Dine inside or out. Fire pit available. Besides their fresh clams and other fresh fish they have a fabulous cheeseburger. Drinks reasonably priced. Full bar. Friendly staff. Sushi available. For sides I like their cheese grits and their edamame.

We go to this restaurant often. We always order the Thai fry! This restaurant has some of the best food in the area! A hidden gem that is amazing! Clam House Salad is good and so are the cheese grits. Love this place!!!!!
