This restaurant is known for their fish and chips, but greasy, greasy fries and fish. Crowded and noisy. They have a good selection of beers

Get there early, very popular but limited seating. It's located in an old bar down on historic G st. Friendly, good wait staff. Mixed crowd, hip, families, old and young. The food and beer is it's strong suit, it can get loud and crowded. Burgers, fish and chips and a surprisingly good pasta selection. If your hungry try the Seafood... More

We loved the ambiance - classic old bar, brick walls, and just right lighting. Two of us shared a tuna salad and catfish sandwich and we were comfortably full. The service was fast and friendly, the food was tasty and the price was right. We were really happy with our choice!

Went there for dinner with my daughter – good food and great experience – and then again with my guy for lunch. The service was wonderful, the food delicious and large portions, which we like, and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. Prices are good, too. No complaints – we love it and will definitely go back probably more frequently... More

Plenty of locals recommend it, plenty of choices on the menu. Had the a combo platter, good quality seafood, a little under seasoned. Overall a good visit.

Following the comments on Trip Advisor, we checked it out. What an awesome restaurant and bar in an old building in downtown. Even though it was lunch time, my husband ordered a Bloody Mary, which I usually detest. This thing was filled with all kind of wonderful veges like onions and green beans with lemon and lime. I had to... More

The Laughing Clam is one of those places you take out of town guests. Located in the heart of the historic district, you get a glimpse of the old western town. A beautiful ornate old bar hosts a great selection of local micro-brews as well as domestic beers. My absolute favorite thing to order are the fish tacos and slaw!... More

Went there with friends and family, it took awhile for a waitress even to approach the table. Once we placed our drink orders it took another while before we were served beer and one glass of wine. It took another 20 minutes before we were able to place our order. When the orders arrived they were cold and over cooked,... More

The Laughing Clam has a pub-like feel and offers a nice variety of local micro-brews. The food was decent, plentiful, and reasonably priced. My wife and I shared the stuffed mushroom appetizer which was quite tasty. I am a fish and chips fan so ordered the cod fish and chips. It was not the best I've had, but I thought... More
