Clawson's 1905 Restaurant Beaufort Reviews
Clawson's 1905 Restaurant Jun 28, 2008
Beaufort is a charming village along North Carolina’s coast, and Clawson’s is a fabulous eatery there. My wife wanted to bring us here to sample their renowned seafood bisque, and I’m here to tell you that it is sumptuous!
The restaurant began as a grocery store started by a husband and wife who emigrated from Sweden (Charles) and Ireland (Mary). An old time atmosphere is preserved by the setting and decorations, including the creaky wood plank floor. They feature a splendid menu and the Seafood Bisque truly is fantastic – the seafood is dominated by shrimp and scallops, the broth is excellent, but not so rich that you can only handle a few spoonfuls. To truly enjoy the local experience, I opted for a “dirigible” as my main course (basically a stuffed potato), and did not disappoint.
Since tomorrow was a work day and we still had to drive several hours, we didn’t sample their extensive beer selection, but this is another facet you can enjoy should you spend some time here. Another place to return as I suspect Clawson’s is but one of many gems in Beaufort!
