Stopped for a quick lunch. Service was good, very friendly staff. Good chowder & salad perfect for a light lunch. French dip got 2 thumbs up & kids menu was terrific. We'll go again!

Your typical establishment. Average burger and fries. Nothing to rave about sadly. There's a cheaper cafe right down the street. go there!

While wandering around DePoe Bay we stopped in for a quick lunch. Glad we did! The clam chowder was special and the lunch entrees were good too. Friendly people and great service helped make this a wonderful stop!

Grabbed Chowder to go after our boat trip, it was good, even after a long car ride. Lady was definitely working the front alone but she handled it well and got us all in and out very quickly.

The Chowder Bowl was a favorite of my wifes' growing up. I guess the memory was better than this visit. The seafood was horid and all of the food was subpar. Wish I gone to Mo's.

Got into Depoe Bay around 1:00pm. Beautiful area. Beautiful views. Debated on which restaurant to eat and I had been craving clam chowder... what better place than the Chowder Bowl... Bad choice. Service was bad after waiting for almost 20 minutes with only a few people in the restaurant. Prices seemed good UNTIL you order the fish chips and you... More
