We had lunch here - burgers, fries and everything was good. Food was delivered hot, fries were great. Service excellent. We liked it better than Friday's Crab House which was a LOT more expensive. Casual, friendly.

Lunch was ok, not the best I've had and by far not the worst. After reading other reviews maybe we ordered the wrong things??

This morning I had the special hashbrowns and they were just what the doctor ordered. My browns were home style and Jill was our waitress. If you are waiting for the ferry, it's close by and you can watch the ferry traffic from inside or outside seating. Take your dog and sit outside. You'll love it.

We were looking for a quick bite to eat and a local suggested we go to The Hungry Clam. It was perfect for what we wanted. A picnic table, umbrella, hamburger, fries and a milkshake. It was just what we were looking for. Great view too!

Best halibut burger I have EVER had. Nice thick fillet, cooked to perfection. Fries were great too. I will definitely eat here again!

Someone told us this place was really great for breakfast, so I was excited to go there. The view of the harbor was lovely and the decor was fun, but the food was pretty average.

After receiving horrible service at a restaurant in Friday Harbor, I was very happy to find The Hungry Clam. Service was fast and friendly, even on Memorial Day weekend, and the food was exactly as expected. Will definitely return if in Friday Harbor again.

The island’s answer to a greasy spoon. However, they have great hearty breakfasts, they are always open, the waitstaff is friendly, and their old fashioned milkshakes are hand dipped, served in a parlor glass with extra in the metal mixing tumbler and are to die for!

Fish and chips - especially the cod - was very good. Fries were not crispy and a bit soggy. Reuben sandwich was average. Clam chowder in bread bowl was very good.

We love the breakfast here! The service is good. Dory's is our favorite! It's old school but yummy. Excellent waffles and pancakes. Their specials are a terrific deal.
