Yummy, but small

If you just get a cup (no bread bowl) it will leave you lacking, because it's a bit small for a "bowl" serving. Very yummy, though, both the New England Clam Chowder & the Chicken Noodle Soup.

They have the best chowder on the island... lots of clams and no thickening taste to it. Both styles are great and they also have at least 1 other soup during the summer months.

consistently good and virtually irresistible. This place has been around seemingly forever and the quality never changes. Whenever we are in town and want chowder, this is the place. You can also take it home if you choose to do that as there is no indoor seating.

Every time we go there ,the trip is not complete till you've eaten the chowder from the Country Kettle. Can't wait to get back down there in October for the famous CHOWDER FEST so we can sample some of all the different chowders. GOOD LUCK COUNTRY KETTLE !

We grab some chowder from Country Kettle every summer when we're staying on LBI. Its really some of the best and several varieties available. New England chowda is awesome and has a little kick to it!

Lobster bisque and the Rhode Island Red - WOW, WOW, WOW. Both were outstanding and we were able to snatch the soup during a RARE slow time at the counter. Well worth the wait in the future for sure!
