Delicious hush-puppies

Located inside an inn, but a very quiet place. The hush puppies are great, but the food takes a long time to get to your table. Still a great restaurant.

We arrived about 15 minutes before they closed. We asked if there was time to eat, and the hostess sighed very loudly and looked dramatically at her watch before saying, "Just barely." She took us to an area that seemed to be overflow seating, with the tables incredibly close together. Because of the lack of atmosphere and the hostess's attitude,... More

Food was fine. All seafood is fried. Shrimp was good, flounder okay. Slaw was good. All fresh and as expected. Service was adequate, holiday weekend was busy for a limited staff. We were seated upon arrival. Biggest issue is the facility. It's old, with wooden walls and ceiling. Has an old, dank smell that was hard to accept. Probably would... More

We have a vacation home in Pine Knoll Shores and eat lunch at this nearby restaurant two or three days each month. It has a varied lunch menu with seafood, burgers, sandwiches and more. There is always a lunch special that is usually very good and nice size portions. The waitstaff are friendly and attentive and there is a good... More

The selection, quality, service and oceanview is great. Ask for a table on the ocean side to get the great view.

We ate dinner there, and had enough to take some for lunch the next day. We had wine, beer, and a good seafood dinner of flounder. Prices for the quantity of food were very reasonable,and we sat near the window looking toward the ocean. Nice for dinner, fairly quiet the night we were there, and would return when we're back...

We tried this restaurant based on reviews. We had a party of 9 with 4 kids. The restaurant is located at the bottom of an inn. We had to ring a large bell to get a hostess and then we were seated in a back room that seemed to be for banquets. It was an odd atmosphere and a little... More

My brothers and I went there for dinner and the food was a bit over placed for the quality of food. Plus, a very disruptive customer who must have had one too many interrupted the evening because he did not get his food timely or something. We felt sorry for the waitress and front staff. The waitress was great. The... More

We stay at the Clamdigger Inn when we come to the beach. One of the best parts of our stay is breakfast in the morning. We've never ordered anything and been disappointed. Even when we make special requests they are spot on! Great Job! Wait staff is attentive.
