Great Chowder and Fish tacos

This is a great little place right on the beach. The chowder is great and the fish tacos were the best! Service was great and very friendly.

We tried the Chowder Bowl twice, with a couple of years in between visits, and have come to the conclusion that the food is just not that good. Almost fast food-like, in fact. We won't be going back. The staff is friendly enough, and pretty efficient, but my husband, who is a chowder person, was not impressed.

Nye Beach location makes for crowds and parking problems. Noisy but good service and good seafood choices. Prices average for a tourist town. The clam chowder was one of the best my husband has had, and he orders it almost everywhere.

Heard about this restaurant accidentally when I overheard a man telling the hotel front desk how much he liked the place. This is seafood that is not greasy. I don't normally like fried seafood, but it was easy on the stomach and very tasty. The chips were round potatoes that were sliced thin and not greasy. Very yummy! The place... More

I've spent years looking for good chowder, this place has the best. Homemade,thick chowder big potatoes , big clams which I'd normally find gross, but theirs are super tender so it's ok.

We had lunch here twice during our most recent visit to Newport. The fish tacos and seafood chips the first day were excellent, and the cup of chowder which we shared was so good that the next day we each had a bowl for lunch. Good ambiance and very friendly service.

We'd eaten a late breakfast so were planning on having just a bowl of chowder to hold us over until dinner ... until we looked at the menu and suddenly the taste buds were tantalized into ordering a substantial lunch. Still had the chowder -- each of our choices came with a cup of chowder, thick with clams and rich... More

This is a nice, comfy restaurant with good food. The fish & chips were OK but their slumgullion was great and their bread & butter pudding with brandy sauce was just amazing, the best we've ever had. The tables are well-spaced, no view but that's OK, we loved the quaint atmosphere. Friendly and fast service, our waiter was running! We... More

We rented a beach house in Nye and this place was within walking distance. We preferred to do take out because our house overlooked the Pacific :-) but sampled a few things and all were delicious. We had some wine while waiting for our meals since we were "on foot" and did not have to worry about driving. The staff... More

The food was pretty good here and the staff very friendly. I just was not expecting to spend $50 on lunch for 3.
