    We had one of the best meals in a very long time at Clamdiggers. We highly recommend a trip ASAP since they are closing very soon. Sorry we won’t be able to enjoy another wonderful meal until spring 2024

    Absolutely the best! The service was outstanding, very friendly servers, prompt service, and a very short wait for orders. The food was also outstanding, good menu offerings, well-prepared, and ample proportions. This is a must-go for our visits to the Island!

    Best place in PEI for whole fried clams. Had them with potato salad which delicious. We shared their homemade carrot cake which was another home run dish! Service was spot on. View spectacular (until darkness set in).

    I do really like this restaurant. But I found the baked haddock dinner just so so. The fish and seasonal vegetables were rather bland -not really flavourful. Seasoning or a sauce of some sort on the fish would be helpful. Even butter on the veggies would be nice. The curried citrus rice was very good. My husband had the fish platter which he really enjoyed. He had potato salad which was excellent. We will go back again.

    Sat out on the patio, was a nice evening to take in the fresh air. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was AMAZING!!!! The fresh in season vegetables were cooked just right and the fish was done to perfection. The chowder had real clams in shell adding to the appeal and taste. Prices were very reasonable. Would recommend Clam Diggers Restaurant to anyone who likes fresh seafood at a reasonable price.

    I didn't really find much flavour in the Shanty Bake, another guest said the fried clams were alright as well as the spaghetti dish with seafood and the steak was delicious. Appetizers came on time but there was a fair bit of time waiting for the main course. A few flies but the atmosphere and view were very good. Waitress was very polite and professional.
