Busy at times

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!

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 of filling and toppings. We also ordered salads after being... More

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
