Cold spring night, tired and hungry, we just made it in before closing. We were so cold we ordered bowls of lobster bisque. Very tasty and warming although the bowls were pricy and more like oversized cups. People were friendly and service was good.

My family and I have been to The Eastport Chowder House several times over the years and the food, service and selection have always been top quality. Some of the juciest and freshest seafood you and get. The land lovers selections are just as good.

The best Haddock!!! Best service of an entire trip. The wait staff was willing to help and kept the kitchen open just for us.

Let me quickly say that "dog friendly" refers to the deck only. However, sitting on the deck is a plus. You can watch the Deer Island ferry pass by and keep track of the activities on the dock and beach below. There are only five...More

Enjoyed the food and service. Fresh sea food. Owner seemed to enjoy his job and customers. Ate here more than once. Enjoyed sitting outside with view of the water. Very accommodating to customers.

This place is right on the water so the views are great. There is inside and outside seating. The inside is casual and looks like a place should next to the water. Good food. Good service.
