The Mansion Clam House

Mansion Clam House                                                                                                                                                                                   541 Riverside Ave… Westport, Ct

The Mansion Clam House is located on the Saugatuck River just north of the Saugatuck draw bridge, which is the northern section of Westport harbor. We have been going to the Mansion for many years and are always amazed how good the food is year after year. We have especially enjoyed the friendly staff and that old time fish house atmosphere and the little New England seaport feel of Saugatuck village. The testimonials below pretty much say it all.


Checked this place out on a whim after searching Yelp for “Clams” in Westport CT. WOW, what a great surprise the BEST fried calamari EVER. We also had steamer clams (amazing) and twin lobster special (super sweet “chick” lobsters). Absolutely amazing, fresh, super simple seafood. Our party also, had one of each type of clam “chowdah” Manhattan, New England and Rhode Island, a bit too much thyme, but excellent. Totally recommended, this is a place for seafood in an old fashion new england style tavern.

Clam House is our favoriteWestportrestaurant, especially after a day on the beach. We eat here regularly enjoying fresh seafood, pasta, steak or chicken as well as delicious steamers and mussels. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. There is even outdoor dining in the summer. The staff is always welcoming, friendly and efficient. We often bring friends and relatives to the Mansion for celebrations. Everyone loves it. If you want a great restaurant, delicious meals and a menu to satisfy everyone in your party, Mansion Clam House is the perfect choice.

We came upon this lovely place on an impromptu outing; something just drew us in, but I felt like we were taking refuge in a coastal clam house beloved by the locals. I ordered the bouillabaise – was a tremendous bowl with all manner of seafood in it – in a tomato soup – everything tasted fresh. The rolls arrived at the table warm and fresh baked. If you are inWestport, please give this little place a try. I also had theRhode Islandclam chowder for the first time – a clear brothed version of the New England andManhattan. Tasted like it had Herbes d’Provence in it – very flavorful.

My friends and I had a yummy lunch here recently. They chose oysters for an appetizer and I had fried calamari. They raved about the oysters which were simply perfect in every way – fresh, cold and served attractively. My calamari was very good too. We had salads for our main course topped with large pieces of delicious lobster meat. The desserts were very substantial – my friends had cheese cake and key lime pie. I controlled myself and did not partake. The Mansion Clam House has been inWestportfor a long time and it’s a favorite among local diners. The environment is nautical as it is situated on theSaugatuckRiver. The staff is very friendly and capable and overall we were very happy with the experience and plan to return for another luncheon soon. It gets very busy during the summertime so reservations are a must. -RosaP
