Everyone is pleasant, but most times I've had to wait too long to order and for the food to come to the table. Prices are a little higher in comparison but the food is good. For these reasons I don't frequent this restaurant. Fine for those who don't mind waiting for a higher priced meal.

I don't like to give uncomplimentary reviews but this will be an exception! When you go to a business to spend your hard earned $ n then they dictate to you their terms I'm not a fan. They do not allow people to order water n put sugar n it, if they see you do it they CHARGE you for... More

Found this place on trip advisor and decided to stop in for dinner. It took a little while for a waitress to take our order because I feel they are understaffed. The waitress was very good and attentive. Chowder was good too. We were disappointed in the cost/size of the lobster roll as well as the breading on the fish... More

We had lunch at the Chowder House today and we're thrilled. My wif, son and I each had Boston clam chowder and then had fisherman's platters. The seafood was fresh (never frozen). The batter was great (not greasy). Our server Anthony was very helpful. We'll definitely go back often. Just like home.

We ate dinner here about an hour and half before closing. They were very busy but seating was done shortly after arrival. We ordered Coconut Shrimp appetizer and then ordered our drinks. Drinks came promptly, and the appetizer. Be aware that it consists of 6 shrimp, if more than one person sharing, you may want to order an additional order.... More

I had the shrimp linguine and loved it. Would definitely get it the next time I go. Fish was had by others and they were happy with their meal. A little pricey but good food. Have to get there early and will probably still have to wait. Popular place means good food.
