I have been to the Chowder House four times in recent months. The menu is interesting with daily specials. Grouper with lobster stuffing has been my favorite. Bring your own wine and pay the corkage fee.

This place is sneaky good. Very small and tucked behind a gas station off of State Rd. My family has been eating here for years and are rarely disappointed. Fresh seafood, pasta, steak, pork, all the good stuff. The Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder are delicious and usually very generous with the meat. The fish of the day is hard... More

This is a outstanding restaurant. The owners used to run a similar restaurant in the Valley which was good, but this place blows it out of the water. They have excellent seafood dishes, the best we have found in the Akron area.

Went there on a Thursday evening. Very clever sort of a hippy period décor that was short of eclectic. . . it was not a boring environment and no doubt more lively on the weekend. They are working hard to make this an attractive place. They need to keep working. By virtue of the name, Chowder House, the menu was... More

We've eaten their twice and very much enjoyed the entrees especially the fish. Nice atmosphere but not a large seating area. Only draw back, you have to bring your own wine.

Want to try something REAL different? give this place a try. Very eclectic and cozy. Fun menu with some cool specials. The place is a mixture of 60's funk and contemporary style food. Don't let the outside fool you-it's better than you'd expect.

The chowder house has been listed as Akron's best seafood and featured on cleveland's A list top 100 so it was worth a drive. It's a small, welcoming restaurant with effusive charm and friendly staff. The jukebox is free to play. We opened with a clam chowder which was rich, creamy and balanced with the right amount of cracked pepper.... More

i can't believe there wasn't a line around the block waiting to get in. the food was excellent, the desserts to die for, the service friendly and professional. the place is small and eclectic, everything was fresh. they do not take credit, cash and checks only. worth going to the bank first.
