Best Clam Chowder of the West Coast! The price is Ok, but its the tastier Clam Chowder I`ve ever ate, better than the ones of San Francisco!

If you want to go there for lunch then I suggest go a bit early because at lunch time there are lines up everywhere. Moreover, make sure you look where the end of the line up is because some places they leave the space for people to walk through and it does look like a short line up but when... More

My husband is a native New Yorker living in land locked Colorado and is always in search of Manhattan clam chowder. We visited for lunch and it was good. Not East coast good, but very good. Expect to wait in a long line but all in all, worth the stop

We went twice and saw the queue at the Pike Place Market! Sheesh. Saw that they have another branch at Pacific Place and went there after 8. Perfect. No queues. New England chowder was great and full of clams. The lobster chowder was very good too. The hype is real - lol!

Usually if we see a line by a restaurant, we get in it. That tends to be a good sign. That was definitely true of this chowder place. We couldn't decide on just one kind, so we got a sample. Yum!

We got the sample tray with the New England style clam chowder, the market style chowder, the lime and coconut chowder, and seafood bisque. They were all amazing but the seafood bisque was our favorite. Great for those cold weather days.

The map was not so clear as to where to find this place and when we did find what we thought was the restaurant we were disappointed as thought it was closed. Anyway found out it was not the little hole in the wall place inside- that was a kitchen of theirs- it is actually in the outside alley- can... More

This is definitely the Best place to for clam chowder. There's two locations, near the Pike's Place is a long wait so tried the one in the mall just across the Westlake Station.

Ran in here after searching the waterfront for something open in the dead of winter. Would've loved to have sat outside but it was much too cold...... And the inside ambience is almost non existence. However, the food is amazing, and what I loved - is the restaurant staff has a heart. We were the only diners in as they... More
