If your beach visit has to include clam chowder this is the place. Their chowder is definitely the best in Newport and the Nye beach area is Newport's "Greenwich Village" so is a fun stop when you are in Newport.

We have come to the coast for many years but this is the first time we came to the chowder bowl. It was recommended by friends who love the chowder. Cute little place to watch people go by.

I go to the chowder bowl every time I come to the beach. I love their clam chowder and usually bring some home. Also, great fish and chips. I don't think you could get a bad meal their.

For years, I along with others I know have frequented this eatery. The food, service and price was always excellent and we always looked forward to returned. However, once Chowder Bowl expanded their about double their original size. For some reason thereafter, the Chowder Bowl increased their prices substantially, the prompt and friendly service diminished greatly and the food quality... More

My family and I stayed in the Nye Beach district on Newport and stopped here for lunch. Food was great and also reasonable priced. Good place for a nice lunch and only a few blocks from the beach.

The sea food is great and the cost reasonable, especially for the amount of food you get. You might want to share with the amount of food you get. James is the best waiter I have ever had. He has a great big smile. He will tell you he loves his job. Which shows a lot to the owners! I... More

I don't know about 4 1/2 out of 5, but certainly 4, for sure. Good simple food in a clean cafe environment. Right by the beach so the fish didn't have to go far.

As you'd expect, great chowder. The fish and chips were really good too. It could use some updating, but that's the beach for you!
