The selection is a couple different soups. The good thing is all of the soups are delicious. The chowder in a bread bowl is very good. The service is very fast .

Country Kettle's New England chowder in a bread bowl is a major star of my family's culinary dreams. We cannot leave the island without at least a quart of this deliciousness to enjoy at home. Consistently good and tasty!

When we are on the island either for vacation or just a day trip (during the off season) My husband must stop and get their chowder. He buys it by the quart and takes it home for when they are closed during the winter.
