Very crowded on a Tuesday night, but they did their best to give us a semi-private table. The food was very good. Don't let the modest outside appearance fool you, eat here you'll thank me. Really like the seafood. The service was almost too much. Our waitress came back to the table and was almost disruptive when "checking in" on... More

We went on a Tuesday night and they were packed! We waited about 20 minutes for a table. The server was attentive and the food was very good! I ordered one of the specials. It was blue crab ravioli with scallops and shrimp in a mushroom vodka sauce. It was reasonably priced and delicious!

I stopped in for lunch in Sept 2015. This is a small building, but had more seating than I thought. I was seated immediately by a very pleasant waitress. The place has a 70's decor, which I found interesting. I had clam chowder and a dozen steamers for lunch. They were both very good and an inexpensive lunch. Food was... More

We were looking for something different in Syracuse. The Clam Bar was very popular on a Friday night. We waited at least 1/2 hour and our table was cramped for 4 people plus a toddler. Food was delicious, service was good. We would go back - but maybe not on a Friday night.

A few of us went here for dinner on Tuesday night after our meeting....we got in without a wait, which is always nice. The fried oyster appetizers were wonderful, and my scallops (broiled) were also superb. One of the guys didn't care for the smell of his fish, so the restaurant graciously exchanged it for another dish. Everything else was... More

The name tells you that they specialize in seafood but they also offer steaks and pastas.They have dinner plates, salads, sandwiches, and appetizers. There is a children's menu. They have a full bar with specialty cocktails. The wines and beers seemed limited with very little emphasis on locally produced ones. They do offer bottle and draft beers. I had an... More

Just left after satisfying dinner for all. Accomodating, if not dazzling service. Great prices on upstate seafood with no pretentiousness. Manhattan Clam Chowder as a special was the only bust- beef broth flavor with no tomato brightness. Shoulda tried the award-winning New England Chowder. Will go back on next dinner-time Hancock Airport pick-up.

The chowder is delish, the fish always tastes fresh, and the service is good. They have something for everyone. I especially love the Linguini with Clam sauce. You get fresh clams over pasta that is amazing.
