We had a "mission" to find the best seafood chowder on our recent trip to Nova Scotia and PEI. Several times people recommended Charlene's, including someone who had just had a chowder at another well-known extablishment. The gentleman said to him Charlene's was the best. We went out of our way to find it, got there too early (it hadn't finished cooking for the day) but waited to get the best chowder of our trip. Bowl-licking good! Loved the consistency on the thick side and the variety of seafood, no fillers.
