We were seated right away. I had clam chowder and steamed clams. The steamed clams were good, but not the best I've had. The clam chowder was great and probably had the most clams I have in any chowder. The rest of the family said the fries were great. Staff was busy and not overly friendly. We were only checked...

I had the Shrimp Louie with garlic bread and my husband had the clam chowder. Both were very good meals. The service was great!

Come to enjoy the chowder and seafood dishes, but stay awhile and watch James be a stellar example of someone who understands customer service. I've visited the Chowder Bowl frequently for years now, and each time he is working I've never seen him have a bad day/spirit. He is quick to greet customers when they arrive, and is one of... More

No Beach view, but the shrimp and chips were amazing and the burgers don't disappoint. The fries are an especially delicious side dish - potatoes sliced in circles and fried to golden goodness.

Been here many times during coastal vacations and this has been one of our favorite places to eat. The chowder and cheese sticks were really good but the cod fish n chips had a weird flavor and later made my husband very sick. The chili on the chili cheese fries tasted exactly like canned Nalley's, it was gross. Truly disappointed.

We enjoyed the food, but this is not an accessible restaurant. There are steps down to both dining rooms and tables are set too close together to be able to manuever.

When your on the coast you want to eat some good fresh seafood and this place was just that. Would definitely go back again when were in the Newport area.

We had lunch there after the bad weather in October.. what a great local place for lunch.. if you are not a local, and after showing proof of our last name, don't expect warm and fuzzy service but lunch was wonderful.The day after the hurricane the waves crashing on the beach were fantastic and the ominous cloud coverage was beautiful....

We rate our chowder and we had the cannon ball and the chowder with shrimp. It was good but we like ours thick and creamy so would rate as a 7 out of 10. Service was good.
