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).

  • Buffett's Berkshire takes $4.48 billion stake in Phillips 66
    The 57.98 million-share, or roughly 10.8 percent, stake was revealed in a Friday night filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Phillips 66 shares closed Friday at $77.23. Berkshire once held a large stake in the Houston-based company, but shed nearly two-thirds of it in February 2014 when it swapped $1.35 billion of shares for a chemicals business that it folded into its Lubrizol unit.
  • Fed's Fischer sees inflation rebound, allowing gradual rate hikes
    U.S. inflation will likely rebound as pressure from the dollar fades, allowing the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates gradually, Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said on Saturday in a speech careful not to overreact to a possible Chinese slowdown. The influential U.S. central banker was circumspect whether he would prefer to raise rates from near zero at a much-anticipated policy meeting on Sept. 16-17. The cautious confidence from Fischer, as well as from Bank of England Governor Mark Carney who spoke at a conference alongside him, suggests at least two major central banks are poised to look beyond a week of financial-market turmoil brought on by fears that China's economy is faltering.
  • Focus turns to U.S. data as China slowdown looms
    After a dizzying two weeks that saw a rapid plunge and rebound in equity prices, investors are looking forward to a week of economic data that may provide clarity on the likelihood of a near-term U.S. interest rate hike and help tamp down the market's recent wild swings. The economic figures will culminate in Friday?s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy. Car sales, construction spending, the Federal Reserve's "beige book" and jobs growth may show the economy is strong enough to withstand the first rate hike in nearly a decade from the Federal Reserve, despite worries about a hard landing for China?s economy.
