Clip Raster based on polygon shape

I'm having issues cleanly clipping a raster based on a polygon shape. When I perform a clip using the Clip tool (Data Management Tools/Raster/Raster Processing/Clip) based on the output extent of a shapefile, the resulting raster is extremely rough around the edges, causing the image to look pixelated. In a perfect world, the raster would snap to the extent of the polygon, making for smooth/clean edges... This has to be possible -- what am I missing here?
