Loved the chowder here. I got the crab chowder (which was slightly and pleasantly spicy) and my wife got a burger (big and juicy and delicious). Prices were reasonable as well. Highly recommend!

Best Chowder on the Wharf, bread bowl and great Fish N Chips The chowder is not overly thick with cornstarch and potatoes. But have alot of clams and crunch celery. The Fish N Chips are lightly coated and not greasy!!!

We stopped to get a bite to eat and decided to go into Chowders. So the food is not the best! We thought since it was on the pier it would be real sea food but it was more along the lines of artificial crab....More

We came here with three of our grandchildren and found the food delicious. One of the grandchildren had the clam chowder and proclaimed it as excellent. The fish and chips was really good and the seafood platter was also.
