Tasty lobster Newberg and generous portions of prime rib compelled us to have dinner the Clambake twice while on vacation on Deer Isle. Many beer choices on tap including local brews. All nicely chilled. In September only open a few days of the week -...More

The road sign "LOUSY FOOD AND WARM BEER" is a little off-putting. However, upon reflection, one has to have a lot of confidence in one's product to advertise it thus. At any rate, The Clamdigger proved to be a very satisfying dining experience - nothing...More

Good place for a lobster dinner or any of the Maine coast type of seafood. Mostly fried but some can be broiled. I had broiled scallops and they were very good. They also serve very generous portions of roast beef. Drinks wine and beer available

The atmosphere is low average. The food is okay. The community of a small island makes for a friendly environment.
