We visit Long Beach once a year, and had the good fortune of trying Captain Bob's Chowder a year ago. The husband and I shared a chowder and a crab roll, and then immediately ordered another because you just shouldn't be sharing Crab Rolls when...More

We love Captain Bob's and looked forward for two years to going back for chowder. This is a charming hole in the wall with just 4 booths, a very bare bones operation, but the best white clam chowder and an even more wonderful red seafood...More

Thank you for the review. We are little and keep it simple to do what we do best. Make sure to let us know a couple days before you come to Long Beach so Capt. Bob can have your red chowder for you. Happy fall

Wonderful fish and chips! So flakey and the right amount of breading. Chowder was very good - nice and thick the way it should be. Great friendly service. Must try this little place.

We were sent here to try the best Clam chowder in town. Sorry, Captain Bob, but we thought it was too thick and mostly potatoes for our liking. It lacked the big chunks of clams that we were hoping for. Next time we'll have to...More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We do make a classic New England Chowder with several pounds of clams per pot. We also make several different chowder, they may be more to your liking. Please do stop in and try...More

This is a small restaurant run by a husband and wife who have the best clam chowder on the peninsula. The crab rolls are excellent!

When captain bob is out of chowder , he is OUT OF CHOWDER and NO SOUP FOR YOU TODAY! He usually sells out fairly quickly. There are few places we like for clam chowder but The Captain is on the good list.

Thank you for keeping us on the list. Sometimes we are off on how busy it is going to be. All chowders are made fresh daily so you may see us peeling potatoes between customers.
