Named BEST SOUP on LONG ISLAND by viewers of NEWS 12 LONG ISLAND.(Dec. 2006)
Situated just a stone's throw from the Great South Bay, the Chowder Bar was built in 1946. In 1988, owners Lynda Nenninger and Patricia Robinson decided to keep the restaurant open all year, except February, to provide continual fresh food, renown soups and friendly service to the residents of Bay Shore and its surrounding communities. Their motto is "Once you've nibbled, we'll have you hooked" and judging by the loyal clientele, the motto has proven to be true!

If you love chowder, whether it be New England or Manhattan style, you'll love the chowder at the Chowder Bar. The New England style is filled with seafood, vegetables and lots of good seasonings in a delicious creamy stock. The Manhattan version is just as chunky with an even fuller, heartier flavor.
