“Fresh New Lunch Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Recently we stayed at the Mermaids Muse B&B in Brookings Oregon. During those three days we got to search around for good noon and evening meal sites. One of those was The Chowder House. What great service! They offer excellent food and while plainly furnished (form follows function) the completely new interior was pristine and comfortable. The staff was attentive and they even prepared a special meal for my wife who had to be careful about an allergy. The special Asian Salad with chicken breast strips on top was perfect and they said they might add this to their menu. My clam chowder bowl was the best I've had and that is high praise since the previous favorite was the chowder from The Nautical Inn nearby in Smith River CA. They are newly opened having remodeled a building previously used as a restaurant. My only advice would be to add some amenities to the new restroom and turn up the thermostat in there!! I noticed they were doing take out for local business workers and they have a large space for doing special party occasions. Overall, it is a solid lunch spot with praise worthy food and we will return there in our future trips to the amazing coast.
