Depoe Bay is small but nice and quaint. The Chowder Bowl was a nixe quick stop for what I wanted ...a cup of chowder and a fish sandwich...pretty good...hit the spot...but not so much that I must go back.

The Chowder Bowl in Depoe Bay is by far my favorite place to get clam chowder. The chowder is smooth, full body in taste and very filling. Not only is the chowder tasty, but the menu is full with a wide variety of choices. The Chowder Bowl is very family oriented and kid friendly. There is always a train rolling... More

My husband and I stopped at Depoe Bay to go to the Whale Center and toured the little seaport. Here we found The Chowder Bowl on the main drag. The restaurant was clean and had plenty of seating. The place was about 1/3 full with one waiter. He was excellent. Really organized, quick and everyone was waited on quickly with... More

The Bowl is what I expected from a seaside restaurant. A nice variety on the menu, decent prices and a friendly staff make for a laid back experience with a great view. I had a seafood salad and a bowl of chowder, tasty and economical.

Very clean place. Quick service. Food was hot. The chowder was nothing to write home about. Added cornbread, pepper and Tabasco sauce to add favors.

Not clean. The table and salt / pepper shakers were tacky to touch. I got the fish and chips. I grew up on the coast and have eaten a lot of fish and chips and am pretty certain this was the worst I've ever had. I only ate half, which is way out of character. It was like they fried... More

We stopped last year and loved the food! A well kept secret and a Must do stop! We shared a basket of onion rings beer and chowder! Service was great and the kids and adults like to watch the trains!

I enjoyed the fish and chips at The Chowder Bowl more than any other place on the coast. Not greasy and plenty to eat. I really like their clam chowder as well, it is very flavorful, hot and delicious.
