    The Happy Clam Seafood Restaurant, has been family owned and operated locally, by the Moncure family since 1979. There was a brief interruption, courtesy of Hurricane Isabel, between 2003 and 2007. The Happy Clam is at Bayside Marina, and is associated with The Seafood Market at The Happy Clam. They have photos on the walls of old time Colonial Beach.

    Favorite Dish: Normally I would have one of the specials, but I had seafood gumbo the day before, and I'm not a fan of okra unless it is in some kind of soup or stew. So I had hot tea and shrimp salad with hush puppies. Bob had soup and tuna salad and cole slaw. Then we both wanted coconut cake, but it apparently hadn't 'set up' yet, so Bob had double chocolate cake and I had chocolate pie. Each dessert was $4.95. The bill before tip was $35.92

    We sat by the window, and I watched a little boy playing on the sand. He was chasing some female mallard ducks. While we were eating, we saw a lady come ashore in a kayak - she was a bit wet.

    Favorite Dish: We both had virgin pina colas.

    I had a cup of the soup of the day which was seafood gumbo to start - it was VERY spicy. Bob also had a cup of soup. Bob had a Fish and Chips Basket (appetizer) $8.99, and I had the coconut shrimp appetizer $9.99.
