an excellent place to dine. Reservations are good as they were busy. There is a pub area as well as dining room and deck. Excellent well water without chlorine. Two large pieces of fish. Large plate of fried clams. Chowder and burgers. Very enjoyable. We are Seniors and we often split a meal. We did share and it worked well.

Clam Diggers now overlooks the Cardigan Harbour so you can have a wonderful view while you enjoy your meal. We are long time customers and were glad to see that, if anything, Clam Diggers has only gotten better.

It was a Tuesday evening before the tourist season and the restaurant was quite busy with local people, always a good sign. We were seated immediately at a window side table. There were lots of servers and service was friendly, polite and efficient. Our food was served quickly and piping hot. I enjoyed the ocean bake--haddock, shrimp and scallops in a cream sauce. Very tasty and the seafood and fish were cooked to perfection. My husband enjoyed the fish tacos and very much liked the sauce. We each had a local beer. The warm bread served before dinner was very good, too. We regretted that we did not have room for dessert.

So happy that Clam Diggers is settled into its new location. Kudos Arlene. We look forward to our next meal at Clam Diggers.

Stopped over after a trip to Georgetown and was not disappointed. Mussel chowder was one of the best on the island and we come often. Food was great, fresh, and outside ambiance was awesome. Nice staff too, big thumbs up!

What an awesome restaurant I found on Trip Advisor. My husband had the seafood platter and he said it is the best he’s ever had. No fillers (fries, potatoes) just all seafood. A huge plate of scallops, shrimp, crab and lobster. Nothing deep fried. I had the scallops and fries which was also delicious and you have to try the chocolate fudge dessert. Heavenly. Very reasonably priced. Pauline was our waitress and she was very friendly and attentive. It is worth the drive from Charlottetown.

Our family have been big fans of "Diggers" over the years in its Georgetown location - taking guests there for lunch & then visiting local shops. It has always had a local following as well as being a destination for tourists - my opinion has always been good, fresh seafood, imaginatively prepared & presented while not being heavily reliant on complex sauces etc - the seafood stands on its own. Was annoyed to hear that the owner was unable to reach an agreement with the Georgetown & Area Development Corp to purchase the property & continue her culinary magic in that location.
Visited the new Cardigan location today & was DELIGHTED to find that the food is still absolutely wonderful, the service up to standard and the pricing very competitive. We sat out on the deck overlooking the Cardigan River in the sun. I ordered my favourite crab cakes, my husband his fav fried clam strips (fresh, not boxed) & our son, roasted corn chowder & a steak sandwich. It was all terrific - kudos to the owner for overcoming all the nonsense that went on in Georgetown - her restaurant is the only reason I went there!
