Go here for lunch. Have some chowder. It's one of their specialties and their version does not disappoint. The pat of butter melting in the bowl of chowder is a nice touch. ---> LEAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT and ORDER THE BREAD PUDDING!! <--- It's seriously good. Served warm in a rich buttery bourbon sauce. I mean, it's really and truly... More

We ate here a few times. The food was pretty good but the clam chowder wasn't as good as other restaurants in Newport, The fish and chips, and seafood platter were good. The salmon was overcooked and dry when we had it.

I ordered the Fish and Chips after waiting about 6 minutes for somebody to take my order. The Fish and Chips were bland tasting and the fish was not light and flaky. The batter was crunchy. The potatoes were sliced and lightly cooked. The tarter sauce gave the fish some taste and the potatoes were average. A piece of toast... More

The service we got was very poor. The waitress had no personality and did not even come to ask how our food was. Probably a good thing because we would have sent it back. We ordered the seafood platter and it all tasted like something in the freezer section of a no name grocery store. So grose! Don't waste your... More

I guess I expected outstanding fish while on the Oregon Coast as I live in the desert. The fish & chips were average. My friend ordered the clam chowder with a Caesar salad and said it was pretty good. We did love their logo and even bought a tee shirt with the logo on the back!

The Chowder Bowl in the heart of historic Nye Beach is a delicious stop , whether for a meal or snacks and a sip. Service is fast and friendly... even when they're busy. We've had the delish fish & chips before, this time the Seawich (cod) & fixin's, excellent fish tacos and best chowder ever... good wine and beer choices... More

We sampled several different restaurants for clam chowder and found this to be one of the better ones! Very modern and busy little restaurant and worth the wait! We didn't have a huge appetite but the bread bowl looked amazing to try. Most definitely would return if we come back to the area!
