Always Great!

Let me start with my only complaint... Being lactose intolerant, most of their soups are cream based, with that said, I always find something on the menu to please. Their unique ordering gives you the ability to build the sandwich the custom way you want it and assure your order is correct. The... read more

We ordered the special, egg salad sandwich and cup of soup (halibut chowder) ($12) and a half a french dip sandwich with a bowl of chicken noodle soup. The bill ended up being 30 bucks. The food wasn't worth 30 bucks. Not even close. The egg salad was bland and had no flavor. It was also dry. I had to... More

After driving to North Pole, AK we wanted to get something to eat. Neither one of us were extremely hungry, do we decided to find a place that sold Chowder. We found the Chowder House online and said we would try it. It is a small place the locals go to. The Chowder was good. Definitely a place to try.

Husband and I both had the Halibut Corn Chowder. I also had a roast beef/cheddar cheese/veggies on toasted ciabatta bread. The food was VERY good. Loved the chowder. Service was good. Highly recommend.

I got the French-dipped sandwich and halibut chowder and hours later had a raging stomachache. Truly disappointed, since the chowder was really good.

I expected this place to be easy to find and quite a sight from the way everyone talked about it. The building is hard to spot and very small. With the name, "Chowder House" I was extremely disappointed that they only offer one soup of the day and a couple chowders. The bulk of the menu is sandwiches. I was... More

This place is a must in Fairbanks... It's small but worth the wait!! The soups and sandwiches are made fresh daily with local fresh food. I hear the pies are great too but I have never left enough room to try them! Yum!!

I come to the chowder house quite often. The service is always great and the food is delicious. I can always get in and out in a reasonable amount of time and the food is always consistent. I would recommend the Chowder House to anyone :)

We were looking for some seafood. After we sat down the waitress said, Oh , your in the wrong place! And suggested another place, but we stayed, glad ! The clam chowder was v good and I don't like clams! Design your own sandwiches. A good expererience.

When I first arrived in Fairbanks a year ago, I checked Tripadvisor and decided to try this place out. It is a hole in the wall with a diner feel... which isn't bad because it can make you feel like a local. You write your order on a piece of paper and give it to the waitress. What boggled my...
