We were a group of 20. Orders taken promptly. The Brig salad was the absolute best. If I would have had room, I would have eaten 2!!! It was just so noisy making it difficult to talk to one another. It was a Friday night and there wasn't an empty seat in the place.

The White Chicken Chili/Chowder was delicious as was the half BLT that my friend enjoyed. I had chips and homemade salsa, and the house salad... delicious. Best salsa I have had on quite... More

This is a fun local spot for sandwiches, appetizers, and salads. They have a nice, wide menu. They have great servers who take good care of you. The atmosphere is quirky and fun. Great place to take out-of-towners for a little local flavor.

The Cod Lunch with coleslaw and fries was good as was the 1/2 Mermaid with fries. Great stop for lunch after church. Breakfast at Chowders is also very good... More

Nice little divey restaurant serving up great sandwiches for a great price. For $5-6 you get a half sandwich and a plate of fries. If that's not enough (it is), you can go to a whole sandwich or add a cup of soup. But back to the sandwiches...they were melt in your mouth good and piled high with meat. Service... More

Descent simple breakfast but service can vary. Sometimes they are good and sometimes non-existent. Been there for dinner too and it's ok.. Descent similar to an average chain bar and grill.
