If You Like Chowda, you have to try this place, and it has a great flavor you will not forget. It can be very busy at times, but the service is fast, and the food is great!

small place tucked in the middle of a tourist shopping attraction: Bay Village. no where to eat inside, but the storefront (which is about all it is), does have some tables nearby and caters to take out. the NE clam chowder is quite good- our son loves it in a bread bowl, which is more expensive, but the bread was...

New England clam chowda in a bread bowl. Awesome. Worth the high $. A must do when near the shops. 5 types of soups. With or without bread bowl you'll love it. Then a fresh delight at the bakery next store.

Bay Village is a great place to find fun, ice cream, baked goods and restaurants. Country Kettle Chowda is an awesome respite of quality food.....Soup! The Lobster Bisque is super and the Rhode Island Clam Chowder (Manhattan & New England mixed) was great too! Definitely worth a visit and better than the alternatives at Bay Village. BTW....it's a teeny teeny... More

Country Kettle has some tables outside of the store, which is just a storefront so there's not much of an atmosphere which is okay since most buy the soup for take out.. The girl at the counter was a little surly and not at all friendly. Since I was getting the soup for take out, I overlooked this and got... More

The only problem I have here is what type of chowder to order. They all taste amazing. This little gem is always packed with people and the service is fast and efficient. Try the Rhode Island red which is a mix of manhatten and new England chowders...mmmmmm

I ate here a few years ago and enjoyed it. Our latest visit was one of the worst eating experiences we've had in our memory. The kids working were not helpful and seemed to expect us to know exactly what we wanted despite the poorly written and confusing menu boards. We tried both the red and white clam chowders in...

Such great chowder! Waited on line (which moved very fast) and found one of the nearby picnic tables to eat. Fabulous soup and the bread bowl was awesome!

Gotta bread bowl ($3 extra/bowl) of the New England and Rhode Island Red (mix of N.E. & R.I.) both were Excellent & Very tasty! Have to admit i still prefer the N.E. but we think we got more in our bowl with the R.I. red.
