We stumbled across this place when searching for somewhere that serves french dip sandwiches, and we're so glad we did! It was fun filling out our own sandwich orders while being given so many choices. It was also nice to have 3 different types of chowder to choose from. The food and service were fantastic, ambiance is cool and even... More

Ordered 12 to go, for a couple days got one mixed up item but otherwise a good meal. Ask them to write the order on the sandwich on large number take outs.

If you're looking for somewhere quick for lunch or a light dinner, this is the place. Build your own sandwich had a good variety, clam and halibut chowder were creamy and yummy.

All the locals in Fairbanks know that the Chowder House has tested and true lunch and dinner food. I order the chef's salad: it comes in an herb tortilla shell bowl. The chef's salad is huge and can be shared by 2 people, it has a boiled egg and grilled chicken plus tons of other veggies. I like the halibut... More

The Chowder House is where the locals go for a quick bite. There is a reason for this. While the food is not inexpensive and the portions are not giant, the cost is reasonable and the meals are tasty. There is not a ton of room, but a cozy atmosphere is nice at times.

I had a bowl of smoked salmon chowder and my wife had their quiche. Both were delicious. Service was fast and friendly. We will eat here again.

I went for the chowder which was a bit disappointing--more potatoes and white sauce than fish or corn. But the chicken salad sandwich was tasty. The build your own sandwich option offers something for everyone.

My friend and I always meet here to enjoy soups and homemade bread. It is a little tiny place but the food is very good and the staff friendly. Always great to stop by if you like to make a small break between.

This is a nice lunch stop. The smoked salmon chowder is a must try. You can completely customize your sandwich, including various bread options. My favorite is the ciabatta bread.
