This place is the one I have been waiting for. I love to support locally owned businesses and in doing so usually get the best or the worst. This was one of the best! We were a large group and the food tasted great and was served in a timely and efficient manner. Everyone was well pleased. It was a... More

This was the best chowder that we ate while on the Oregon coast. It was perfect. My husband ordered it in a bread bowl and I ordered it in a bowl and french fries. There was NO slab of butter sitting on top of my chowder. That was a plus! The service was friendly enough. It is kinda crowded but... More

During a girls weekend at the beach we were looking for a place to have lunch. I really wanted to have chowder and fish & chips. I talked my friends into driving down to Depoe Bay from Lincoln City and going to the Chowder Bowl. I did this because back in October of 2014 my mother and I had stopped... More

The Chowder Bowl is a long term fixture on the Depoe Bay walkfront...Since we live locally, we thought we'd stop in for lunch, hoping for a good, reasonably priced meal. Unfortunately, not so much. I had clam chowder that needed clams, my fiance ordered fish and chimps that were greasy and cold, and the service was extremely slow. Unfortunately, the... More

This is a little tough - bottom line: great food. Your stomach will appreciate that. However, your eyes will wish for better lighting. The new white light, energy efficient "bulbs" leave a lot to be desired, such as a warm feeling environment. Oftentimes coastal businesses such as restaurants, shops and hotels feel like they have not changed decor or paint... More

I took my wife and mother here for lunch on 2/7/16. The food was decent. After checking my bank statement, I see that they added $5 to the total. I had already left a $5 cash tip on the table. Very unethical. We will never return!!!

Pretty standard chowder; good but nothing special. My husband and I both got the bread bowl with chowder, very filling. We also shared a bowl of steamer clams, which were tasty. Wasn't aware that this place was a chain prior to going.

The Chowder Bowl in Depot Bay is a great discovery for anyone that enjoys a great cup or bowl of chowder as well as offering a great overall menu. I would eat seafood for most meals if it was available fresh to me. The Depot Bay area offers just that availability. However, I currently live in the California low desert.... More
