Reviewed April 21, 2013

Food and atmosphere were great. It was a little annoying to see wait staff talking with their friends while customers were waiting for service.

“Waterfront restaurant”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Restaurant has a good menu selection and down home atmosphere. Reasonably priced with good service. Since it was early in the season, we we did not have to wait to be seated. The waitress was very friendly and always appeared when we needed something. We had a good leisure dinner with no pressure to leave before we were ready.

“The good stuff.”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

There are plenty of foodie bistros in this town, but, there is a reason Clawson's has been around so long. Good fresh food and value. Decor is wood and casual. We liked it up in front by the street windows. Got the 1/2 price wings for a starter and they were great. Both our dinners were delish!

“Great service with a large select of food and beer.”
Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

For those that follow my posts you know I love wine with dinner. This place is definately not a wine place but they have a nice selection of beers. The crab dip was probably some of the best I've had in the area. Awesome crab flavor in a great creamy sauce. The wife had the scallops. We are broiled seafood lovers but these were breaded. They were pretty good but a little greasy. I had the champagne mahi mahi. I thought this meal was spot on. The mushrooms really made the flavors come together. Most of the menu was typical bar food. The place feels like lunch would be better than the typical dinner foods I'm use to. I'll be back for lunch to try some of the extensive sandwiches they have.

“Clauson's is a Classic”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

We were with a group but you would never know it by the excellent level of prompt and courteous service we received. We also drove almost a hour, from Swansboro, to get here. We had oysters and scallops, fried. Why would you have them any other way. The portions were generous and they were absolutely delicious. Add to this an atmosphere of historical authenticity that, tin ceilings, natural would appointments, lathe exposed walls and you have the perfect atmosphere for a wonderful dining experience. On top of all this is that you are right on the Beaufort waterfront on a Friday night with wandering minstrels serenading all the passers-bye.
Thank you and we shall return!!!!!!!
