A regular stop while on the island. Best chowder on the island. The lobster bisque is also excellent. Never miss taking home a quart (or two).

Country Kettle's New England chowder in a bread bowl is a major star of my family's culinary dreams. We cannot leave the island without at least a quart of this deliciousness to enjoy at home. Consistently good and tasty!
