I'm always looking for places off the beaten path. Stopped here on a rainy, Monday. We sat at the bar and enjoyed spicy wings and chips and salsa with our Clamdigger and margaritas. Although the wings could have been a bit spicier, they were still very tasty. Service was excellent! Atmosphere was fun! Can't wait to return when the weather... More

The worst possible experience. We arrived by boat in the evening of September 23. We sat at a table outside that had a swastika carved into the table that had been painted over so it was obvious there was no effort to remove it prior to painting. When asked how large the large pizza is, the server responded "I don't... More

Awsome pizza. Relax by the river while listening to music sitting at deck seating or on a sand beach.

Their famous clamdigger drink wasn't for me but I saw many drinking it. We had a huge party that invaded this place w/o a reservation and we got good service. That poor waitress was busy as heck but she definitely got a good tip from all of us :) We had several foods served to us: mashed potato pizza (good... More

I was in town for a group event and someone from the area recommended Clamdigger. I was confused when the menu wasn't seafood but they did have a clam pizza. We loved the seating on the deck overlooking the river. I had the Philly calzone dippers - yum! Friends had pizzas, subs and salads and everyone raved at how good... More

The park ranger at Sterling State Park, where we are camping, told us we should try this place (I had asked him about a bar with good food.) We biked up into town yesterday and saw Clam Diggers on the river and stopped back by at lunch time. So glad we did! And it was so good we are going... More

Not a big "bar" fan, but the pizza is worth getting to eat on the deck overlooking the river, or to take out. I think they may have the best crust because usually we get a little bit of the crusty blackened good stuff on the bottom.

My wife saw this place from the road and thought it would be nice to have dinner there because it has outside dining on the River Raison. To our dismay, October is not the season for outside dining so we ate inside in the bar. The table was small and the chairs uncomfortable. The waitress seemed inconvenienced by our arrival.... More
