“Food fit for a drunk”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

I love clams, have eaten and cooked most every kind there is, but I have never had any so terrible as the ones I had here. One would think that a place that calls itself a "Clam Factory" would know how to cook clams, but the Ipswich clams I had here were badly cleaned, cut, and cooked. Such a disappointment. My friend, who felt sorry for me, offered me a piece of her fried haddock. The batter was like corny dog crust, except with no flavor and dripping in grease. She said that she had to take the fish out of her other pieces and just eat that, smothered in tartar sauce.
I don't know if the cook was having a bad day, of if the other people writing great reviews here had imbibed a lot before they tried the food! The waitress was very nice, though, and removed my order from the check.

“Smoked Chicken - Coming back to this honkey tonk”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Came in after flying into TPA on a Tuesday night for a quick takeout order. There was an awesome blues band playing. All the food every one was eating looked great. Staff here is downhome friendly and you can smoke inside. Raw bar looked fantastic, we had large, cold peel and eat shrimp which was very good. They cook up smoked chicken, delicious so are the fish tacos. The only problem I had with this place was that I never got to go back :(. CCF is my new favorite place down here.
