We had breakfast there and it was very good. The rest of the menu looked like other meals would be good. There was a good view of the bay. The people were nice.

We went to the Hungry Clam for dinner then back for lunch. Menu is typical diner style food (tasty!) but the decor and friendly staff made this an easy choice for a second visit.

Loved this quaint diner. Excellent menu choices guaranteed to appeal to all. Also try the raspberry lemonade. It's delicious. The clam basket & monte cristo sandwich would definitely be ordered again. Servers are very friendly too.

We ate at the Hungry Clam a couple of times while on the island, the oysters, scallops, cod & milkshakes were good. Our server Michelle was fantastic, friendly and very funny!

The restaurant was very busy but the wait staff was hustling, helping each other and giving great service. The food was delicious and very filling.

Found this diner the first day of our vacation, and went back every morning. Coming from the east coast, they were open super early, 5am. The view is incredible and we absolutely looked forward to going there each morning. Great coffee, eggs, and fresh fruit.

I would recommend calling them and letting them know. They may not be aware. I do know they open very early as the people that are catching the red eye or very early morning ferry would have somewhere to eat. I am not sure... More
