This Chowder Bar is a hidden Gem. It's a bar with a great view of the lake and mountain while you enjoy a great bowl of Clam Chowder.

It's a hole in the wall but really a treat. They change some of the menu daily so you never know what you'll find. We sampled three chowders and two rolls, all were spot on. I can't wait to go back.

Out of all the food spots i visited while in seattle this has to be my favorite by far. The seafood biscuit in a bread bowl? Wow amazing.... good quick service and cheap. Apparently they have a reputation for some of the best chowder around and i can surely see why.

Several chowder choices, loved the seafood bisque with sourdough bread included. Can sit on patio or inside.

This place is highly rated and recommended by many - but my family and I thought the chowder was just ok. I don't recommend the sandwiches at all- they were expensive, very small, and not good at all- I had the shrimp w crab. It's decent but not the hype I expected.

Chowder was "so so", had better elsewhere but just the eye rolling attitude of the staff when choosing your food. The young person serving was clearly unimpressed when I asked her to repeat something.

I ordered their special for the day (after waiting 45 minutes in line) and really enjoyed the meal. It comes with sourdough bread and there are a few tables to sit at in the restaurant. This wasn't the best chowder I've ever had (that honor goes to Ireland or San Francisco) but it was still very good. Loved the creaminess... More

Get the sampler! Try four chowders. The New England is really good, but the Market chowder if they have Crab and Lobster is Really good! Surprisingly one of the best was the smoked salmon. I am not a salmon fan at all, but this was very good!

We waited around 20 minutes in line to order and it was fairly easy to find a table after getting our food. They have a great policy where people can't save tables until they actually have their food in hand so that takes off some of the stress in table hunting. However, I do feel that this place is a...
