Lovely spot

I really barely explored the menu, but the restaurant was very crowded and people were all very happy. They have oyster on the half shell specials, and they were delicious. Not an abundance of local cusine, i do recommend trying this one. Very pretty setting.

Great beer selection but that's it. It's very loud. So many other better places to eat in the area. The food is below average and drowned in salt. We will not return.

A favorite place when we come home to visit, The Chimes offers great outdoor seating with boardwalks down to the Bogue Falaya Creek. We met a young family there who kayak'd there for lunch! Great seafood and Cajun/creole options, appetizers, sandwiches, and full meals. Sweet potatoes two ways! Excellent selection of local craft brews and others more widely known. Service... More

I think most of the food is average but overpriced with the exception of the blackened chicken pasta alfredo and the spinach and artichoke dip. I get both of those dishes each time I visit. They have a large outdoor seating area that has a long walkway over the water (I've never walked down there but I've heard there are... More

Some family members and I dined there recently and had a nice experience. Other members of my party tried some craft beers while my son and I took down some soft drinks. My son loves their sauteed crab claws, which, as fairly typical, they were out of. That is an item that should be taken off the regular menu and... More

Chimes is always consistent. Decided to go there for a birthday celebration - Mine because of the grandkids. Their menu is great and the food is always good. Large serving means we always bring some dishes home to enjoy the next day. Great atmosphere with the outside walk on the deck thru the trees above the river. Very nice and... More
