Had the best fish and chips on the Oregon Coast right here. Fries are very good. Fish was fresh and flavourful. Washed all that goodness down with a yummy IPA. Big place. Decent beer selection. Very nice staff.

Okay fish-and-chips. Nothing to write home about, a bit greasy, and the fries weren't that good, but not bad.

This place has the best chowder in town and even offers it in bread bowls. They also have other sea food options or burgers and sandwiches for those who don't do seafood! Great place to eat while your down in the port/ harbor area!

The Chowder House is always our first stop when we get to Brookings. They have great clam chowder and the clam strips are the best we have eaten. Busy place most of the time but the orders come out fast.

Food is plain, only good thing was a grilled cheese. Fish and calamary was plain tasting. I would not recommend eating here.

Not fit to eat, unless you want to kill flies and eat them. I believe they had to close down. Not surprised since the food was so terrible.

We got the feeling that they were probably trying, but had failed to grasp the basics. One order of chowder failed to arrive, and our server gave conflicting responses when pressed. Fish and chips was good. Overall we felt that they didn't care enough about...More
