We stopped here for an afternoon light meal. We both had the clam chowder in a bread bowl. There is free water at the end of the line, so save yourself some money and don't buy the water bottles at the entry.

This is some of the best, lip smacking sourdough bread I have ever tasted. For us out-of-towners, they also have some great shaped breads to make it even more fun. We grabbed a Sea Turtle loaf and ate it while riding the top of the...More
