Cherrystone Clams

Is there a raw bar anywhere in the Orlando/Daytona area that serves raw Cherrystone Clams on the half shell? God I miss them from when I lived in the Mid-Atlantic area!

  1. We've been in Orlando four years and have not found them. You will find them on Cedar Key in the Big Bend area.

      Damn that sucks! :( They blow away oysters in my opinion.

    2. Millers Ale House serves clams on the half shell, but they tend to be on the small side (we go to the Ale House in Altamonte). If you are a member of Costco, every once and a while they get bags of decent size clams in from Cedar Key for shuck-your-own. Unfortunately, you don't see many true raw bars around here that serve cherrystones on the half shell.
