I got the regular clam chowder and so did hubby but then I asked for a sample of the smoked salmon chowder because I was told to try it and I didn't have the nerve. The smoked chowder is so good and the regular chowder was good but not the best I have had. Take a chance....take the smoked!

If I could rate this place on only the New England clam chowder we ate, then it would be a 5-star. All the soups were great to eat, especially on a cold day. But, we did try a few items on the menu that wasn't that great, so we give the place a 4-star for the overall experience. Here's what... More

Has become a go to for a quick bowl every time in Seattle. Got there early on a Wednesday, and still a big line up at 11 am, at opening. Be prepared for a wait. And get the seafood bisque. All the chowders are good, but this is great. Don't miss tasting it!

Hard to find good quality east coast like chowder on the left coast. This is the place to have it in Seattle. Great for cold rainy days that we have so many of. Great for locals to pop in as well as tourists.

One of the best clam chowders that I have ever had. My husband and I both got a different chowder and split a crab roll. Worth waiting in line for.

There will be line. Eat there it anyway. The chowder is simply the best. My wife had the clam chowder, I had the mussel chowder. We both also had sandwiches, she had the lobster roll and I chose the Dungeness roll. The sandwiches were good, but the showstopper was the chowder. Loaded with goodies, plenty of shellfish, perfectly and simply... More

We don't get much chowder here in Colorado so when the opportunity arises to get some great chowder, I have to go! We were in Seattle for a few days and stopped by for lunch. So many chowder choices! I went with the classic chowder in a bread bowl. Delicious and the line was not very long and moved quickly.

I had to stand in the queue about a half hour before getting to order. The service was fast then, the eating space crowded, but I came for to food, nothing else, and what I got was worth it. I'd never eaten smoked salmon chowder before, and I don't expect anything to equal it in the future.

Ladies and Gentlemen, dont go home without taking a bite out of this chowder. New England Chowder is so delicious. I never had tasted such a fresh soup. It was worth the long wait, and decent price. People are so nice and patient around here. Feel like I am on a different planet. Try it , you will like.++++
