Spice's Original Halibut Chowder spice-halibut-chowder Our Halibut Chowder is loaded with fish. We use only fresh Pacific halibut. We even thicken our chowder with cod. This creates an incredible velvety rich chowder that satisfies and is, in addition, Gluten Free. We serve our chowder by the cup or bowl. Try it during the cool Autumn days and evenings.

Spice-Full-Bar
Spicy bold flavors have always been a part of my life. Born and raised in Indonesia by my Eurasian mother and Armenian father, I’ve spent my life studying and enjoying the flavors from several continents. Thus creating a multi-cultural menu at Spice came naturally to me. Together with executive chef and manager Kathy Costalonga and her culinary background of international cuisine and talent for stunning plate presentation, we have created a small paradise here at Spice, with Asian decor, a tantalizing menu and a view of the Siuslaw River Bay.

About
Under New Ownership since November 2015. Our goal is to achieve the highest level of culinary and service standards. We work hard to source local organic fruits and vegetables and regularly modify our menu to accommodate the seasons. Our beef comes from pure-bred steers born in the U.S. and fed a 100% vegetarian diet, free from sub-therapeutic antibiotics, growth hormones and Beta agonists. Our seafood has been caught using the sustainable traditional fishing method of hook and line. This method has minimal environmental impact and as all fish are caught live, it ensures they are in top condition before being stored in ice and delivered to us. We are a chef owned and operated establishment dedicated
