We drove for an hour and a half to eat at the Chowder Bowl. We were not disappointed. We had their chowder years ago and loved it. It was as good as ever. When we got there people were waiting to be seated but they got us in really fast. My husband enjoyed their fish and chips. Their garlic bread... More

It was much more than I was expecting. Very good. The Cole slaw on the side was tasty too. This place is a Hot Spot, especially on the weekend, so I recommend to get there when the first open or on a week day.

We came here for lunch after being at the beach & were very surprised at how good the food was!! We've lived in Newport for 7 months but hadn't been here yet. We'll definitely be back!

This was actually my 3rd time coming to this little restaurant. I am from Scotland but my company HQ is in Oregon so I tend to have a trip over here once a year. I was accompanied by one of my colleagues from our Paris office who had not been here before. I had tried to explain about the Chowder... More

Lively little place with a nice local feeling. The staff was efficient and friendly, the customers a healthy mix of visitors and residents. The chowder itself was scrumptious. Thick, flavorful and comes with a dollop of butter right on top! Old school to be sure. 😊

Very friendly staff, casual atmosphere and VERY popular. Shrimp sandwich was very good with lots of fresh shrimp. Do not miss the bread pudding...rich and enough to share.

I love chowder.... from Boston. Chowder is okay. Menu and food presentation/quality not too exciting ... mediocre. Lots of tourists due to location and convenience. Go to Mo's on the bay front . Great food and a must do there, not here.

It was a nice little restaurant, but i was personally unhappy with their beer selection, and I did not care for the chowder. it was a thinner chowder and wasn't very hearty.
