The Hungry Clam restaurant has made hungry people happier.

With new owners, the eatery in the Port of Brookings Harbor now is open daily for lunch and dinner.

Former Redding residents Kristi and Roy Daniels bought the place because they liked the food; the Hungry Clam was always on the to-do list when the couple vacationed in the area three times a year.

Added to the otherwise unchanged menu are scallops "to die for," the new owners said; crab melt sandwiches and shrimp and crab melt sandwiches, fruit cups, and hushpuppies.

The three children of the former owner, Joan Konzak, are still on staff to continue the tradition of "having the best seafood in town," Kristi Daniels said.

The line of waiting diners stretching outside the door will be moving faster because of added staff and new equipment in the kitchen, she explained. Take-outs are welcome too.

The seafood restaurant now allows customers to pay with VISA, Master Card or checks from anywhere.

To keep the restaurant a family place, alcoholic beverages will not be served. But "Fred" the sea gull will still make appearances.

Kristi and Roy Daniels (he is a self-employed trucker) say they have never met nicer people than in Brooking and wonder "Did every single nice person move here?"

The Hungry Clam is open seven days a week until 7 p.m. It opens at 11 a.m. Mondays through Thursdays and opens at 10 a.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The phone number is (541) 469-CLAM (2526).

  • As G20 chases growth goal, members differ on how to get there
    Financial leaders of the Group of 20 top economies remain committed to chasing higher global growth, but were divided on how to achieve it as Germany pushed back at calls from the United States and others for more immediate stimulus. Opening a meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bankers, Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey outlined on Saturday an ambitious agenda of boosting world growth, fireproofing the global banking system and closing tax loopholes for giant multinationals. "We have the opportunity to change the destiny of the global economy," said Hockey, who back in February launched a campaign to add 2 percentage points to world growth by 2018 as part of Australia's presidency of the G20. Just this week, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) slashed its growth forecasts for most major economies.
  • Dollar's rally bad news for oil, multinationals
    We are now seeing a new uptrend develop,” said Adam Sarhan, founder and CEO of Sarhan Capital in New York. If you’re a large tech company and you do a lot of business overseas, that’s not going to help you,” said Larry Glazer, managing partner at Mayflower Advisors in Boston. Lower oil prices favor the consumer, who can pocket the savings or spend the cash in stores.
  • Alibaba surges 38 percent on massive demand in market debut
    Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's (BABA.N) shares soared 38 percent in their first day of trading on Friday as investors jumped at the chance for a piece of what is likely to rank as the largest IPO in history, in a massive bet on China's burgeoning middle class. It was an auspicious debut for the Chinese e-commerce company, which was founded by Jack Ma in his apartment in 1999 and now accounts for 80 percent of online sales in China. About 100 people gathered outside the New York Stock Exchange at Wall and Broad Streets, many of them Chinese tourists with cameras, and they cheered and snapped photos when Ma exited the building with the kung fu star Jet Li. Some 271 million shares changed hands, more than double the turnover on Twitter Inc's (TWTR.N) first day last year, although still short of volume for the General Motors Co (GM.N) and Facebook Inc (FB.O) IPOs.
