This Chowder House is located along the tourist strip of Depoe Bay. There are several other places nearby, but I recommend this one due to the quality of the food and variety of choices. As expected, they feature seafood, but they also have burgers, BLT's and chicken. The food is varied, well prepared and served hot. All in our party... More

During a camping trip to Oregon Coast my wife and I stopped here for clam chowder and fish and chips. Both were outstanding. Nice outside deck.

My husband asked the server about gluten free. I have a gut disease that is affected by it. He was told that they could make accommodations, In reality there was nothing on the menu that they could accommodate. They put croutons on the salad. All of the dressings had thickening agents, so I ate it dry. The french fries are... More

For a relaxed, but nice meal in Depoe Bay, The Chowder Bowl is a good place to choose. Their food is good, the service is nice, and the place is relaxed. They can make many of there dishes gluten free, but they do not offer gluten free clam chowder. This was the only downfall for me. I watched my family... More

Great clam chowder and a variety of sandwiches and burgers. One of few places to grab a bite to eat along the bay front.

Visited the Chowder Bowl for a quick lunch and ordered clam chowder and the soup had very little clams, it was mostly cream soup. We also wanted the fried calamari and they were out. Dissapointed 😟.
