“Good Seafood”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The food is very good and the price makes it a good value. There is usually a wait to get a table. The restaurant is in need of a long overdue renovation. It appears to have had no updates in many years. Service is variable. Some servers are very god, others are not.

“Like it's sister restairant”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Like Branford's Chowder Pot, Hartford offers the same delicious meals at an affordable price. Hartford's venue is quite larger than Branford location with the same nautical motif. The only suggestion I would offer is that they should improve their signage. As you exit I-91 you see it's sign, but when you turn into the parking lot you are confused as to which building to enter.
After parking in the main lot in front of the restaurant we were still unsure we were in the right place.
That said, Chowder Pot is well worth the visit.

“Great food!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Service was pretty good, little slow. But well worth the wait it was a real chowder house. Prime Rib was amazing.

“WONDERFUL PARTY VENUE WITH GOOD FOOD AND GREAT STAFF”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We recently attended an anniversary party at the Chowder Pot and what a great surprise. Often banquet food is bland and mediocre but not here. The food was very good and the staff was so friendly and attentive. They made sure everyone was take care of. It was a wonderful evening.

“Liked the 4 course special”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

I was there dining solo on a Tuesday night. Ordered the special 4 course meal, with soup, a salad, bread, a steamed lobster, and cheesecake for $19.95. All was good with no surprises. I think they run this special (with several choices besides the lobster) on Monday, Tuesdays and Wednesday. Service was attentive.
