Great local pub atmosphere, relatively quiet, excellent service, and the seafood is great. They've also added a cowboy rib eye to the menu and it is unbelievable! Great place to go with family and friends, not so pricey you have to save it for special occasions, but good for them too!

My parents and I have been patrons of this wonderful establishment since 2010 when we returned to Pennsylvania. My parents were long time patrons of the original clam tavern years ago. The food is wonderful and the service can be good or shakey depending who you get as a server we've encountered this when Tony isn't present. Tony Blanche the... More

My husband, five year old son, and I ate here on New Year's Eve. Our meal was excellent. The stuffed flounder was superb and I also really enjoyed my shrimp basket. It reminded me of my youth, when I used to come here and share this basket with my sister. The menu offers something for everyone and while the restaurant... More

Haven't been to the clam tavern in years, but thought we should check it out this past weekend. Firstly the owner is awesome. Called for reservations for ASAP and was told they would hold a table for 3 for me for 20 minutes. I live in the area. We were seated and within 2 minutes the owner came by and... More

Had dinner here Saturday night the place was packed glad we had reservations even a t 5:30. The food and service were great. We started off with Oysters Rockefeller which were great; my wife said it was the best she ever had. We also had the baked clams which were very good. I ordered the Seafood Pescatore with linguini in... More

The Clam Tavern is an amazing little place in Clifton Heights. By far the BEST baked clams and the Filet Special AMAZING I can honestly say I have never been disappointed!

The 6 of us went for a special occasion. I wanted to like it really did. After reading from other folks on here and the reviews were positive we thought we would give it a try. Reservations were strongly suggested some called. We asked for 630 but was told 7. Apparently it was not my option to pick the time... More

My husband found this place online and it was worth the trip. Clam tavern is exactly that a tavern. You can make reservations- recommended. We didn't have reservations but were able to get a table. The waitress was friendly, fast and efficient. We had questions about the menu and she was knowledgeable about what was on the menu. My husband... More

By far, the Best seafood restaurant in the Delco area. The owner, Tony, is often seen greeting his guests while they are feasting on a variety of seafood delights. The food is fresh and the waitstaff are friendly and efficient. My FAVORITE is the broiled scallops!!! The best I've ever had- and I return again and again for them!

Unless you are arriving before 4:30 p.m., I strongly recommend making a reservation. They will still love for you to come dine with them, but you'll be taking your chances on getting a table. This was a 15 minute or so drive from the Residence Inn Philadelphia Airport, but it was a nice drive through some pretty neighborhoods. I'm so... More
