  • "When I lived in this area, this used to be a bar and grill. Transformed into a primarily seafood restaurant is a big step up. The menu offers a good choice of seafood dishes, sandwiches, and non-seafood like steak and chicken. We had lunch here, my wife steamed clams (very fresh) and a large salad; myself an Angus beef sandwich, au jus. Fresh, simple, good food. Good selection of beers on tap and bottled. Quite atmosphere. We'll be going back another time for dinner. "
    "Great find for fresh seafood"
    "The staff was friendly and attentive. The meals (Pirate Platter- recommended!) were fresh and plentiful. The fish, shrimp and scallops were not overpowered by a thick batter. "
    "Since we didn't make it to the coast this year we thought we missed our chance for a good seafood dinner, but we found it near Utica! "
    "Small but good food"
    "Outstanding Chef, Staff, atmosphere AND, the food was superb! Chef John is incredible! The dinning experience was absolutely Fabulous! What a find! The New England Clam Chowder was superb! The Calamari delicious! And, I'm NOT a big ...More"
    What other place? I have gone to the Chowder House since I was a kid and they were on Oneida Street. I love the food & the people here. Always have a wonderful time; they understand what running a hospitality business is all about. One of my favorite places ever; we take family from out of town here when they visit. Try the oysters (how do they get oysters so good in CNY? Magic?) I love Chowder House
  • "One of our very favorites. Great food, excellent.and friendly service."
    "We love this place. Don't ask Jim to cook the huge Goramis swimming in the tank. Yes, the chowder is great."
    "Great fish i had fried beer batter wife had baked fish both very good. "
    "Really good food. Wait staff was great. Small place so had to wait for a bit for table. Took about 5 minutes for some to acknowledge that we were there other then to say excuse me. Would definitely go back again. "
    "We eat here regularly. The food is always fresh and they prepare it so many ways! Gr8 place and gr8 food!"
    "Great Place to eat! Clams are steamed in garlic and are to die for!!!"
    First time visit, other than forty years ago as Targets Brass Rail ;) ;) Great food along with friendly, professional and attentive service from owner Jim and server Melaina...most definitely will be returning soon!
    We made our first visit on a Friday night. Upon arrival, our reserved table was ready, complete with booster seats for the kids. The staff was friendly and attentive, even providing "a French fry as tall as a giraffe" as ordered by our daughter. The food was delicious, and we look forward to our next visit.
    I have been looking for a seafood restaurant for some time and I just came across this one on the internet. The food and service was fantastic. My husband does not like seafood that much, but loved the fact that they have vegetarian options as well. This has been the first time my husband and I could get what we both liked. Love the décor also. We will be back again for sure.
    My husband and I tried your restaurant tonight for the first time, and we both can not wait to come back! EVERYTHING was wonderful! The tomato mozzarella salad, corn chowder, new England calm chowder, the steak, seafood - everything! Our waitress was attentive and pleasant. Are only complaint was we didn't try it sooner ☺ Thank you for a great meal!
