Multiple Chowders available on a Thursday

Several chowder choices and sandwiches were available on a snowy, February Thursday. The chowder came quickly and tasted good. We tried two different choices, a corn halibut and a new england clam. I had to laugh that New England Clam was available in Alaska. The sandwiches had a decent amount... read more

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!

Just another mediocre Fairbanks food establishment, only 1 star because rude girl behind the counter. Don't trust the good ratings from locals in Fairbanks, they really don't know what good food is.

I frequent this restaurant very often and they never let me down. Staff is always fast, friendly and efficient. One of my favorite lunch time spots. My only complaint is that I always end up kicking myself for not just making a sandwich at home. Everything made here could be made at home very easily. Convenience and service come with... More

We were on a week-long Fairbanks winter vacation and saw this place had high TripAdvisor ratings, so we thought we'd check it out. The ratings are well justified. We went early on a cold, snowy Saturday evening so missed the crowds -- no wait and no difficulty getting service. Attentive waitstaff took care of us quickly. My wife had corn... More

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 tables are small and close together, but... 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.
