My favorite coast restaurant

I absolutely love the Chowder Bowl! It is my go-to restaurant in Newport. The chowder is AMAZING! Thick, not too many potatoes, hot, and the pat of butter on the top adds just the right touch! The garlic bread...perfectly toasted...yum! I had this meal planned for weeks prior to my visit for my... read more

If you're going to call yourself 'Chowder Bowl' the expectations are high. This place does not disappoint. Steps from gorgeous Nye Beach, this fun restaurant gives Mo's a run for it's money with tasty Clam Chowder.(Having tasted Mo's version, I have to say I preferred The Chowder Bowl's Offering) Our Server pro-actively comped a dish when it took too long...

Chowder Bowl has delicious clam chowder (sorry Mo's you can't compete with Chowder Bowl). Whenever we are nearby we stop to have clam chowder AND if you are a Bread Pudding lover you MUST try theirs. Truly, my husband is a bread pudding snob (always in search of bread pudding that tastes like his grandmothers) and this is the closest!... More

We loved the chowder bowl! Shrimp kids meal was great with homemade fries. We will return again and again.

I hate seafood, but I do love sandwiches and the fries were delicious!! My friends loved the clam chowder, but not as much as they love Mo's.

Seafood delight in the NYE area. Clams & oysters galore but the chowder reigns supreme. Generous portions, great service.

A great place to have a good bowl of chowder after a long walk on a beautiful beach. Right in the heart of quaint Nye Beach.

We always look forward to a night at the Chowder Bowl! The seafood is fresh and prepared perfectly every time. Some great choices on the menu as well as some creative specials. And the chowder is as good as any on the coast.Excellent service by friendly staff and a very comfortable casual environment.

Sorry Mo's. Quite possibly the best clam chowder I have ever eaten was at the Chowder bowl at Nye beach.

Was pleasantly surprised after one of the reviews said this place was kinda run down. It is anything but run down! They have great service and a great atmosphere! Not to mention location, as its a few steps from the beach!
