We were very excited to try this place. The menu we found online made it sound like great seafood selections. The place is quaint and the waiters were friendly and attentive enough. But the food itself was a huge disappointment. Scallops are usually my favorite...More

In my opinion Taylor's Chowder House has the best fish and chips in the Phoenix. Service was great. Portions were huge.

Love the whole belly clams and chowder. The coleslaw- not so much. Love the nautical theme and the server was very friendly and nice. I live across town but always try to make it to Taylors every few months.
