At Clawson's we specialize in real, home cooked food made by real people — many who have been with us for years.
When you come in for our lump crab cake, know that we spent hours perfecting the recipe. When you dig into a giant piece of Death by Chocolate Cake, you can be certain our baker, Debbie, made it with care. Even our ridiculously tasty ranch dressing is mixed up right here. In addition to our daily menu, we offer fresh, local seafood, produce and more as Featured Menu Items — you'll find these items at the top of our online menu. We update them throughout the week!
Have a party, meeting or other event coming up? Book one of our private and semi-private dining spaces.
We have plenty of spots in our historic building for your private event. Our Waterfront Banquet Room is perfect for rehearsal dinners, baby showers, board meetings and intimate weddings. Our back room is ideal for stand-up events, "town-hall" style meetings and big family dinners. Private Event Manager Danny Stellmach can help you choose a location and menu perfect for your needs.

Clawson's 1905 Restaurant & Pub gets its name from Clawson's Grocery and Bakery, which opened in 1905. Today, the restaurant has grown beyond the original grocery store space and into the building next door, fondly remembered as Roses Department Store in the midcentury.
Clawson's pays homage to 108 years on Beaufort Waterfront with walls bursting with antiques, photos and old local newspapers. The antiques and memorabilia on our walls run the gamut from never-opened cans of mid-century Schlitz to antique grocer's scales to an old wooden phone booth.
Remembering and preserving the history of downtown Beaufort is as priority for Clawson's. We hope you enjoy our collection as much as we do.
