Pier 33 Seafood & Bar to Open in Downtown Clayton Friday

Downtown Clayton is ready to have restaurant number seven open this week . Pier 33 Seafood & Bar will open Friday at 312 E Main Street offering Calabash-style seafood. The new restaurant will be open for dinner from 4:30 pm to 9:00 pm Tuesday – Saturday. Pier 33 is opening in the location formerly occupied by Main Steak Restaurant.

Calabash-style seafood is freshly-breaded with different seasonings and fried, but a broiled menu will also be offered. Owner and chef, Vickie Davis, is not a newcomer to the business, she owned and operated the popular Vicky’s Calabash Pier at Southhills in Cary from 1987 to 2002.

“We are excited the Davises chose to open their restaurant in downtown Clayton,” said Ed Knight, President of the Clayton Downtown Development Association. “There are now 7 locally-owned, independent restaurants in downtown and each has a different cuisine.” He added, “it’s another example that good things are happening in Clayton.”

Pier 33 Seafood & Bar will offer beer and wine and eventually a full bar, but it will provide a family-oriented environment since her son, Billy Davis, is the manager and other family members will be working there, too. The new restaurant will have a casual atmosphere, according to Mrs. Davis, because, “We’re hometown people, just come as you are!”

The restaurant phone number is (919) 550-0093.
