It is just a small outlet store, not a restaurant, but with an excellent assortment of chowders, soups and sauces, including multiple seafood chowders. To me, they tasted freshly prepared and home made.

Bought 2 soups & 1 frozen item. Just tried the Broccoli Cheddar soup which was good. I've already recommended The Chowder Factory.

PATRICIA, October 11, 2019

We got New England clam chowder today and their crackers to go with it. It was so good and so reasonably priced! We will be back for sure! I can’t believe I had never heard of them and gone before- we were really missing out!

It had so many options to choose for outside of chowder. I decided on the Italian Wedding soup, which was delicious. I also bought vodka sauce, that I look forward to trying. I can’t wait to try more things from the Chowder Factory!

Customer service at the Chowder Factory was excellent. All of my questions were answered and the staff processed my Nift card even though they were unable to scan it.

Diane, September 11, 2019

I honestly don't know why I don't patronize The Chowder Factory more frequently! Their incredible variety of fresh soups, meals to go, gourmet pantry products, and much more is astounding! Add to that their wonderful, warm customer service and you have the makings of a perfect place to pick up a great lunch or dinner. We'll most definitely be back, and more regularly!

Suzzanne, September 9, 2019

Crystal, August 6, 2019

I bought clam chowder, Maryland crab and Italian wedding. Only tried the clam chowder so far, very tasty. I bought a quart which is enough for 2 large bowls or 3 cups. Looking forward to try the other flavors. Will definitely go back and try other things there like crab cakes and oysters Rockefeller.

Sukie, July 20, 2019

Chowder house counter person was very helpful. First time there and she explained all the products to me. Made a suggestion on how to defrost and cook the lobster pie. Highly recommend the chowder factory and Nift gifts

Ralph, July 17, 2019

Such a variety of chowders available plus other food items in bulk such as lasagna and quiche. An unexpected delight! The shrimp and corn chowder I purchased was scrumptious! Well worth the money.

Linda, July 6, 2019

If it wasn't for Nift, I would have never known Chowder Factory existed. I went there yesterday and got a quart of Clam Chowder. It was absolutely delicious. As I was perusing the various types of soups and chowders, the manager, Cindy, came over and asked me if I needed assistance. She was very professional and helpful. She advised me of upcoming sales and advised me to sign up to receive notifications about special offers. Would highly recommend.

James, July 3, 2019

Really kind and helpful person working who wanted to make sure I was happy with everything I was getting, taking the time to talk with me about what I was buying and gave me cooking tips as well. Huge selection, will definitely go back!

Heather, June 11, 2019

Cashier was very helpful

Daniel, June 3, 2019

Great place to get a chowder :)

Minori, May 7, 2019

We greatly enjoyed your clam chowder. We also had your marinara sauce and radiator pasta. Your marinara sauce is fabulous too!!! We'll be back to buy more chowder soon! Chowder Factory is a total 5 (or more!).

Evelyn, May 7, 2019

Lots of soups!

Jessica, April 27, 2019

Such a huge selection. Good prices and the food is great.

MARY JO, April 12, 2019

The Chowder Factory has excellent service & selection. Would highly recommend!

Elizabeth, April 4, 2019

Would definitely rank this as a "5" (for some reason wasn't allowed to "click" on the below numbers). This place has a small place for the public --- which allows one to purchase cooked meals, including soup. I had the Mac and Cheese/Lobster. Was tasty --- I'm not used to bread crumbs on top --- it took some getting use to --- but was tasty. Also, the lady was quite nice and friendly.

Paula, March 25, 2019

Thank you for the gift of Boston Chowder! It's delicious!

Susan, February 8, 2019

Great variety of prepared food. Chowders are delicious! Would highly recommend.

Wide assortment of seafood items..chowder...pies lobster mac and cheese !! Awesome!!

Linda, December 28, 2018

Very pleasant experience and wonderful food

Tracy, December 8, 2018

Cindy was great to help me in choosing which soups to get! I would absolutely come back.

Diana, December 3, 2018

I would have never found the Chowder Factory on my own. Getting a nift gift was the only reason I ventured down that street, and it was a great find! I would definitely consider returning for some comfort food, there.

Sarah, November 17, 2018

Very friendly staff, delicious soup!

Tom, November 16, 2018

Love their soups....better than homemade!

Donna, November 15, 2018

The soups that I’ve tried are great thus, but there was one thing that left me puzzled. The woman who was managing charged me $46.95 for four 32 oz. soups. I used my Nift discount and the total went down to $36.95. The problem is the soups were $8.50 each on the container and on the receipt, so where does the $46.95 come from? Did I just get hustled out of my discount? I love soup and told her I’d be back for sure, but if this is the way they conduct business, I’m not so sure.

Mark, November 13, 2018

A great discovery less than a mile from home with delicious reheatable food

Dave, November 3, 2018

Always have had great soups fromChowder Factory, perfect time of year for soup too. Love this,thanks. Sandy

Sandra, October 21, 2018

I was really pleased with the wide selection of items available at the Chowder Factory outlet. I had a hard time choosing between the various soups, pies, and sweets. I ended up grabbing a pint of Autumn Bounty soup and some chicken pot pies for dinner - all of which were delicious. The price was great as well!
