The meal was delicious as usual. We were less than impressed with our location. I made the reservation on May 30 for June 20 so I expected seating in the main dining room rather than in the overflow room. Paper serviettes do not compare with linen napkins. The service was great and it was very quiet. If I had walked in off the street without a reservation I would have been satisfied with our table but under the circumstances I was very disappointed.

Next time I will ask for my fries to be cooked more crispy . They seem to like to just cook them enough...but by the time they get to the table, they are soft, tasty but soft. Everything else was amazing!!!

Dinner at Clamdiggers is always an occasion. The atmosphere cozy, it is easy carry on conversations across the table. The service is excellent, the staff are friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful, as usual. It was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. We will definitely be back for another meal.

Loved the seafood chowder.(A little pricey) I got the Meat and Badaydas meal and it was perfectly cooked. I was very impressed. We didn’t see our server very much but she was busy. I love this place and can’t wait to go back in the summer when the weather improves. Thanks for a great meal.

The only thing wrong was the next table that had 3 screaming kids most of the time. Would have perferred to be in the main dining room. Everything else was wonderful though. Lovely waitress as well.
