Yes, what a chowder, and not just clams. The day I was there, they had 5 or 6 different chowders listed on the chalk board. Very trip to Seattle will include a stop at Pike Place Chowder

Tried both the seared scallop chowder and the seafood bisque. Both were amazing and worth the short wait. Don’t miss if you love chowder

We live in Seattle and always go here when we have guests in town. The food is fantastic. Get the chowder sampler and fresh crab. A word of advice, expect to wait a bit for a table, but it's so worth it.

The chowder was just ok. I expected more. Other menu items were just ok too. The oysters were greasy. This review is of the location in the mall.

Some of the chowders have bacon and some have a pork sausage. They also have chowders with none of the above, ask your server which ones are without pork and they'll direct you to one that fits your preference. Enjoy!
