The Bearded Clam Does Buffets the Waterside Way!
The Bearded Clam Waterfront Restaurant & Tiki Bar was at the center of the action during the Fourth Annual NBOA Gulf Coast Open Fishing Tournament and Big Pig Shootout this past May, with a hot off the grill waterside menu. The three-day NBOA-sponsored Profeszsional Offshore and Inshore fishing event had many of the best fishermen and fishing teams in the Eastern United States with numerous out of town spectators, and that meant the Clam, located on the waterfront at the Ramada Waterfront, worked extra hard to keep all well-fed, hydrated and entertained. What a success!
Visit the “Bearded Clam” on Facebook for the official photo gallery and to see the fresh “catch” of upcoming events. After all, from Luaus to social events and holiday festivities, the Clam always has a reason to celebrate and does so with décor, music, special holiday buffets and daily dinner and drink deals. Event buffet-style menus may feature items such as a feast of crab legs, shrimp, fish burritos, spicy sausage, red potatoes and corn on the cob for under $20 per person.
Just in time for Mother's Day, the Bearded Clam has it all figured out! Come to our place where everyone can enjoy themselves. Lay back and watch the kids by the pool, catch the ocean breeze with a cold drink and fantastic eats. What a way to spend your day!
