Wow the place is immaculate. The fresh clams on a half shell were ice cold and master shucker cut them open in seconds!!! The fried calamari was soft tender and fried perfectly and the sauce was indescribably delicious

This place is not long on atmosphere, but that is ok because I go here for the clams oreganata. The cherrystone clams were better than the little neck but all were good. We also enjoyed the shrimp parmigiana.

I was a fry cook for years, the motto of any fry guy understandably should be "golden brown." On my 50th birthday I found myself craving a good fried seafood platter, and everyone said this was the place. So I went down, menu looked amazing, figured this was the place for it, especially considering it was 29 bucks, I was... More

The crab cake and oyster sandwiches were very good as well as the service. The fried zucchini was exceptional. Very casual. Would definitely go back.

I visited it Randazzos on a business lunch. The food was outstanding! The fried calamari was delicious! Fresh and tastes great. We ordered Oysters also and they were really delicious too! I would definitely go back when I am in Brooklyn!

Heard a lot of good things about this place, but never been there. Decided to walk in in a hot summer day for beer and calamari. Nothing fancy inside, interior is very plain but food was delicious. Besides calamari ordered cherry stone raw clams and then naked clams with medium sauce. Got older waitress that was not too fast and... More

Being originally from Brooklyn I always make a stop to Randazzo's in Sheepshead Bay when visiting family. They have never disappoint me serving up the absolute best Fried Calamari with medium sauce I have ever eaten anywhere. If you are ever in Brooklyn be sure to stop there. Highly recommend!

I grew up in Brooklyn all my younger years and went to Kings Borough Community College too. This place was an iconic place when I was a kid. It had quite the reputation, which is why when I found myself in Brooklyn for a business meeting I figured I'd treat myself. Well it turned out to be quite disappointing. Frankly,... More

This is the best clam bar in New York. The sauce is definitely the best. I have been eating here for 30 years and I alway enjoy the food and service.

Best clam bar in Brooklyn. I come straight here as soon as I get off the plane. Ask for grace. She is fun and efficient. Baked clams, and calamari are my favorite. Just tried the collousul shrimp and they were great. Pasta is always cooked to perfection but the sauce makes everything that much better.

Thank roeroe605
