I never come to LBI without getting at least a quart of their New England chowda! Absolutely the best on the island, and always fresh. Don't miss it!

Went there based on the excellent reviews. A small place with some seats outside and pricey for a small bowl of soup.

We go back year after year. We love the half red, half white. Just the right spice, not overly creamy, plenty of vegetables and most important clams!

Stopped in to pick up a container of New England Clam Chowder - best soup ever. Took a quart back to the rental house and everyone raved over it. Wish I had got a second to freeze and bring home!

While there are many spots to get great chowder on LBI, this is one of the best. Always has a selection of soups to pick from, and provides a bread bowl option.
