We enjoyed the Laughing Clam but for the service which was incredibly slow. It is a very busy and noisy place, more of a bar atmosphere than a family atmosphere. The food was good not great with generous portions. The service issue is the reason for the average rating.

This establishment is a regular lunch or dinner stop for us (mostly lunch). We mostly go for the fish and chips/coleslaw, but we have strayed to some of the sandwiches and they have uniformly been delightful. We have not their hamburgers. Best of all for one of us, the oyster shooters with a shot of vodka have been memorable. Really,... More

I always look for the best elusive beer batter shrimp - I make them myself but look for inspiration from the folks that do it all the time. My wife and I went to Grants Pass to see family and we stayed in a lodge that recommended the Laughing Clam for seafood and it was in was walking distance. It... More

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.
