Breakfast rocks!

Wasn't super busy and kind of away from the crowd. They have a huge breakfast menu and it was super good! They also have a lovely view.

The fish and chips were great. I can eat a lot but these 2 pieces of fish were gigantic. It's a great location and the price was right. They have other things on the menu but man my mouth is watering thinking out the F&C. Excellent place!

We showed up for lunch - place not terribly busy. A couple of empty tables inside and a bench outside. We seated ourselves outside and waited patiently for a server. It took about five minutes. Ordered fish & chips which they said they were famous for. 45 minutes latter we were served a greasy mess. We've spent the summer traveling... More

we tried eating elsewhere and were turned away because it was a tavern and people under 21 are not allowed--even at 7:30 in the morning for breakfast!! We were glad the recommended Hungry Clam. Food was great, portions more than generous and prices were very reasonable. We liked it so much at breakfast that we tried eating there that evening,... More

Wonderful service. Great ferry views. '50s style dining with outdoor seating available. American style food.

The fish tasted like it had been soaked in old oil! The fries were overcooked and only a few were actually tasty! Our waitress was too busy chatting in the kitchen to be of much use! I would not recommend this place

Adjacent to the Friday Harbour Ferry is this little place up a white staircase that serves a great breakfast meals. We has pancakes and eggs and enjoyed every bite. Staff is very friendly. Note: Not a lot of tables but we were able to get a seat with no problem.

The portions are generous, prices quite reasonable, and the location near the ferry dock make the Hungry Clam well worth the visit. Our group had a patty melt, clam strips, and scallops; and everyone was pleased. The French Fries were very good too. We came back later for a snack and really enjoyed milkshakes made with fresh red raspberries and... More

Best chocolate malts EVER. I'm sure I've said that before though. I love their clams, their "real" french fries and this trip I tried their fish and chips and it was delicious. This is not a place to go if you are watching your weight. If you can eat a salad while someone at your table has fried clams and... More

We enjoyed our quick visit to the Hungry Clam. The grilled fish taco was as big as my head, and the staffer was accommodating and fun. Note that we were never without a tasty Pike beer. We sat outside as the weather permitted which seemed to be a good thing as the interior had a 50's diner thing going on... More
