Best clam chowder and excellent italian dishes including seafood in angel hair and eggplant parmesan. Everything we ordered was excellent. We were in Eastport 5 days and ate here 4 of the evenings. Highly recommend.

Our niece had her wedding reception in the lower level of the restaurant. Charming location and the staff did a great job of decorating the room. The lobster and prime rib dinner was great. The wine flowed and we had a great time.

Fast, friendly, efficient service with really great Clam Chowder! Lobster rolls were large, they certainly didn't scrimp on the lobster meat (as opposed to places in Bar Harbor). We had lunch inside because it was a cool misty cloudy day.

We really enjoyed our lunch on a cool, sunny day here at Eastport Chowder House. We sat out on the balcony and saw a few whales while we were eating. The food was fresh and very well prepared. Service was excellent. Would definitely recommend!

We went here for dinner after a long drive to the nearby hotel where we were staying. The food was good, the service was friendly and okay. The views of the sea out of the windows were spectacular.
