Did their Clam Chowder. Clams, Bacon, potatoes, cream bursting with flavour. Great Dungeness crab sandwich, Salmon fish and chips. We ordered and shared a bunch of stuff. A treat once a while not for everyday though.

The chowder was every bit as good as the reviews suggest... howeva... pro tip... show up at 4:30 - 5:00. No reason to wait in a line that stretches around the block. The four chowder sampler was a great option.

We had heard so much hype about this place. We tried it on the final day of a family trip and everything we ordered was delicious. The clam chowder is awesome. Sandwiches were great. You will not be disappointed.

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!
