“Deeeeelicious!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Love this place! They make yummy fudge. Sometimes I even get a big box, sometimes one square in a bag. They have a flavor of the week special. My faves are triple chocolate and peanut butter chocolate. You must stop there if you are in LBI. A nice treat to bring home, too.

“Used to be great-Was not impressed last visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

The best part about this place is the location. Right at Bay Village, you can enjoy a quick bowl of chowda in a bread bowl, while shopping. In years past, this was always the chowda to get. We always had to make a stop at Country Kettle. This past visit, however, I was not impressed. With Chowderfest looming around the corner, they seemed to have changed their recipe from what it used to be. Now there seems to be too much "stuff" . If you like spicy chowder with alot of herbs and spices, go for it. If you want a more creamy, less "stuff" filled chowder, you might consider other places
