer to fill in. Once dinner arrived it was excellent. During dessert they provided us a Panna Cotta. Restaurants have issues but the way they treated us was just perfect. The clam is one of my favorite spots and it just went up in my eyes!!Highly recommended!!$

    A really lovely restaurant, service was amazing. We had some oysters to start along with potato chips with a lovely dip. Then we both had the clam spaghetti and I have to say it was the best spaghetti I have ever had (which I told the chef on the way to the loo). Thoroughly recommended.
