The Old Clam House

The Old Clam House

When you can’t get to Sausalito but you still want a sizzling platter of garlicky Dungeness crab, check out The Old Clam House, which is owned by the same folks as Salito’s. Much of the menu is similar (and equally consistent in quality), but you’ll also find the famous complimentary cup of clam broth — or as I call it, “liquid gold.” The Old Clam House has one of the best prix-fixe deals in town: a cup of clam chowder or a side salad and your choice of entrée for $14.95. Standouts include the plate-filling calamari steak doré (lightly egg battered and served in the traditional butter-lemon sauce) and shrimp scampi. For $24.95, try the sizzling crab legs, seafood cioppino, or sand dabs (petite and sweet, sand dabs are one of my favorite local fishes). For starters, try the escargot (made with clams instead of snails).

Tip: Check out the $9.95 weekend breakfast.

Not to Miss: Sizzling platters, roasted crab, calamari steak doré, crab Louie, clam linguine, clams escargot
