“Still the best clam chowder place!”
Review of Chowder Bowl

Chowder Bowl

Reviewed July 31, 2013

We stop here every year for a bowl of chowder and some food for our kids and it never ever disappoints! Great, buttery clam chowder with real clams for a good price. The fries are addictive, the servings are decent and the prices are reasonable. Great little dive in a fun town to visit, been going here for many, many years.

Kids love the chew chew train that circles the restaurant.

We ate here for our first morning on the Oregon Coast. It was actually lunch for us. They had a fabulous buffet. Everything was free. The salad bar was wonderful. Plenty of fresh veggies and fruit. They had pizza and many other sides....all buffet style and good considering it IS IN FACT a buffet. They even had dessert on the buffet. It's a beautiful view of the ocean from any table in the restaurant. I didn't expect this fabulous view when we parked and decided to eat at this buffet for our first lunch in Oregon!

We stopped in on a drizzly weekday afternoon based on a recommendation from the taffy shop down the street. There is nothing fancy about the decor, except there is a model train running around the top of the wall. Two of us had chowder bread bowls. The bread was described as sourdough, but was not that sour. We are used to how they make it in San Francisco, and had sourdough from another restaurant that was the same. The chowder was very good, both of us enjoyed it. The service was good, we never waited long for anything, even as the whole place filled up after us. They sell shirts with their logo, which is like the O.C. Choppers, except it has their restaurant name on it.

Our second visit in 2 years to the coast and to this site. The staff was friendly and fun, prices good, food fine. They rave about the chowder. We felt it was heavy on the cream and potatoes, and light on the clams.

Overpriced for what you get. $12.95 for crab melt. Scant crab. Bread was good. Small serving tasteless colorless slaw. Chowder ok. Gold standard is Splash Cafe's clam chowder in Pismo Beach CA. Outdated decor. Staff was efficient and attentive. Not impressed.
