Everyone loves a good cup of clam chowder. We continually enjoy  listening to  our guest’s  talk about their dining experiences. It’s always a chuckle when guests go on an adventure to find the best cup of chowder during their stay on Cape Cod.

Listed below are the 10 Reader’s Pick for Best Clam Chowder by the Cape Cod Times.


1. Captain Parker’s Pub in West Yarmouth. Captain Parker’s has a great cup of chowder and they continually receive awards for their recipe. It’s chuck full of fresh clams and is very creamy and flavorful.

2. The Lobster Pot in P’Town. We always recommend to our guests that they have a casual lunch or dinner at this great restaurant after their whale watching adventures. This restaurant has fresh lobster and great a great picnic style atmosphere. The views on the second floor are lovely vistas of the P’Town harbor.
