The Old Clam House
A meal at The Old Clam House starts with a shot of complimentary hot clam juice. It’ll prime you for all the sautéed shellfish, seafood pastas, creamy chowders, and other perfectly solid fish-forward specials you’ll consume at this Bayview seafood classic. The salty drink is a fitting start to dinner at the city’s oldest running restaurant in the same location (established in 1861), which heavily leans into the nautical theme. Oversized fish mounts, hanging fishing nets, and ocean-inspired photos and knickknacks might make you feel like you’re on a grand ship ready for an equally grand voyage. If not, the fish-themed silverware and vodka-infused clam shooters sure will.
