I went in solo and was lucky to be seated right away. It was dinner time, on a Saturday, so it was busy. It was nice to be seated towards the back of the restaurant so I didn't feel awkward. I decided on the Chowder Companies version of surf and turf. It was really good. The steak was small but... More

Read great reviews so we decided to try it out. First thing they were out of the sandwich of the day and it was only 1pm. We ordered cocktails, clam chowder, shrimp cocktail and vegetables. Shrimp cocktail came out with 4 small shrimp on a plate, one bite and it was still frozen. The clam in the chowder were rubbery.... More

Chowder v good with plenty of fish Swordfish acceptable The food was as expected but USD100 was far too much inc tip. We had better value in Boston. I would rather pay more for a step up in quality. Experienced international travellers and regular visitors to US and Europe. Wifi is available but told not !

We arrived to the area on a cold day and wanted a hot cup of soup. This is the place. Excellent clam chowder soup and excellent lobster role. We even loved the chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert... good experience

Got off a tour bus and wanted to grab a bite. First place we came to and WOW were we happy! Warmly greeted, shown to a nice, warm (chilly day) table--turns out it's burger-mania. Ordered a cheeseburger and fries for $4--one of the best burgers I've ever had. My husband ordered the clam chowder and I agree it's also one... More

Nice ambiance, candles and fireplace (simulated but pretty). Food was absolutely deliciou, and the service was great. Oysters on the half shell were extremely fresh, chilled and delicious, served with both mignonette as well as cocktail sauces. The chowder was excellent and deserving of their awards. It was a thinner broth but loaded with clams and vegetables. Excellent taste. The... More
