Great food and the BEST chowder in Newport

I've had chowder at every restaurant and bar in Newport and the CB is the best. Not too thick (a common problem), perfect balance among bacon, clams, and potatoes. Robust flavor, so many are bland, and tasting of clams rather than other, cheaper ingredients. I don't make clam chowder. I go to... read more

Very clean and the service was great. We were starved after a morning at the Yaquina lighthouse and on the beach but the chowder really missed the mark. It lacked any real flavor, we couldn't find clams at all and it wasn't even very hot. We ordered the garlic bread and it was awful. In a town full of chowder... More

Great little spot tucked away in a back alley in Nye Beach. As part of our fish and chips and chowder experience down the coast we stopped here because of the rave reviews. They were spot on and the chowder, fish, and chips were all excellent. Some of the best chowder I've ever had as well! The place gets packed... More

My memory of the chowder was that there was more clam in every bite than what we experienced. That said the chowder tastes great and was clammy enough for all but the most diehard chowder enthusiasts. The bread pudding on the other hand was every bit as wonderful as I remembered. Definite worth a stop.

My wife and I went to Newport for our honeymoon, we stopped by and it was great. We're decently doing here every time we go to Nye beach.

I had a cup of clam chowder and a very nice tasting cheeseburger. My wife had the cod fish and chips which was also very good. I like the potato rounds that came with our meal. My daughter had the chicken strips from the kids menu which she liked. It was plenty of food for everyone. In the warmer months... More

We have walked by this one many times. It was recent reviews on TripAdvisor that got us to try it. The place is busy and I can see why! We chowder and fish and chips. We had salad instead of fries. Ready to go back!

This place has very fast service. That is because the fish comes breaded and frozen! You do not come to the coast for Costco fish. Maybe I am wrong but the staff could not tell me how it was breaded. The service was good and friendly.

I thank you for leaving a review for us on trip advisor. I find that every experience shared, good or bad, gives us the opportunity to improve. I'm sorry the employee you spoke with was not knowledgeable about the way we prepare our fish and left you in a position to only assume the worst. The truth is that for... More

We were recommended by the desk person at our motel to dine here. Tucked away in a corner of Nye Beach in Newport, The Chowder Bowl was a little hard to find initially. Once we found it, we entered and experienced a no-nonsense fish house. Photos on the wall were the main attempt at ambiance and they were fascinating--depicting turn... More
