My friend took me to the Chowder House for my birthday. The waitress was rude, our salad was brown and the rolls were so hard you could break a tooth. I ordered a cup of coffee and it was horrible. When I asked the waitress...More

This is complete nonsense. First you must have dined at a different restaurant. We don't serve rolls! So how could they be old? Complete lie or fake review. We don't have any dirty men working in the dining room. There's only one male that works...More

Our Sunday lunch after church group had a delightful time here yesterday. After we presented the staff with an unexpectedly large (jumping at the last minute from 20 to 32!) birthday group, they rallied with speed and professionalism. The food was delicious, service was prompt...More

I liked that they had an Easter dinner menu. I picked the lamb chops that were very moist served with a stuffing on the side which was also very tasty. The Franklin beets were very good. The service was very good, nice friendly atmosphere.

A very nice dining experience for a large birthday group. Service was good. Food was excellent and good portions.
