The line to order was very long but worth the 45 minutes wait we had in the warm weather. As the rotating guests depart, you should be able to find a seat to enjoy your chowder. We tried the New England clam chowder and smoked...More

Some of the chowders have bacon and some have a pork sausage. They also have chowders with none of the above, ask your server which ones are without pork and they'll direct you to one that fits your preference. Enjoy!
