Seafood, quick and easy

Located in a small local strip mall, this is a convenient place for lunch or dinner anytime. This is fast food, but done very well and of the best quality and with fair prices.

Was looking for quick seafood in area and saw good reviews for Chowderheads on trip advisor. My 14-year-old daughter didn't think the food would be good because of the outside appearance. I told her it looks can be deceiving. We ordered fish and chips tiger shrimp and seafood chowder. The food was not only fantastic but reasonably priced. Don't let... More

I've had their seafood chowder and their fish & chips; both were excellent to outstanding. I have returned several times with friends and family. Little to no atmosphere, but great seafood at a very reasonable price.

Definitely casual and not fancy (just fine by us). The service was friendly and the food very good. Worth stopping in.

This is a great little find we accidentally discovered while driving around. We were very pleased with the freshness of the seafood. The clam chowder was delicious and I thought the best until I ate at the Good Table later in the week. Still, it was delicious. There is nothing fancy about this place but they kept it clean and...

We were looking for clam chowder. We looked up this restaurant, and read reviews about the tasty seafood chowder that had shrimp, haddock, and scallops in it. And a good review on their onion rings. So, that is what we ordered, and it was very delicious. Some of the best chowder we have had. And, the onion rings were fresh... More

Every time we visit the Portland Maine area we have to stop at Chowderhead's to buy a quart of their awesome fried oysters to treat the family to! There's a small comfortable open seating area but we always order our food to take out. If you've never tried fried oysters do your self a favor and get some here at... More

I didn't expect my fried fish sandwich and onions to be healthy but I did expect them to be a delicious treat. My sandwich had a disgusting piece of completely brown lettuce on it. It would have been better if they had just left it off. I have know idea why anyone would put something so disgusting on the sandwich.... More

Nice little place to grab a bite of seafood. Nothing fancy but it looked like a great seafood menu with lots of choices. Disappointed they only had one kind of chowder and it was way over priced. Took some home and the container was tiny!
