   Remember the good old days when Steve’s Clam Bar was a summer destination on the Elmwood Strip? The seasonal seafood stand is now open for lunch & dinner at Cecelia’s Ristorante & Martini Bar


If you’re in the market for raw oysters, clams casino, lobster dainties, steamed crab legs, crawfish, prawns, or just about any other tasty crustacean, Steve’s Clam Bar probably has it. The casual seafood stand is situated on Cecelia’s patio and serves the same menu fare from the Italian ristorante’s kitchen (which also happens to have one of the best Martini lists in town).

Steve’s has a rotating selection of raw oysters that are geographically priced and served by the dozen or half dozen. Specialties include Oysters Rockefeller, Seafood Ceviche, King & Dungeness Crab Claws, Cajun Crab & Shrimp Casino, and Lobster Casino.

Whether you’re in the mood for champagne & oysters or steamed clams & beer, Steve’s Clam Bar/Cecelia’s patio is the place to be (and be seen) this summer.

    This is exciting! I remember going to Steve’s Clam Bar with my dad. I was a vegetarian at the time, but it was fun to sit on the street and enjoy the sunshine.

    Living in Vegas, i have experienced the finest of seafood restaurants! But nothing compares to Steve’s! He has the freshest clams,oysters etc.! So if your visiting Buffalo and living in Vegas, don’t forget to stop at Steve’s clam bar before you hop on that plane!! It will definitely be an experience to remember!

    Last summer my cousin Al and childhood friend Mike took me out to Steve’s for clams. I died and went to heaven as my taste buds experienced the clams casino. What the hell have I been missing out on all these years!!!!!! We took our kids and my Mom to Steve’s last week for my Birthday. Steve- You are a riot! Thank you so much for creating these clams.
