The venue is nice enough and the staff was pleasant and attentive. That's the best I can say. First, we ordered the "wold's best chowder". Obviously the person(s) who said that never had real clam Chowder in New England. No flavor other than salt. Half...More

This was our favorite place that we ate on our trip. Service was great. Food was even better. Fun atmosphere. Chowder was excellent. The "chips" were the best (sliced fried potatoes). Close to the beach and fun shops.

This gem is in the Nye Beach area and was the perfect stop for lunch. The chowder is their specialty and it was superb. The bay shrimp cocktail and salads were very good as well.

We had a late lunch here and enjoyed our food. However, the clam chowder (which they are famous for) contained numerous bits of sand and/or other crunchy stuff. The taste was good but not the best by far. The place is VERY popular and was...More

After yelp and trip advising clam chowder along the Oregon coast, we decided upon this place and so glad that we did! There were so many homemade clam chowder options, small, large, breadbowl, fries, etc. Got the original clam chowder in a sourdough breadbowl for...More
