THE BEARDED CLAM, established in 1978 by the Strawleys, is located at 15 Wicomico St. in downtown Ocean City, Maryland.

THE CLAM, as the customer refer to us, is a Bar & Liquor Store. We have pool tables, video games and a dart board.

The entertainment is mostly provided by the customers (ha-ha), but we also have 7 televisions and a great juke box.

A feature at THE CLAM are fresh squeezed fruit drinks and some of the coldest draft and bottle beer in town.

THE CLAM is sports-oriented and motorcycle rider friendly. Our hours are 11am until 2am, seven days a week, in season.

In the off season, our hours are cut back some so the help can take a breather.

Nice location . Pretty close to boardwalk .. very good interiors and an old style bar. They had few beers on tap . Tried land shark and it was good . There were few other drafts , and not many IPA options (atleast on tap) .. they probably had ipas on bottles . Service was a bit slow . Billing was slow too. I liked the atmosphere though. They had pool table etc . Nice place for a quick drink. 4/5

This place is pretty awesome. Just off the south end of the boardwalk and definitely a solid dive bar. Every time I'm in OC, it's a must stop location. No food and a decent draft beer selection, but seems they have gone cash only during busy times - not my favorite but works. Definitely worth a stop if you're around!

The server did not know how to make a long Island iced tea. And there was a sign that read "sexual harassment in this area will not be reported, however it will be graded". I found that very disturbing. There was a machine game that takes your money, but doesn't work. This is 100 percent a dive bar. If you want a nice cocktail, don't go here.
