“THIS is the best Clam Chowder!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Just want to announce that Dory's has the best clam chowder on the coast. There is another restaurant that claims that fame....but they are mistaken. I challenge you to take the taste test! The rest of the food is great as well....and the staff are top notch, the the clam chowder is the reason to go!

“Always Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We love eating at Dory Cove when we are in town. Great fish and chips and, of course, clam chowder. We also enjoy the fish shop next door, stopping for jerky.

Service is great. The clam chowder is awesome. The fresh crab cocktail was amazing! They offer take out as well.

“Seen better days”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Apparently this is a "new" location. Parking very limited, right off Hwy 101. If you're looking for atmosphere, keep looking. Staff very pleasant, food was hot, but so-so. Prices were "big city" for what you got. Ladie's room down a hall, through the kitchen (don't look, or you'll wish you hadn't eaten there) & into the smokehouse store next door. Wouldn't go back.

“Love the Clam Chowder”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I would come here again for the clam chowder. It was thick and yummy. A lot of the food is fried. Typical coastal restaurant choices for food. Service is excellent. Prices are average, but not the best bargain in town.
