We arrived in Depoe Bay on our first visit, and my sister said she had seen the sign while driving through the first time. We came back, and voila - a parking spot awaited us right in front of the building! We hustled inside (much to our deight we found they had bathrooms, since we had been holding it awhile...needless... More

We actually stumbled on to this place a couple of years ago while in Depoe Bay on vacation. We just popped in for a quick sandwich while walking around the shoppes. We weren't expecting too much from this little hole in the wall in the middle of Depoe Bay. What a find! My husband had the crab melt, fries and... More

No complaints. Everything was very tasty. Better clam chowder than Moe's. Will be eating there again for sure.

I was the first one in the place for lunch so the service was fast. The man working there was very friendly and attentive. The food is very good, the place looked clean. I would go there again.

My wife and I weren't planning to eat at The Chowder Bowl today. We drove to Depoe Bay from Newport in search of some cheap but delicious Polish hot dogs just down the street, but about half the businesses were closed (it was a Wednesday). I was too hungry to drive back home before eating, so we went into The... More

Food and service were good. Restaurant was clean with friendly service. Husband had the clam chowder, he said it wasn't the best he has ever eaten, but really close. I had the BLT on sour dough. Bacon was crisp and the sour dough bread was some of the best sour dough bread I have tasted.

Just one of those neat place we always stop at when cruising the coast. Depoe Bay is a neat town and always has a great upfront view of the Pacific. After whale watching, shopping or driving, the Chowder Bowl is a favorite place to stop and eat. The food is really good and the family that runs it goes the... More

The Chowder bowl has the best Sea wich (fish sandwich) anywhere. The chowder is to die for. The best part of this place besides the food is the staff Tonya was a joy very friendly and made sure we had everything. When in Depoe Bay you need to eat here.

I had the best chowder and fish and chips there. The interior is nothing amazing, but the view is wonderful. The staff was friendly and it was probably the best cod fish and chips I have had in years.
