We loved the "Clam" until this evening when we were asked to leave by the owner Tony. We have been regulars at this cozy seafood establishment for quite a number of years (through great and less than good food wise). Our average bill for four is usually between $150 - $200 not including cash tip of 20%. This evening Tony (owner) asked us to leave because we had a 6 pm reservation and it was now 7:45pm. Having been in the restaurant business for many years we found this insulting and totally unprofessional! Unfortunately the food this evening was the best ever! We were even preparing to schedule a birhtday party for our 92 year old mother. Not going to happen! Au revior Tony! The Wait Staff is the BEST!!!!!!

My husnaband and I heard a lot of good things about this place, so we gave it a try. It definately has a seashore atmosphere and the staff was friendly and outgoing. The food was pretty good but the prices were out of line with the area. We'll go to center city next time we want to spend that much. Probably won't return

I have never had a bad meal and trust me, I have been here way too many times! Tony, the owner is always a great host and checks on his customers personally. The staff also is very nice and professional.

The Clam is a must, especially if you love seafood!

The prices are a bit high but the food was excellent. I also found the waitresses to be extremely nice. It is a small place and does not look like much from the outside but it is a place you must try.

The Clam Tavern has been here for years. I guess that is why they are still in business. The food is tasty and fresh. I was pleased with my meal. I would recommend this restaurant.

Great prices, Great service. I very much enjoy the broiled seafood platter. I suggest start off with shrimp cocktail, followed by clam chowder and seafood platter. If you have room for dessert, enjoy.

Their clam chowder is cheap and delicious. I'll keep going back! They have a great mix of fried and broiled seafood, chicken, pasta, apps and desserts. There's sure to be something for everyone. The lobster ravioli are great! They top it with lump crab meat. Yum.

We went here on a Saturday night at five o'clock. Both the waitress and the owner were unspeakably rude and disrespectful. Prices were sky-high, especially for such a down-and-out location. Seating was cramped and tight and people could easily overhear everyone else's conversation at the adjacent tables. Overall, I was highly disappointed. I didn't get the meal I asked for nor the apology I deserved.

We have been customers for over 20 years. The food is always good and the service is friendly. I've yet to get a better crab imperial (outside of the shore points of course!)

I went to this restaurant with my family. There were 6 of us total. The food was nothing short of delicious. Everything was impeccable! (sorry if the spelling is wrong!)

I would check this place to see when they had specials. We got an appetizer of mussels for $1.00 and dessert was $.50!

My only complaint is that the tables are a little close together so I got bumped into once or twice. But the food was so good that it did not bother me!

We have gone to Clam Tavern for the past 8 years for New Year's Eve dinner. What a great place to go to eat and the prices and the portions are just right. Always clean and well lit, it is an awesome eat. The wait staff is very experienced and always friendly. Their specials are always awesome and they always taste great. Don't forget to order your Steamers! YUM.

PROS: Price, Clean, Friendly.
CONS: None to mention.

I've been going to the Original Clam Tavern for about 4 years, at the recommendation of our neighbors in Drexel Hill. I'm so glad they made that recommendation! As a picky seafood eater, with a husband who loves seafood, I have been hard-pressed to find a place that serves good portions, at a good price and that has FRESH Seafood. Well, this place does it right!

I would recommend almost anything on the menu, however, i usually go with the mussels or calamari to share then the Fried flounder platter. These have always been great! My husband usually likes the Mahi Mahi or Tilapia and they too never disappoint. The wait staff has always been nice and efficient to us, and the plus is that the owner always comes around to the tables to see how people are doing. On top of that, the place is clean! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for decent seafood!

I was with family and my son and I were the only vegetarians in the group. Come to think of it, we were probably the only vegetarians this place has EVER had, by the way we were treated. The waitress was inexplicably rude and so was the owner when I pointed out that my so-called "pasta primavera" had bits of seafood. I expressly asked the waitress for a meat-and-seafood-free pasta but my wishes were ignored. Even worse, I was all but called a liar when I pointed out the mistake. Prices are astronomical and seating is tight and cramped. Go somewhere else to dine out--anywhere but here.

Cons: service, sky-high prices, cramped seating

PROS: Our waitress was very friendly and attentive.

CONS: The restaurant was extremely cold.
Salad was served in very small dollar store bowls with way to
much dressing.
The cold air in the room chilled our slightly warm plates quickly
which led to our food being cold within 5 minutes.
Prices are VERY HIGH in a blue collar area.
Food was served on cold Formica table tops which also led to
the coldness of our meal.
Waitress were wearing thermal long sleeve shirts under their
waitress "T"shirts.
It was a horrible feeling to pay hard earned money for a terrible
experience.
I highly recommend you save your money and go elsewhere
if you want to celebrate any occasion.

PS: To the owner(s) PUT THE DAMN HEAT ON, WILL YA!!
