    I had the signature clam chowder in the sourdough bread bowl and sampled the fish and chips. Both delicious.

    A great place to get authentic clam chowder in a bread bowl in the middle of a tourist trap. A nice retreat from the crowds.

    Don't get the chowder if you don't eat pork or are vegetarian; it's already cooked into it. Go across the way to Boudin's

    Clam chowder is too salty. Overall fine for the price - shrimp Louie and clam strips fine.
