“A very nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

We've seen the Chowder House in Gold Beach and have eaten there for breakfast many years ago but never for dinner. We went there for dinner and my wife ordered fish and chips with sweet potato fries and I had the fish tacos. My wife ordered the 3 piece selection and I thought she would never eat it all. Well, she said it was the best fish basket she ever had as far the the fish was concerned. Very lightly battered and nice flaky fish. She wasn't terribly fond of the coleslaw stating it was too sweet for her. The sweet potato fries were also good. My fish tacos were also very good. The best I've had. No deep fried fish filet stuck in a tortilla shell here. The fish was in nice flakes, not deep fried and very moist. Must have been baked. There was no side dish with the tacos. We will definitely recommend the Chowder House to friends. The restaurant is not fancy and serves mostly fish for dinners prepared in various fashions. You order at a counter and pick up your own place settings.

“Breakfast was OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

Stayed next door to Chowder House and our motel provided a voucher for breakfast. The food was OK...I had french toast and hubby had pancakes. We ordered a "side of bacon" to share which was only 2 slices so we ended up ordering another "side". The second morning we said "forget the voucher" and had breakfast elsewhere. This place was average at best.

“Great food, informal atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

We visited here because we had a Groupon coupon. They had EXCELLENT shrimp tacos. Spicy and flavorful. Also good salads. I forgot to order fries for my spouse and when they heard me apologizing to her, they brought out a side of fries for free. Really good fries as well.
