Great dinner!

We had a really nice dinner here. The clam chowder was great, my kids loved their shrimp and chips, and the oysters were delicious. My husband didn't care much for the cole slaw, but everything else was great- including the service and price. We'll definitely go back!

My husband and I gave been coming to the Chowder Bowl for nearly 15 years. We almost always enjoy the food but this last visit was incredible! The Seawich sandwich is a very good option for lunch. Two large fried fish filets on a large bun with lettuce tomato and tartar sauce and cole slaw on the side. We ordered... More

Most recently, we had one bowl of chowder with garlic bread another bread bowl of chowder, along with fish and chips. This chowder is one of the tastiest I have had anywhere. The fish was fresh and tasty, and the coating... More

Excellent clam chowder as usual. I am not a fan of chowder but this one is awesome!! My son had the mozzarella sticks, they were yummy along with a huge Caesar Salad. Right off Nye Beach, grab it to go and have a picnic on the beach!! A must when visiting Newport!

The service was good, and that's the only reason I don't give it one star. The clam chowder, advertised as the best in town, was subpar at best, and tasted like something I could have easily gotten in a can. The shrimp in the shrimp sandwich also looked like it came from a can. The coleslaw was runny and tasted... More

Reviews told me their Clam Chowder was the best. To me it didn't have anything extra - kinda bland. I also had the special Chipolte tacos. Nothing special here either except a large portion that I was advised to share and I did.

Excellent place to Eat. Have eaten here several times over the years and have always enjoyed the delicious food and the friendly staff. The place is very popular and can be very crowded (and noisy) during busy times. The Public Parking area next to the beach is usually crowded too. On nice days, check out the outdoor seating.
