Had the 4 chowder sampler and fried oysters. Everything was good; nothing really special but for mall food it was good. If in the mall again and hungry then I would return.

Best choker and most types of chowder for tasting ever......the white clam chowder was loaded with clams. Sourdough and crackers were perfect.

Pike Place Chowder is a must try, if it's your first time at Pike Place and Seattle. The lines are long during peak hours but you can avoid it if you go off peak.

No wonder there are long lines every day, the Chowder is damn near the "Big-O". It isn't easy to get a seat so get there early!

Stopped for lunch here after visiting Pike Place Market. VERY long line, but it went fairly quickly - probably 30 minute wait. Our family had the New England Chowder and it was excellent!! Not a whole lot of seating in the area, but we grabbed a picnic table outside.

Try four of the amazing chowders by getting the flight. The seafood chowder was the favorite of our family, but all were amazing. They even offer a gluten and dairy free option!

Looking back on it now i wish I would've got the sampler chowder option. Instead I tried the seafood bisque. It did not disappoint. Just a heads up the Weight can be long at times and you feel like you're rushed at your seats if you can find one.

Thank leatherhat14
