They have a bunch of different flavors of chowder, all of them are delicious. Plus if you can't decide on just one, they offer a sampler where you can pick 4 different small cups of chowder. My favorite is the Smoked Salmon Chowder.

Seafood bisque and New England chowders were great but not quite as good as I was expecting. I have had chowders as good in others places

Amazing soups and worth any wait that you may encounter. Bread bowl is a must. Sampled a couple but the clam chowder is worth the hype!

Some of the chowders have bacon and some have a pork sausage. They also have chowders with none of the above, ask your server which ones are without pork and they'll direct you to one that fits your preference. Enjoy!
