Don't go for the chowder! ¥

Great grouper sandwich with a generous portion of fish and thick- cut fries. Very tasty. Disappointing cup of lobster chowder which had the consistency of paste, flavorless, with minute pieces of lobster a nd worst of all served lukewarm. Pass on this house specialty.

We walked right past this place at first. It is sort of hidden away beside a better known establishment. I'm glad we came here! Fantastic oysters at great prices. The clam chowder is thick, as it should be. The grouper pot pie is huge and some of the best food I've had in the cape. Great food and very reasonable... More

We normally frequent another restaurant close by and happened to give this place a try. Hadn't really noticed it before. I am glad we did. They had an oyster special when we were there and they were delicious. Great view of the water. We could not have asked for better service. Will definitely be back.

We took some visitors from out of state to Chowders recently and they experienced first hand the great food, port-side views and friendly service we had raved about! We love this place for all of the above as well as the relaxing, laid back atmosphere we always get when we eat here. All the chowders are great and we recommend... More

We all LOVE seafood and decided to try Baja Chowder and Seafood after following them on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram). The photos of the food are always delightful and we were excited to discover that the food is just as delectable in person!

Great place! We visit here every time we're in town! Don't miss the Grouper Pot Pie! Chowder base with Grouper and vegetables. Yummy crab cake crust on top! It's awesome!
