“Disappointing!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

I checked on line to find a great place to eat. This was not it. Don't know what people are raving about. Limited menu. Average food. Average service and not much atmosphere. Won't go again.

“Great staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Stopped in to get a bowl of chowder and salad for dinner to go. The host/owner?? was wonderful, so friendly. He gave me a large soup and the salad was huge, I ate it for 2 days. Would definitely go back.

“Cheery service and good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch on the deck this week. They allowed us to have our dog under the table, nice of them. Good food, decent atmosphere. This area is very hilly with limited parking, so accessibility can be an issue for those with mobility issues.

A good family sea food restaurant with a lovely atmosphere.It was not too expensive and did not serve over generous portion sizes. Very friendly and attentive service.

“Where the locals eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

There are better places to eat in Newport, but they are also more expensive. Chowder Bowl, in historic Nye Beach, is a good combination of quality food at affordable prices, and the staff is great. My wife had a caesar salad that was, as claimed by the server, gigantic, and a cup of chowder. The salad was okay, but the chowder was exceptional -- fresh clams from a local oyster farm that were very tender in a base that avoids the gravy-like consistency that characterizes some more well-known local establishments. I had the fish and chips -- cod in a very light batter with round, sliced fried potatoes on a bed of cabbage that cannot properly be described as cole slaw. The Chowder Bowl does a year-round business because locals know the food is fresh, yet reasonable. The menu also offers shrimp, oysters, and other local fare, as well as a full menu of burgers and other sandwiches. It's a great place for families with children and has a rustic charm typical of the Oregon Coast.
