We go back year after year. We love the half red, half white. Just the right spice, not overly creamy, plenty of vegetables and most important clams!

Stopped in to pick up a container of New England Clam Chowder - best soup ever. Took a quart back to the rental house and everyone raved over it. Wish I had got a second to freeze and bring home!

While there are many spots to get great chowder on LBI, this is one of the best. Always has a selection of soups to pick from, and provides a bread bowl option.
