We have eaten clam chowder from Maine to all over the Northwest and the Chowder Bowl is the best we've tasted thus far. Besides the chowder we shared an order of clam strips & chips that was outstanding. However, the next time we eat at the Chowder Bowl (there will definitely be a next time!) I will not order anything... More

This restaurant was recommended by a co-worker and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is definitely casual. The wait staff is exceptional. The food is above average. The chowder was good. The chili was good. The garlic bread could be better. We will go back again in the future.

Don't miss the clam chowder here, it is the best. Also had fish taco with cod and it was extremely fresh!

Loved this place. The clam chowder was amazing! Portions are huge, so I wish I had been hungrier. It was so good!

A charming place with friendly attentive staff. I had the Fried Oysters and chips. The meal was very tasty and filling. There were many other things on the menu that I would like to order the next time I am back in Newport. I also liked the decor of classic retro seaside adverts for Nye Beach.

We had a very good dinner at a reasonable price. My husband had Clams and Chips. The "chips" we're discs of fried potatoes. I had the chowder and a Shrimp Louie that was large and full of shrimp. Very enjoyable.

A step below Mo's in terms of chowder... but outstanding steamed clams... the best in Newport! The service is friendly, attentive, and do a great job! The IPA on tap and short walk to Nye Beach and art galleries are a big plus. It is easy to park here too!

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome! The Shrimp Louie that I had was fit for a king! And like the title indicates, there was a TON (or at least close to a pound, it seemed) of shrimp on it! I will be posting a pic and I want to give this warning: Items in the picture are definitely LARGER in person! Oh, I... More

Chowder Bowl has made a significant turn around in the many years I've been a regular visiting Nye Beach in Newport (pushing 20 at this point). I think it may have gone through an ownership change in recent years ... or maybe just getting with the times. Years ago it was a classic greasy spoon seafood place ... reminding me... More
