Average service, OK food.

We got the feeling that they were probably trying, but had failed to grasp the basics. One order of chowder failed to arrive, and our server gave conflicting responses when pressed. Fish and chips was good. Overall we felt that they didn't care enough about their customers.

Food is plain, only good thing was a grilled cheese. Fish and calamary was plain tasting. I would not recommend eating here.

Not fit to eat, unless you want to kill flies and eat them. I believe they had to close down. Not surprised since the food was so terrible.

Our first experience in 2012 was very good: it was a catered banquet for volunteers by the local hospice: food was good (better than your average banquet) and the sheet cake for dessert was WONDERFUL. Fast forward 6 months: I ordered a cake from them for another event and it was strictly mediocre (same baker). Couple months later, Hospice ordered... More

Chowder was very good. Green salad w/ pecans n dried cranberries w/ blue cheese was great. Fish n chips were good. We ordered out, and the missed a bowl of chowder...there was still enough food to go around, so no biggie.

We went here with friends and the service was friendly and quick. We all loved the chowder and fish & chips and clam strips and chips. Our friend really liked the fish tacos.

Recently we stayed at the Mermaids Muse B&B in Brookings Oregon. During those three days we got to search around for good noon and evening meal sites. One of those was The Chowder House. What great service! They offer excellent food and while plainly furnished (form follows function) the completely new interior was pristine and comfortable. The staff was attentive... More
