Nice restaurant in the Nye Beach area of Newport. I think it used to be the older part of this seaside city, but it is being reshaped into an artsy area withnice cafés and eateries. Clam chowder was excellent, as were the fried oysters and clams.

I've been meaning to review this place for months. I kept reading about the wonderful waiter, James. The food was ok, but we would go back just for him. So friendly and helpful! We ordered the fish and chips and chowder. The chowder was a bit bland. The fish and chips portion was huge and is enough for two. The... More

Parked on the street to go eat at Nan's Irish pub. Walked down one block to see the beach, on the way back decided to eat at the Chowder Bowl. Good cup of thick chowder, really good battered fish - has a thicker cornmeal batter. Fish sandwich came with two large pieces of battered fish and coleslaw. Bread pudding was... More

Stopped in today for a burger and clam chowder. The chowder is way over rated. It was basically potato soup with no clam flavor at all. Have had better chowder at Newport Cafe, Mo's and Flynn's Steakhouse in Albany Oregon. The burger was okay, but was dry as there was no condiments and ketchup was the only thing on the... More

I have tried all the Clam chowder I could find on the Oregon Coast and this has the BEST chowder you can find. I have family here and this place is consistently good. All clams and no filler potatoes. The cup is plenty and the bowl come in a round loaf of bread and is HUGE. Fried clams and steamers... More

Really enjoyed this place for a late lunch. I ordered cod fish and chips and my wife ordered fried oysters and chips. We were surprised when our orders came, as we literally received "chips" not fries as we usually expect. They were thin slices of potatoes, deep fried and seasoned. They turned out to be very good. WE also were... More

The chowder in a bread bowl was excellent. My son loved the round fries and my wife loved the fish & chips.

First the chowder is great! I've eaten chowder from the east to the west coast and this ranks in the top 3! Service is good: we came in with a group of 24 and were given prompt service. The servers were very polite and really cared about what they did. It seemed like they really bought into this place and... More

We were slightly disappointed by the food at the chowder house. It was just OK in huge portions. We ordered a shrimp Louis salad, a Chinese chicken salad, calamari and the kids chicken and fries. The salads came with a cup of chowder, and I will say, the chowder is delicious! The salads were huge and lacked flavor. The calamari... More

We stopped in for a quick informal dinner after driving all day to get to Newport. Staff was friendly, food came quickly & the chowder was delicious! We'll be back.
