We stopped in for a cup of chowder for lunch . We tried the clam and shrimp chowder. Delicious, never had shrimp chowder before, and was pleasantly surprised. One (two) of better chowder that we had during the weekend.

It's just a little hole in the wall type place, but those are usually the best places for a meal. We had a bowl of chowder and a crabroll too and they were both excellent.

I don't understand why everyone raves about this clam chowder. We came here because of all the great reviews on tripadvisor. The flavor is very odd, it tastes like they use instant potatoes with lots and lots of water. (very starchy) We could not taste...More

The place is a hole in the wall, but many a times the hole in the walls have delicious food, and this one does. The clam chowder has a unique flavor- reminded me of scalloped potatoes with a pleasant twang, and it had BIG chunks...More

Thank you for the review. We are little and keep it simple to do what we do best. Make sure to let us know a couple days before you come to Long Beach so Capt. Bob can have your red chowder for you. Happy fall

Wonderful fish and chips! So flakey and the right amount of breading. Chowder was very good - nice and thick the way it should be. Great friendly service. Must try this little place.
