I don't like clam chowder it makes me nausea so I don't eat it but I was on a tasting tour and they gave us clam chowder to sample so I didn't want to be rude so I thought I would take one bite to be polite and be done with it,but that didn't happen. I actually liked it ,the clam chowder was great.I ate the entire sample and was ready for more,WHAAT!!.

Had a 4 sampler chowder. Each one more delicious than the next. Clam chowder, Market chowder, Scallop chowder and Bisque! Half a Dungeness Crab roll was more than enough to satisfy this seafood lover!

We stopped here, stood in line, couldn't have one of our three people sit at a table while the other two picked up the food as they don't allow you to sit down until you have food and there are very few tables. So, stand in the alley and eat your chowder. The chowder was good but no better than anywhere else, and expensive. Definitely not worth standing in line for. $23 for a tiny lobster roll, who are you kidding.

Its not my idea of the best chowder you can get, but it is a very nice cup of chowder if you enjoy seafood.

It was a long wait to get inside to place our order, but it was worth it. We split a seafood chowder, and it was so good! It isn’t the kind of food we normally eat, because it is extremely rich, but it was incredibly enjoyable.
