Yummy chowder

My family loved the chowder. They thought it was the best on the coast. The help was extremely helpful and kind. It is located by the beach. You could eat outside, which was really relaxing. We all enjoyed what we ordered.

The family had the clam chowder. It was not as creamy as some but had a lot of flavor. Definitely an item you should get if you go here. I tried the Pulled Salmon BBQ sandwich. It had a bit of a bite and tasted ok. I would have preferred to not had the onions included in the bbq sauce.... More

As one who loves chowder, my father and I thought we would take the family there and quickly learned that the place did not live up to it's name. It took a long while place our order and a lot longer to get the food. The only thing worse than the chowder was the service.

I'd seen good reviews so we thought we'd try it -- and were disappointed. Like many people we've tried chowder all up and down the Oregon and Washington coast. I expected better than average chowder (it's called The Chowder Bowl, after all), but we all felt it was bland and lacking in ingredients -- pretty much flour and water with... More

Went there for a quick sandwich lunch. Had the tuna melt and fries. Sandwich was tiny and there were about 10 fries. Friendly service but I would not go there again. 10 bucks for that?!

Stop here for Clam S=Chowder at reasonable price. A very nice Mom owned beach front place with picnic style tables and far from pretentious looking. But food is good and reasonable. Not for fine ding or ambiance just good eats. Son of owner runs and serves.

We ate lunch there and the food was good and the service even better. The menu is similar to that of a family style restaurant.

Stopped in just to grab some chowder. Not the best, but good. Still in search for the best chowder on the coast.
