    Great place. The inside seating area has a lot of character in the decorations. The photos by my table were of old school scuba divers. Super cool. The service was friendly and fast. Two of us shared the clam chowder for an appetizer. It was a large cup or a small bowl. It has a bread bowl option that we didn’t try but I did dip my bread slices into the chowder. It was great. We had a squid ink pasta with clams and the cioppino for mains. The pasta was fresh and well made. The sauce had a lot of clams. The cioppino was amazing. It has a good mixture of clams, mussels, and calamari with a hearty serving of fish and prawns to fill you up. Very good. Would come back for a low key night with friend and would bring my family here.

    So much history and atmosphere. And now that it’s owned by Maurizio and Filomena Florese (of Mona Lisa & Mona Lisa, Mare e Monte fame,) the food is better than ever!!

    So old school and quaint. The food was delicious. Service was attentive and perfect for a date. They were knowledgeable on dishes that are gluten free and they have gluten free pasta.

    Dinner was good. It was packed and our poor server had too many tables. He made the best of it.

    We hadn’t been to The Clam House in 15 years and it was every bit as good as we remebered. The menu is terrific, the ambiance in the old and historic building was great and the food and service was top notch. We will be back soon.

    The food and service are great, but it's the ambiance that I still especially love here. So glad the "new" owners kept the historical vibe intact. Will return again and again!

    Our experience surpassed our expectations. We used to come here in the 80's and always enjoyed it. Today, from greeting us, to the food, til the end of our meal everything was suberb. The food was of great quality and good portions. Our Bloody Sharks were amazing! We'll be back!

    The waiter was very nice and professional. The food was basically good. Just expected more from a place that’s been around this long.
