Yes it is small and yes it is really busy BUT worth the wait in the rain to get a seat... We had Cowder believe it or not... it was was superb packed with Hake, Salmon, Haddock, Squid and veg. It was creamy and warming.

We stopped by for lunch and enjoyed what the restaurant had to offer. You get a local flavor, very friendly and the food was good. We enjoyed our time there talking with the locals and would recommend this establishment for sure.

We just read that Chowder had closed, and it's a good thing. Both of us got the seafood chowder and both of us got sick. Don't go unless it reopens with new owners and a new chef. Go get chowder at Ashe's.

Just a heads up that this restaurant in closed for good. We went there this week for lunch and there is a sign on the door that states the restaurant is permanently closed and the shop owner across the street confirmed that.

With 8 tables they don't have a lot of room, but the food sells itself! The wife and I had the seafood platter. It came with a bowl of seafood chowder that was fabulous! Then there was the fish and chips, very good. It finished...More

We had lunch here last friday and the chowder was one of the best I have even had. Great flavour, plenty of fresh fish and tasty brown bread. It certainly does justice to its name.

We are a small restaurant serving breakfast using locally made bacon, puddings and sausages along with local free range eggs. We also have pancakes with fresh fruit and maple flavour syrup. served 10-12, Our lunch menu 12-4 is about Dingle fresh fish and Irish meat. Our Chowder is recommended We do have a great Club sandwich menu including veggie ones. Please note that we are a small kitchen which means we cannot cater for gluten/nut allergies, also vegans should be aware of our limitations. Regarding credit/debit cards we don't accept them as the bank charges we are offered are too high.We would rather keep our prices as reasonable as possible.
