Best chowder I've had. Entree was good, but not a fan of balsamic on fish. Over all - gourmet food at a reasonable price. Cozy setting.

Food was good, I wouldn't say great. The chowder was no better than a canned chowder so don't bother with that, the scallops and swordfish were delicious. The service is great! Fast and really watches your water and bread basket. Expensive but to be expected on the vineyard.

So yummy, attentive service, overall great time. We went around 5pm, got seated right away. I do think a reservation is recommended if you go later. Very popular place.

As always October is a great time to visit MV for Octoberfest and their small batch Pumpkin Ale is always a pleasure. Each year has a differently brewed recipe and small batch of the locally grown pumpkins! Awesome stuff here.

My husband and friends visited this restaurant. We had no issue getting a reservation which was a good start. We all ordered the chowder and it was fantastic. It had celery in it which made it different. Yum. I ordered the swordfish and it was NOT fishy at all. Very good. Everyone in our party enjoyed their dinners. The staff... More

We had appetizers that were both very good. Our server was polite and the food came out fast. Willing to try it again next time we visit.

We were trying every place each night and this was one of the best (in Oak Bluff). The restaurant is actually peaceful compared to the traffic and hubbub outside. The menu was nice but the specials were what we all ordered and weren't disappointed. Good drinks and the servers were professional and happy to be there. Certainly would recommend and... More

We went twice in a week for the clam chowder and enjoyed it both times. I also tried the beet salad the first time...don't get the beet salad! Just saying.

I was looking for a quick lunch of clam chowder while traveling alone. Since they have a deck outside with great music playing, I decided to give it a try. The chowder was good and creamy but a bit too much celery for my taste. The clams in the chowder were excellent and fresh. The bowl kept the chowder warm... More

I had the pleasure of dining at the Chowder Co this past Saturday evening, and enjoyed everything about it. The food is phenomenal and the service is outstanding! I highly recommend this memorable restaurant, as it was the highlight of our weekend stay!
