As the name implies, the chowder was fantastic! The cod was moist and fresh and fries and onion rings were good too. The waitress said the chef hand batters the rings herself.

authentic chowder, but not as good as New England many great entrees, prices were reasonable. no one seems to have whole belly clams here, but clam cakes were available on the appetizer menu. good location, 7 minutes away and short wait.

Being from New England I am very picky about seafood and this restaurant did not disappoint. Great chowder just wish they had clam cakes to go with it.
