Small, clean, friendly staff. Good food. A little pricey. Excellent desserts, especially custard pie! Chowder has 2 choices sometimes--thin or thick.

Went to The Chowder House again and service was pretty good as always. Waited as usual, no worries. Decided to get an appetizer and split a meal. Asked if the King Crab leg special was enough to share. Not expecting too much. Was told yes, it was filling but didn't know actual weight. Received 1 split King Crab leg for... More

Went there w/ a group of 20 and still received great service. Every one of us who ordered the "Chowdah" said it was the best we've ever had. Truly special. I was lucky enough to order a lobster roll. Yes, it was expensive, $18.99, but wow! The amount of lobster chunks made me smile for days afterword. Amazing...the biggest and... More

My wife and her friend are both 60 and hadn't seen each other for 30 years. We picked this place because is was central for both couples to drive. They were friends from first grade on and have corresponded through the years. To have a Chance to visit though was a special time. We had a great lunch. The shrimp... More

Went here because of the good reviews and was very disappointed. First off the Lobster Bisque had good flavor but NO bits of lobster or anything. The clam chowder was mostly potatoes. We got the grilled shrimp and it was good but it is small shrimp and over priced. Don't buy into the good reviews as it is not that... More

During snowbird season this restaurant is very busy. Good service, good food, and reasonable prices. Generous amount of food. We had enough to take home for another meal.

Great seafood. Great Service, Chowder was creamy and delicious. If there is a line it is worth the wait. Thanks to Sarah Jo for being most excellent waitress. And make sure to save room for desert.
