We went 3 times on our 4 day visit to the coast. It was so good. I had clam chowder each time with a slice of their toast and my 6 year old granddaughter had the hot dog and chips and chicken and chips. We...loved the chips as they were not french fries but slices of potato that were fried. They were so good and a cool take on fries. We also had a side salad and it was fresh and delicious too. I had tried another restaurant for their chowder and it was not as good as the Chowder Bowl. We sat outside each time and had a relaxing experience. The servers were all very kind and attentive and the place was very clean. I liked that dogs could accompany their owners on the back deck and they even got a bowl of water served to them. The prices were very reasonable and my only complaint is that there is not a Chowder Bowl in Spokane, WA. I will be back next time I visit!More

We have been to all 50 states and over 50 countries. We have eaten in restaurants all over the world from 5 star Michelin places in Paris to street food in Lima. Yet, one of our all time favorite places is the humble Chowder Bowl...in Nye Beach. It is a small hole in the wall kind of place, but in our numerous visits going back 20 years, the food has always been good and the service always friendly. Our last visit was more of the same. There was a line so we had to wait, but they got us in quickly. I don’t care what anyone says about the chowder, but it was great and always has been. And they didn’t skimp on the clams. I usually get the fish (cod) and chips but decided to be adventurous and got the fish tacos instead. There were only 2 tacos but they were so big and had so much fish that I took one home. If you are in the Newport area and looking for good fish, this is the place for you!More

We ordered some clam chowder base and fish & chips. I had a terrible time understanding the order taker because of her heavy accent. The clam chowder was starchy rather than creamy and tasted glutinous. The chips with the fish & chips were not English...chips (French fries), but slices of small potatoes deep fried. Not much potato taste to them and very disappointing. The fish was just okay. Overall not a good experience. We enjoyed the place two years ago. Maybe it has changed management.More

Generous 3 piece fish and chips, with bread was my husbands choice, with an side of the chowder. My shrimp salad was huge, very generous portion of the shrimp, with the chower included in the price of the salad entree. We were not overy impressed...with the chower, it's so-so. Service was good.More

Friendly atmosphere, food was good. Little outing before we left the beach, we noticed this little restaurant amongst the little shopping area. Popped in ordered and was very satisfied.

Ran away for the weekend to Newport and had to visit the best Chowder place in town. Normally we get to enjoy the waiters and team but this time was just take out due to COVID, the Chowder was amazing as always and could never...go wrong with their sourdough bowls.More

This was our first time eating at the Chowder Bowl! We had fish and chips, clam chowder, popcorn shrimp, potato jalapeno puffs and lemonade cake! Everything was DELICOUS and the sweet young lady who works there was adorable, funny and sweet!

This is my favorite place for chowder. It is creamy but not gloppy, and it is full of clams. It is also one of the few places I have found that doesn’t put bacon in the chowder. With a pat of butter melting on top...it is comfort food at its best. They also have outdoor seating although it would be better if they had heaters. It is also very popular so be prepared to wait. It’s so worth it.More
