I’d been waiting since March for this seated meal out.
And for the shrimp scampi from The Clam Bar in North Syracuse, too.
This joint is practically hidden on the big Route 11 strip, modest for sure.
I’m not ready for eating inside anywhere yet.
But a handful of tables in the great outdoors, yes, I feel like we can handle this safely distanced.
Our masked waitress was quite pleasant.
My aforementioned (and photographed) shrimp dish was fine.
Hover over a gallery photo for an enlarged slide show.
Here’s the rest of the meals enjoyed by my dear wife Karen, terrific daughter Elisabeth and sensational George Three on a fantastic Father’s Day late afternoon. Salad, bread, crab cake sandwich, golden platter, steak and cheese sandwich. Beer. Yum.
I must disclose that the steak and cheese plate had to be sent back because Elisabeth noted suspicious green mold on the bun. The waitress gladly brought out a whole new plate and expressed her disappointment at the discovery and delay. No discounts were taken from the bill … they must make up for the long closure from COVID-19, yes.
This will not deter me from going back for more from The Clam Bar.
