This was our first trip to Maine. We wanted to go to the Ramp because of the reviews, but we couldn't get in. Lucky for us! We went to the Cape Pier Chowder House right next door. This place has the best clam rolls and lobster rolls we've ever had, and we're from New England!
The fried clams were sweet and tender with no dark oil or grit, and the batter was fresh and light. They were outstanding! The lobster roll was delicious, large, and at $12.99 less than half the prices of places like David's KPT (where we got a miniscule lobster roll there for $31).
Others in our party of eight ordered the seafood chowder,steamers, the fish sandwich, the fried haddock plate, and the scallop roll. All were delicious.
We loved this place so much we came back the next day! We were treated to more of the same fantastic food.
At times, things just work out! We were so lucky to have found the Chowder House!
Our hope is that you will go to the Chowder House at Cape Porpoise, Maine.
I have no connection to this restaurant, but I want others to get the best value for their money!
