The Clam Bar food is great and always consistent. The staff is super friendly and efficient. Because it is BYOB, the wait outside is a bonus to enjoy the sun setting, the fresh air off the bay and to meet friendly people. All entrees are...More

We have been visiting the Clam Bar since it opened I believe in 1973. Last week we took an old friend there for dinner. We only waited 20 or 30 minutes for a table. We all had the NE Chowder which was good as usual...More

Be prepared to wait with a chilled bottle of rose. This place never disappoints. The prices have creeped up a bit but still a great value for quality food. Don't delay...go right now!

We ate lunch here for the first time recently and it was very good. We only had the fried clam strips and french fries but both were good. I am not a fan of fried food but I would have those fried clam strips again...More

Unfortunately, Smittys Clam Bar doesn't open until 4:30. People come in to the parking lot early and wait unail they open their doors. There are breakfast hours in the same building from 7 to 12
