The description of the plates on the menu looked amazing but the food was disappointing. The lobster dish was a bit dry and not generous, and overall the food didn't have a lot of taste.

Went to the chowder house expecting a good cape cod type meal after visiting once last year. This dinner blew me away. I ordered the vegetarian dinner special of red and yellow beet and chevre cheese ravioli in basil cream sauce. It was "to die for". If I could have licked the plate clean without being noticed I would have!... More

Nice place for lunch or dinner , open year round. Casual, friendly, the food is consistent & quite good. Nice variety of specials. Prices are very reasonable especially off season.

To my family this is the best chowder on the Cape and possibly even the world! One catch: be sure to call ahead to arrange for your carry-out chowder. They like to know you are coming, presumably so that they have enough chowder for the dining-in crowd. The chowder is definitely worth a courtesy call!!

I have been here numerous times for lunch after golf, and it is always great. Service at the bar is friendly and the food excellent. The Rubin is strongly recommended, but they always have great daily specials.

This restaurant takes you back in time as it is on the main road in Brewster in a building that was once an Inn. The interior, therefore, is a bit old fashioned, kind of like a Victorian house with a number of rooms and hallway. Service is friendly. Food is somewhat better than okay with reasonable prices. Try the Mango... More

Staff was always very nice, and the burger and fries are delicious!! The staff have good recommendations for the area as well. Also the salads are nice, especially with sauteed scallops added :) And apparently the pie is out of this world (as per my coworker).

Food was great, staff was engaging and kids loved it. Not to mention this is NOT a seafood tourist shack. Historic house with warmth of small town hospitality.

The Chowder House always has delicious food I just wish they would change up the one vegetarian option they have once in a while, although it is really tasty only being able to eat one thing on the menu has definitely made our group decide to go elsewhere a few times. My boyfriend and a few other friends say the... More
