Queued for ages & got a crab roll - highly seasoned & disappointing. Saw people getting chowder in a bread bowl which looked ok. Not really sure why it's so highly rated.

I have an allergy to crab-crab only, fine with shrimp lobster and everything else. Do you have a chowder that definitely does not have crab?
