The food was not all that bad, hence, NOT one-star. But the experience was horrifying—easily among the worst customer relations situations I have ever encountered. I ordered the “all-you-can-eat” baked cod dinner, and was told by our server to let her know her when I...More

If you are looking for a wholesome meal Taylor's is the place! The Wednesday all you can eat Cod is amazing ! Make sure you check the website for a coupon for free cup of chowder

In my opinion Taylor's Chowder House has the best fish and chips in the Phoenix. Service was great. Portions were huge.

I stopped in to try the chowder. I also had the fish and chips. The fish was good and both are worth a return trip the next time I want fish and chips with chowder.

Food - Good seafood for the desert. Fried whole belly clams are wonderful but obviously not as fresh as New England. Clam chowder is good. Decent wine and beer selection. Service - Attentive and friendly staff. Drinks stayed full and food served in a timely...More

Love the whole belly clams and chowder. The coleslaw- not so much. Love the nautical theme and the server was very friendly and nice. I live across town but always try to make it to Taylors every few months.
