Best chowder I've ever eaten. We are from the east coast, on the Atlantic Ocean. I've had good chowder but nothing as good as this.

We had a 4-sampler feast and a medium size Seared Scallop Chowder, which were great, but was too much Chowder for me and my wife.

We lined up for lobster and sweet corn chowder today and it was simply delicious! The line moved quickly and the food was well worth the wait.

Heard Pike Place Chowder is the best Chowder ever. I agree it was great. If you are staying in downtown hotels a trip to 600 Pine St will get you the same Pike Place Chowder without the lines.

Some of the chowders have bacon and some have a pork sausage. They also have chowders with none of the above, ask your server which ones are without pork and they'll direct you to one that fits your preference. Enjoy!
