First time, but will not be my last. Coming from a 40 year old Mainer, this place is worth the trip from miles away. Affordable, friendly service, more than generous portions, clean and of course......A+ lobster stew and fried clams. It is a 50 minute...More

The seafood chowder was ok, but not good enough to make up for the surly help behind the counter. It's a very informal place with a few tables inside. The place was not particularly clean in the dining area or behind the counter. I definitely...More

My wife and I were looking for a local place for lunch. We fell upon Morrison's Chowder House. The food was excellent...ordered the lobster roll. Small place...very little seating capacity, but worth the wait! Can't wait to go again. Rated: A

We visited this Chowder House in October 2009 en route to Bar Harbor (part of our honeymoon) - it's not much to look at from the outside/nor inside for that matter but the Chowder House has great atmosphere with sprinklings of different nationalities in one...More

I ate here back in the early 2000's and remembered it being delicious. I'm not sure if the owner changed or just the food, in 2010 for $40 we got a tiny cup of seafood chowder, lobster chowder and a lobster roll all of which...More

My wife and I ate there today, (we've been there once previously) and wish we had gone elsewhere. This place is now called the Freeport Chowder House, so I don't know if it's still part of Morrison's, or whether there is a new owner. The...More
