The food was delicious. I had a lobster roll. Excellent and my hubby had seafood chowder and fish and chips and a Caesar to drink. His Caesar came with celery that we returned twice. Not cut and cleaned up properly. Waitress understood. His chowder was delish but short on potatoes (really they are cheap on pei) and he said his fish and chips were delish but fish pieces were small. Unfortunately we eat at Richards Seafood in Covehead and their food is excellent and huge portions so it's very hard to beat their fish and chips. I found the lobster roll at Clam Diggers as good as the one at Richards and told the waitress so. clam Diggers charge more but then they are a dine in restaurant. I would recommend Clam Diggers! And we will be back.

We visited off-season...so reservations weren’t necessary. My husband and i split 3 items - the coconut curry mussels (so very good), the breaded clams and the sweet potato fries. Everything was very good.
The views are nice and a great atmosphere. Service was excellent.
Would definitely visit again.

My dining partner and I were not pleased with our meal taken at Clam Diggers on August 31. It was lukewarm and pre made. Not acceptable.

Ordered scallop dinner. Potato salad was cubed and hard...tasteless. Coleslaw was not fresh. Scallops were fine. Decaf coffee was old. Turtle cheesecake was excellent. Cesaer drink was good

I had the Halibut. It was excellent. Unfortunately the serving size was very small. Service was great. Very friendly server. Air conditioning was broken on a hot day but that’s an aberration.

Would give 4.5 or better but I left hungry, therefore poor value for me

A favourite of ours, we always enjoy our experience at Clam Diggers. The menu appeals to both seafood lovers and non-seafood lovers as well. Our server was super friendly and accommodating and the meal was fabulous as always. This was our third visit this ear and we will return very soon.

Hostess was rude and wouldn’t give us a better table even though they were empty. Server was excellent. Dinner was very good. Desert was written up as chocolate fudge cake and was certainly nothing like a chocolate fudge cake. My wife liked it o didn’t coffee was very good. Selections of Scotches very weak.

The table and service was excellent. The food tasty and we were certainly not rushed. The portions for what we ordered were small. Grilled fish was thin and small with a tiny portion of rice and very few vegetables. Steak meal about the same. I noticed others order clams and chips and their plates were overflowing so I guess it depends on what meal you choose. We had lots of room for dessert which was excellent!

A lovely location and good service. The food was okay but not as fresh and tasty as it sounded. The mussels were chewy and not as tasty as we remembered PEI blue mussels to be. A disappointment after having waited 17 years to come back to the island and try fresh mussels again.

The only teal problem was the pace of service but I believe they were short-staffed and it was very busy.

Disappointed. First time at this restaurant. I heard good things about this restaurant so booked it for my husband’s birthday. My meal was good but more than half the people in our party of eight were disappointed. None of the meals were above average. Would not eat here again.

I have been to Clam Diggers Beach House and Restaurant twice so far since opening. I absolutely adore this place. The atmosphere is great. Food was delicious. It has been a long time since I had a pasta dish that remained hot and not too dry. The service was outstanding and wait time was phenomenal even though it was Mother's Day. I love the spacious seating. So nice not to rub elbows with other people which makes the dining experience even better. I have nothing but good to say about this restaurant.

We went out for a quite supper. Dining area had a good few customers but it was quite and relaxing. Staff was very friendly and was able to make good suggestions on menu items. Food was tasty and hot. It was busy so didn't mind the wait bc it had a nice atmosphere to the dining area. Will by all means return to try something different and will recommend to others. Can't wait to try the crab cakes have had heard great comments on them. Nice to know your going to be opened year round. Keep up the good work.
