Went here for a casual date night and it was really good! We went early so we were seated right away in the bar area. We ordered the clam bar's famous wings and their Mexican lime wings. The reason I gave this review "very good"...More

Thank you fit the kind words. We do not normally do half orders of wings as we preprep some menu items and the time it takes to separate the orders. This is to help my kitchen staff streamline all orders to all customers in a...More

This small restaurant has great food! Awesome specials. Sometimes this place is very crowded but the service is good and we have never had a bad meal. Definitely worth a visit!

A bunch of us enjoy coming back to this place over and over again, as the food is reliably good. This visit, the appetizers were still quite tasty (including the crab cakes and the bacon-wrapped scallops). However, my entree was broiled scallops, and they were...More

This is the best seafood restaurant in Syracuse. The seafood here is very fresh and tender. If you have to wait give your name to the hostess. She will find you when a table comes available. Go to the bar and have a drink or...More

Walking in it is small and looks like a dive bar. We were pleasantly surprised with the service, cleanliness and amazing food. It was upscale food, had variety of options and was affordable. I got the clam chowder and linguine and white clam sauce. The...More

Great food and service. Been there the last few times I have been in town for work. Only downside that I'll remember to avoid in the future is the high top table next to the door. Annoying....would have been worth the extra 10 minute wait...More
