Seafood
Chowder House is the brainchild of Rich Clark and Jonathan Schwenk, co-owners of C&S Seafood and Oyster Bar and Hugo’s Oyster Bar. Clark and Schwenk's third concept will focus on traditional northeastern seafood with a New England style décor. Chowder House strives to deliver a vast selection of high-quality oysters, an array of clam chowders, and traditional dishes such as, steamed clams, lobster rolls, lobsters and steaks. The restaurant will also offer a seasonally rotating market fish menu, cooked to each guest’s preference. Chowder House promises well-crafted signature cocktails to compliment the classic American cuisine, along with a wide-ranging selection of wines and craft beer available on draft, in bottles or cans. Chowder House will be open daily for dinner, with brunch offerings on Saturday and Sunday.

C&S Chowder House was an incredible experience. We utilized the OpenTable app, and secured a 6 pm table on a Friday night. My wife and I really enjoyed eating at Hugo's so it was only natural to broaden the experience with the sister restaurants...Now this is the second of the three, the last hurdle will be the C &S Seafood and Oyster Bar.
Walking in was nice, we were greeted with a warm welcome reaffirming the reservation, we opted to have a couple of cocktails at the Bar, which prompted us to meet Mike, the Lead Mixologist in Charge... a couple of drinks later our table was ready but we ask if they would accommodate us at the bar instead. This is where the action is...
two appetizers were ordered, the Rockefeller and the Grilled Oysters, we had a couple of scorched oysters, but mike remedied that by bringing out two more. Customer service at it best...
the wife ordered the Scallops and Grits with an unusual Edamame Pico... Which was Scrumptious.
My entree, the Blackened Grouper, light flaky juicy with an incredible Buerre Blanc which was laced with chunks of Jumbo Lump Crab, over a jasmine rice blend. (Honestly, i thought it was a bit dry and flavorless.i would have opted for a Fried Green Tomato Polenta which then would be grilled. That would help round out the Cajun flavors with a touch of jalapenos.
during the course of the evening we were visited by Patrick who is the GM, asked if everything was good, i told him about my referral by a former mutual colleague. We chatted a bit which ended up to be a pleasant, humorous, 20 minute discussion about Chicago and all points western...
The finale, consisted of a surprise dessert which was their take on Beignets supported with a side goose-neck with caramel pecan sauce.
27% tip was contributed.
loved the drink and the staff... Ill be back!

AMAZING!!! The Chowder was the best I have had definitely on par with the Chowder I experienced in Maine. Atmosphere was pleasant as we dined with some friends from the area we see occasionally.We are visiting from Ohio and thoroughly enjoyed this place. The owner visited our table and was a joy to talk to. Highly recommend and plan to revisit when in the area.

We went to C&S for Clam Night on March 29th. The service, food and the attention from management made the night for the nine of us a great event. For two of us we have been there many times. For the remainder of the group they had never been but absolutely be back. This is a neighborhood gem!

Very good chowder. Atmosphere was good. Service a little pushy, we wanted to take some time to enjoy drinks and waitress asked us every couple minutes if ready to order entrees - felt as though we were being pushed so they could turn the table. Would go back again as overall experience was good.

Server was kind and attentive but when we asked questions she would lean over and read our menu. We can read, that wasn’t helpful. When asked if chef could prepare a veggie entree server asked and said no. Order off menu. Later manager came over and inquired, and we mentioned the lack of vegetarian options. He said, you should have asked, chef would prepare pasta w veggies. We said we did ask! Manager immediately had pasta made for us, which was very nice. So we would go back. Enjoyed the flounder!

We arrived at 4:30 for an early dinner after theatre. There were few diners as it was early.
The music was so loud we asked the waiter if it could be lowered and he requested it although it was still prominent.
The food was delicious and served by an attentive waiter whose response to everything was “absolutely” - which was fine until
It became overused. Suggest waiters have a few alternative responses...but he was a good waiter nonetheless.
I don’t understand why restaurants insist on loud music...it should be a subtle background at best so table conversation does not need to be shouted..this is
not a disco!
Not an inexpensive dining option...will use for special occasions but prices rule out frequent returns.

Shared 7 or 8 of the small plates with three friends and all were great. The mussels in particular were superb. Good selection of fresh fish. Wine list offers good selections, but is pricey. This place is very popular, so be sure to make reservations. This has become a local hangout in the Crabapple area, so it gets loud. Probably the best restaurant in the Crabapple area right now.

We had a reservation for a party of 9 and the table was too small- the manager came over right when we were sat and apologized and he knew it was too small and said as soon as the table next to us left he would attach their table for two to ours but they were only on our salads. Although the restaurant emptied- they never gave us any more seating and it was very uncomfortablLe. Wouldn’t eat here again unless we had a table of 6 or less.

We’ve eaten here on several occasions and have always enjoyed the excellent seafood. Great menu. Happy to hear they had soft shell crabs tonight, but wish they had the fried clam strips available. They are out of this world as are the mussels and chowder. Our waiter, Jared, provided excellent service and was very personable. He even remembered us from a recent visit!! I’d definitely recommend this restaurant and we’ll be asking for Jared the next time we are in.

They went above and beyond our expectations. We continually try new restaurants, and rate them by if we would return or would we recommend to others. They accommodated our wish to try many menu items in small portions, food was delicious, nice atmosphere, noise level is important and this was just right. We had such good food and a wonderful experience.
We will definitely recommend this restaurant.

The clam chowder was excellent—maybe best ever—but the rest of the experience was lacking. While we think she was trying to be friendly, the waitress was loud and a bit abrasive. She had on way too strong of a perfume. And you could tell every time she had been out for a smoke break by the smell. The wrong food got delivered to the table which was quickly rectified. The oysters were small in number and small in size with lots of breading to try to make it look bigger. The salmon and the tuna were good. But overall, overpriced for the entire experience. With tip for 4 people, bill was 150.00 (no dessert or coffee).

The food was amazing! I really want to come back and I hope that the service improves. We were there on a Saturday night at 7:15. It was very busy, but we didn't get food until 8:30. Our waiter would disappear and then couldn't believe we didn't get our food. He was delayed in getting everything including ice tea. I think the bar tender noticed that we were getting frustrated so all of a sudden he brought over 4 glasses of champagne. 5 starts to him! I will definitely go back because the food was very tasty.
