We lived in St Pete for years and used to frequent the Casual Clam at least once or twice a week. We just moved back to the area and this was our first visit back, All I can say is WOW the staff, food & Decor has 100% improved, keep up the great work and Thanks Robbie for taking care of our table and doing a great job. Sincerely, Siena

Casual Clan falters from being a hidden gem off the beaten path and rather succeeds as an almost fast-food greasy spoon cafe with a seafood theme. If you go, beware, don’t order anything fried. The fried fish is nothing more than frozen fish sticks. Grilled shrimp was the winner of all the meals ordered from our lunch yesterday. This place is like the “the little train that could”. So much potential- so far to go.

It was a gorgeous weather day in St. Pete so we decided to come here and eat outside.

I had the Fried Scallops and my husband had Fried Clams along with a Bowl of New England Clam Chowder. The chowder tasted like flour paste. While the scallops and clams tasted OK while eating, we both came down with severe heartburn that lasted over 6 hours.

We love spicy hot food and every so often will eat fried food and never had any problems eating such so we know it was not our digestive systems. It was the food!

Our server Kristy should not be a server. The restaurant was not that busy but maybe she spent a total of 2 minutes with us from the time we sat down, to the time we asked for the check and got tired of waiting for her return so took it up to the bar to pay. We tip well when the service warrants it and when it doesn't, we tip less. In this instance, Kristy earned NO TIP.

Between the food and service, we won't go back.

We like the lobster rolls, but anything fried there is just way over the top greasy. The food needs to be drained better, really.
