This is place have awesome food portions and pricing. I went here to celebrate my grandfather 84th bday and the seating for big parties was awesome! We have our own private backroom and services. Will come again.

A very busy Saturday night, and the staff worked hard to see everyone got a table in good order. Was worth the wait. Lots of menu choices, fresh seafood, generous portions and attentive servers. Would recommend.

One of the things that impresses me about Chowder Pot IV is that this very good restaurant is equally good at banquets and group dining. They have state-of-the-art banquet facilities that can be used for a variety of events, and the quality of the food...More

They have packages & a nice room in the back for functions. Food was good and reasonably priced. My daughter-in-law's bridal shower was there. There were 35 of us. I am sure they could accommodate 40!
