We were excited about our visit to Chowda House. The meals we ordered weren't memorable. The New England clam chowder was watery and the dinner salad basic.

Lobster rolls and fish and chips are great. I enjoy going here in the summer with my family because of the outside dining area behind the restaurant.

Direct from grandmas's Rhode Island recipe, this is wonderful stuff to warm the soul. Okay, I have sort of gotten used to the Manhattan style "red" chowder having lived in the NY area for many years. But the only "real" choder is New England style...More

Could have been a contender, but we started with steamers. We got 10, count 'em, 10 steams for $14... c'mon. No bread served. Had to ask for it. Bread was stale. My wife was craving softshell crab, and they had it. They had the nerve...More
