They have won so many awards -- on a national level. The chowder is wonderful: especially the Salmon Chowder. The seafood gumbo is also a great feast for the taste buds and slightly less salty than the salmon chowder. Enjoy!

Had a bowl of chicken corn chowder while exploring Pike Street Market, again. Serving is small; not particularly memorable; expensive for its size. Counter service is indifferent, at best. Have had better chowder locally (NY); certainly so in Maine. Don't see what the big deal...More

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!
