One of the best selection of chowders on the island!

They specialize in chowder, so you know it has to be fresh, and delicious! They offer a few different styles and you can get them in a regular bowl, bread bowl or do take out.

We've been visiting LBI every summer for five years and getting a few quarts of chowder at Country Kettle Chowda has become a family tradition. Their traditional clam chowder has an exceptional flavor (and tasted amazing on this rainy vacation day!). It's def a takeout place, so plan to bring it home or visit on a nice day so you... More

Very good chowder - both red and white and also mixed. Outstanding lobster bisque. Hot, tasty, fresh, quick but not inexpensive. Takeout only. Some tables outside. Almost always open and worth visiting.

I have never been to a food establishment where food is touched with bare hands... its unsanitary! No gloves, no napkin, no tissue paper - just picking up a sample of the fudge with her hands and offering it to us on her bare palm. Not to mention the first impression of walking into the store where 6 young employees... More

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.
