Made to Order

I met some friends for lunch and they suggested Chowder House. I'm not from Fairbanks and I hadn't heard of it and probably wouldn't have stopped if I drove by because it looks tired from the outside, however as I was waiting for my friends I watched people come in and pick up orders; they... read more

We ordered two bowls of soup and two sandwiches and a cup of soup for the kiddo. We also got two milkshakes and the whole lot cost $45! I almost fell over when she rang me up. It is soup and sandwiches people, not steak and lobster. I know that this is Alaska, but that was outrageously priced. Now the... More

Best chowder ever! Loved the clam chowder, but the halibut chowder was fantastic. Basic sandwiches, good variety of choices.

Food is pretty good and always fresh. Also it is typically pretty fast with the orders. They used to have this french dressing that I loved but they don't anymore. Overall we enjoy it and go every now and then. Also they have a small kids menu which helps.

Nice place to get soup, sandwich or salad. Used to think they have the best chowder in the area until I had the chowder at Chena Hot Springs Resort. Now they are number 2 in the chowder pecking list. Decent sandwiches, good salads and ok service. Busy during lunch!

My husband ordered a salat and I ordered a salmon chowder, plus two sandwiches. We got our sandwiches but never the rest of it. As we checked out we still where charged for the items we never received. They didn't care. We'll never go there again We just left, food was ok, service slow,

Been going here for years and the quality is always very good. I love the halibut corn and smoked salmon chowders, and often have a hard time choosing. The sandwiches are some of the freshest ingredients I have seen around town and they have great options with several breads, meats, cheeses, veggies, and dressings. Service is usually good, nothing exceptional,... More

Perhaps not haute quisine but good food that is prepared on the premises at a very reasonable price. The staff were friendly and helpful, the inside was clean and nicely presented, more diner style than restaurant. The portions were of a good size, and as usual for us we ordered too much. If you want a decent meal at a... More

The crab Sandwich -- delicious. The chowder is decent, but the crab sandwich and the quiche are really the hidden gems at the Chowder House.

I had a great experience here! I ordered a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant with soup and chips, and it was delectable! The chicken salad wasn't too heavy and just right, while the croissant made tied everything together. The soup was awesome and a wonderful way to end the meal. I will be back!
