Although the Service and setting are nice the food is OK but missing that extra something. The flavor is just not anything to really mention. I'm not sure that I would go back.

The waitress was very attentive at this baby shower we were at. Most people liked their food. I thought that my haddock was too dry but it wasn't awful. The Ziti Alfredo with broccoli was excellent and had plenty of tasty chicken also. There were two other functions going on at the same time, so this place must have a... More

Prior to this visit, I had only ever been here for large group functions. I knew the food was good, but didn't know how large the portions were or that the place itself was the favorite spot for many of the area's more mature dinner goers. The night started with what appeared to be Pepperidge Farm crackers and a cheese... More

My mom and I went here for lunch on Satuday. Something new for us. We got a fishermans platter and a ceasar salad to share. We do this a lot as were out and about and don't want to deal with leftovers. I make sure I leave a really good tip though. The fish was very very fresh. the salad... More

Travelling on business, and found this gem of a restaurant by accident. We ordered the most unbelievable pizza we've ever had. It was the Mediterranean Chicken, and came over-loaded with chicken, artichoke hearts, olives, baby spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, fete cheese, mozzarella cheese and pesto. It was unbelievably good, with a thin, crisp dough. So much food, we... More

Passing by on highway and found this place on TA. Dinner started with complimentary cheese spread and really good warm bread. I had two huge charbroiled pork chops ,($16.95) that were delicious. Wife had stuffed scrod ($14.95) that was very big and fresh if a tad bland. Sides of baked potato, grilled asparagus and butternut purée were excellent. Server was... More

Dear Sirs, What a most pleasant experience to have found your establishment!! Easily reachable from downtown Boston and to top it, the food was delicious with a wide variety of choices and the prices most reasonable. I would happily encourage a journey to the Chowder House as a most desirable destination. As Julia Child would have said had she had... More

We were at the Chowder House restaurant part of the complex. There are few places that offer white table cloths. This is one of the remaining few. Service was excellent. Our waitress was on the ball and attentive but not overbearing. Food was good. My husband had the lobster newburg and found the lobster tough and chewy. Don't know what... More

We decided to try the 2 for $34 meal with a bottle of wine. Hubby ordered some sort of chicken with spinach and tortellini, he ate it all. I on the other hand, ordered a Limon chicken with mashed potatoes. I *think* the mashed potatoes had bacon in them. Not being sure I stopped eating them. The "Limon"chicken came with... More
