The Original Clam Tavern is a cozy place to stop by and have a nice dinner. The food is fresh and plentiful. You can have surf and turf, or whatever else you want. They serve mixed drinks or beer. It's a neighborhood place, and fun to go to.

The Clam Tavern has the best food in the universe! You cannot get a bad meal here. Everything is fresh and delicious. Tony Blanche welcomes all patrons personally. The service is excellent and the food and drinks are first -rate. The Clam is head and shoulders above all competitors. It gets a superlative rating!

I've heard great things about this place and was expected to be blown away by the seafood and I just wasn't. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything that would make me drive out of my way again either. It was just decent. I ordered lobster raviolis and it was huge. The sauce it was in was good.

My wife, adult son, and I went to the Clam Tavern for the very first time two weekends ago. Upon entering, we were taken aback by its relatively small size. The bar is quite large, though, and takes up maybe a third of the available space. This is not a bad thing. It's just an observation. A young woman who... More

Great local pub atmosphere, relatively quiet, excellent service, and the seafood is great. They've also added a cowboy rib eye to the menu and it is unbelievable! Great place to go with family and friends, not so pricey you have to save it for special occasions, but good for them too!

My parents and I have been patrons of this wonderful establishment since 2010 when we returned to Pennsylvania. My parents were long time patrons of the original clam tavern years ago. The food is wonderful and the service can be good or shakey depending who you get as a server we've encountered this when Tony isn't present. Tony Blanche the... More

My husband, five year old son, and I ate here on New Year's Eve. Our meal was excellent. The stuffed flounder was superb and I also really enjoyed my shrimp basket. It reminded me of my youth, when I used to come here and share this basket with my sister. The menu offers something for everyone and while the restaurant... More

Called for reservations for ASAP and was told they would hold a table for 3 for me for 20 minutes. I live in the area. We were seated and within 2 minutes the owner came by and... More
