My friends and I decided to head to The Clam House for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon, arriving at around 2 PM. The timing was spot on as we didn't have to wait for a table. The restaurant was comfortably quiet, allowing the servers to efficiently attend to each table's needs. The individual attention was a great touch, and we could see the staff effortlessly multitasking as they grilled a variety of seafood at different tables.
Parking worries are a common concern, but not at The Clam House. There's ample parking space available at the back, relieving us of any concerns about finding a spot for our vehicles.
The menu is refreshingly straightforward, offering four options labeled A, B, C, and D. Depending on the party size, we opted for the grand Combo D at $174.99. This extravagant feast included an array of mouthwatering dishes: Sashimi salad, pancakes, steamed eggs, mayonnaise corn, manila clams, cherry stone clam, mussels, live abalone, squid, scallops soup, shrimp, scallops, marinated scallops, oysters, baby octopus, hogfish, live octopus, kalguksu, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. For our group of four ladies and one gentleman, this lunch spread was just right. However, I'd recommend considering ordering more if you have a larger party or if you're planning to dine for dinner.
The standout stars of our meal were undoubtedly the live octopus, cherry stone clam, live abalone, and oysters. Each bite was a burst of freshness and sweetness that truly showcased the quality of the seafood.
