“Another unremarkable seafood eatery in Astoria in midst of several failed restaurants bars and lounges.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Dishes somewhat disappointing.
This had been a fresh fish market that also served pleasing delicious affordable fare. That could not make it either. It was quite good. Perfect location.
This place has a nice bar better than the chowder house itself. But nothing special novel Hawaiian motif. Same owner as Godfathers Book Store.

“unexpected delight”

This restaurant is located in the downtown area on a corner. Mostly locals eat here. It really is a small cafe but the food is really good and prices reasonable. Tyr the shrimp tacos and the chowder. good stuff

“great chowder”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Reminds me of being in Hawaii with the decor and casual atmosphere. The fish is good and there's live music too.

“Excellent Food & Prices, Friendly and Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

My husband and I went to Charlie's Chowder House on a recommendation, being we were looking for a good place to eat and didn't know the area very well. When we first walked into Charlie's, we were greeted warmly by Kaylee, the head waitress and were served in a timely manner. Kaylee is the friendliest and most genuine waitress we have ever met. She made us feel right at home and is the heart and soul of the place. The food was excellent and freshly made. My husband raved about the clam chowder saying it's the best he's had on the Oregon Coast. We came back twice after. Whenever we are in Astoria, we will be definitely stopping in at Charlie's Chowder House!
