I grew up watching the television show "Cheers!" with my parents. I can still sing the opening tune and remember it like it was yesterday. Over the years, the Laughing Clam has become the Bullfinch Pub for me and many other people in Grants Pass. Friendly service, servers who know your name and come and talk to you. The food... More

Great food and atmosphere. It use to be an old motorcycle bar now turned restaurant with the old vintage bar still being used. The food is really great. Especially the fish tacos but you have to put the orange spicy sauce on them. That is what really makes them great! The servers are all nice. Friday and Sat they have... More

I recently stayed in Grants Pass while traveling from Washington to California. The young lady at the motel recommended The Laughing Clam as well as a few other restaurants. I decided to try The Laughing Clam and I was not disappointed. The wait person was so sweet and helpful. I was traveling alone but immediately felt comfortable and taken care... More

Love the atmosphere in this great little pit stop. So much fun on a Friday nite or First Friday in GP. The menu is diverse and although there are many fried foods on the menu, please do not be discouraged. Pick a seafood or seafood pasta dish. Very good.

Get there early, very popular but limited seating. It's located in an old bar down on historic G st. Friendly, good wait staff. Mixed crowd, hip, families, old and young. The food and beer is it's strong suit, it can get loud and crowded. Burgers, fish and chips and a surprisingly good pasta selection. If your hungry try the Seafood... More
