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.

My family and I have dined at this restaurant for 16 years, but only for breakfast. We have a nearby condo and walk to the restaurant. I cannot comment on their lunch or dinner meals. We'd rather drive to Morehead City or Beaufort for lunch or dinner where there are some really good restaurants by any standard. The breakfast fare... More

My wife and I wanted a full dinner for our last night at the Beach. We decided to try Clamdiggers, because of the favorable write-ups on Tripadvisor---and we're glad we did. Lisa was our waitress, and she was both pleasant and attentive. Ask for her if you visit--it will make your meal that much better. I had a bowl of... More

This restaurant is located will be in the clamdigger inn, a moderately priced hotel in Pine Knoll Shores. Every room has a balcony onto the ocean, but the restaurant does not take advantage of this location. It is an older building and the restaurant shows it. There are some reasonable entrées and some locals see the bar as a gathering... More
