The Clam Bar is awesome. The clams in any form are the most tasty you will ever have. It has been around for awhile and the bartenders know everybody. It looks like a dive and is crowded inside, but it is one of the best...More

This place has been around for years. It is not the brightest place in the world, carpeting is dingy and light is dim. Food and Hospitality is fresh and great. I believe the hostess is the owner's wife. Very nice and attentive. The quarters are...More

I had the Butter Crumb Haddock. It was very thin for Haddock and had far too much liquid on it. Haddock in most restaurants in thick and flaky. It was mushy.

Family owned with reasonable prices and good seafood. Full bar steamed clams and good menu. Atmosphere was like eating waterside. Waitress was nice and knew menu by heart.

This suburban Syracuse Institution is located near the airport. Clams, prepared any way you like them, are the stars here: on the half shell, steamed, fried or in a chowder. Other seafood and shellfish include oysters and shrimp and haddock, all fried. Burgers and cheesesteaks...More

Unless you are a smoker or in a hurry, wait for a table inside. We sat outside only fifteen feet from Rt. 11 with car exhaust, noise and most likely lots of dust. The soft shell crab appetizer was excellent. Mahi mahi, broiled haddock and...More
