I don't like clam chowder that you need to eat with a knife & fork. Way too much bacon. Not really soup, more like really creamy mashed potatoes with bacon. Partner had seafood basket & could not finish any of the items. Calamari was chewy, oysters uncooked, scallops micro small. Will not ever try it again! Over priced, poor food... More

Great burgers, but ask for yours well-done if you don't want pink inside. We also ordered the clam chowder this time, and thought it was good but not great. It smelled fishy and was super thick. One thing to watch out for is the plastic soup spoons they provide--they are too deep for your mouth and will cut the edges... More

We had fish and chips and they were very good! I didn't realize until after we got our food that we could have tater tots or hush puppies instead of fries. Next time will try the hush puppies!

My husband and I ate dinner at The Hungry Clam and while the service was good and the food acceptable, it's a typical beachfront diner serving mainly fried seafood dishes with fries and slaw. Not recommended if you're looking for a good, relaxing evening meal.

I'm afraid our take on this restaurant isn't nearly as good as most of the reviews I see posted here. There is much, much better clam chowder out there. Perhaps people who don't live on the West Coast don't have a lot to compare it to...but I would never order it again. And my partner ordered scallops--poor guy, he sure... More

Had the fish and chips. They were moist and tasty!! Fried perfectly. Hush puppies were good also. We have been coming here for years and always great fish and chips. Chowder is good too.

We had dinner here on a Sunday night, sat outside at one of the picnic tables. I had halibut and chips, my husband had a big combo basket. All good, not great. We also split a cup of clam chowder that was very good. Be aware there's no beer or wine.

We had been walking on the beach and thru town all day. This Clam Chowder bread bowl sitting on a wharf restaurant was perfect for our day. Soup was not filled with potatoes and just a few bits of clams. This Clam Chowder was made with love and clams

We were looking for chowder on our trip up the coast. We found the Hungry Clam at the harbor and stopped for lunch. Nothing fancy, but very busy with one girl doing a awesome job of taking orders and serving. The chowder was ecxcellent with sweet, fresh clams. We also shared fish and chips and the fish was excellent. It... More
