After an initial wait to place our order, the rest of the evening was excellent, with very good food and service (and the waitress kindly offered a billing adjustment for the initial delay). Strongly recommend this restaurant. The ocean bake and turtle cheesecake are always excellent!

Clamdiggers has a variety of dishes with fresh ingredients and creative combinations. The menu has something for everyone, with special strength in seafood.
The front-of-house staff are professional, friendly and knowledgeable.
The setting and ambience are worth going for.

All of our guests really enjoyed their meals. When the food was served it was still good and hot.

We were impressed to see that you listed your kitchen staff on the chalk board in the hallway entrance.

In my opinion, Clamdiggers has the tastiest fish and chips on PEI with the lightest batter and the best homemade tartar sauce. The wait staff are lovely and efficient. The views are beautiful and the atmosphere is relaxed and the prices can't be beat. Everyone should try the food at Clamdiggers at least once in their lives and they will be very pleased.

It was evening dining at 8:00. They closed at 9:00. We were seated under an AC unit to which we had to wear our jackets to keep warm. There were plenty of empty seats that could have been provided had they cleared and cleaned them.
The clams were over battered and deep fried. No fresh steam clams on the menu. Surprised since they are called ClamDiggers. Other dishes were overcooked and too much cream and oil.

Also, the beer they served us was warm and we did not drink it.

Will not return.

The night following the ClamDiggers experience, I had fresh steamed claims in Charlottetown.

The experience began with a 15-minute wait at the hostess station (we had reservations), only to be told to seat ourselves outside. We waited another 15 minutes before a waitress came to our table. Apparently, they didn't know we were there. Strangely the customers who came seconds before us (no reservations) were served and given their bill before our order was taken. It was truly brutal. They are lucky there is little competition in the area.
Never again.

Excellent service would be an understatement. Although the food on its own would have made the evening a tremendous success, the friendly staff was directly responsible for making it memorable. Thank you et Merci ;-) Hope to see you again soon.
