This used to be one of our favorites in Nye Beach, not anymore. We were very disappointed by the food. I think it's a matter of the restaurant being so busy that the management has taken their eye off the ball. The calamari and chips were not good. The calamari used to be delicious and that's why I ordered it... More

Our friends had mentioned this facility so we gave it a try. It was very busy. The clam chowder was good, truly above average and so we recommend it while you are in Newport. Should you ever be in Seaside, Oregon don't miss the clam chowder served at Doogers.

We arrived late on a foggy Sunday to our rental overlooking the coast. Tired and hungry, we walked through the mist to Nye Beach and wandered into the Chowder Bowl for dinner. It was comfortable and warm with excellent clam chowder and garlic bread for this hungry couple. After a short walk home we settled in and had a long... More

Family owned specializing in fish and chips and chowder. I had oysters and chips (which are actually chips that are processed like fries). The oysters were quite large and with six to an order made a very good meal. My husband was a bit disappointed in the chowder which he thought was a little bland.

Stopped here after exploring surrounding Nye Beach area. I had bowl of chowder and wife had chowder in the bread bowl. Very good chowder. Just had water with meal so not very expensive.

This is a great place for lunch! Not fast food but service is very quick. The food is wonderful! I had a bowl of Slumgulion which was more than enough, very rich, served with butter melting, & a lot of bay shrimp on top. Clams are chopped fine enough they are not "chewy" but lots of them. Wonderfully seasoned. My... More

Great service and fantasitic food with a nice atmosphere, all that with very good prices. I had the Oyster Po'Boy and my Son had the Fish Tacos, both dishes came to the table hot and tasted wonderful. The people there are very friendly and make you feel welcome.

The place looks very attractive outside but inside looks more like a factory canteen. The service was correct and friendly. The food is ok but nothing exceptional. We had a dinner but there is nothing more to say about it.

I was very impressed with the service. It was quick and they brought refills of coffee. The food was good. The Chowder was great. It was fairly quiet even though there were a lot of people in the restaurant. When I go to Nye beach again, I will be sure to eat there.
