We are now considered regulars at c&s I think. We started coming about 2 months ago and now this is our spot once a week. Service is always phenomenal and food is great. Cant wait to come back and see our favorite server Brenden!

The waitress ruined our dinner... she asked the table next to ours if they had any allergies, did not ask us and I do have allergies! Then every table got bread but ours... then my husbands dinner was brought out wrong, so they substituted something else without asking him, that’s why he ordered it, he sent it back.. they did comp our meal but it was unacceptable

The food and service were great as usual, but we didn’t know that the a/c wasn’t working until we sat down and had ordered. It was unbearably warm, which just doesn’t make for a pleasant meal.

We were very excited to try out this restaurant as we had gone to their other restaurant (Hugo’s) and enjoyed it. My two issues were that it was incredibly hot in the restaurant and the service was below average. They may have had an air conditioning issue as they had fans running in the front of the restaurant, but they never mentioned anything about it and we were just sweating through our entire dinner. Our waiter seemed to be overwhelmed and apologized several times for the slow service but given their were adequate staff in the restaurant not sure what the problem was. Our bill was $160 for two so one would expect better for a higher end seafood restaurant.

First time here so we decided to try the bar for drinks and move to a table for lunch. Bartender Michelle was an absolute joy. She was so kind and knowledgeable when we asked a million questions about oysters. When we moved to a table she continued to wait on us and we just loved all of it. The lobster rolls are delicious!

First time at Chowder House today after a coworker recommended the Sunday Lobster Special. Manager Kolton was so accommodating and Jared was very attentive. My husband and I both had the lobster lazy style. We tried the bread pudding and chocolate lava cake. Best desserts in town!

Food was outstanding except the daily special crab stuffed shrimp was resoundingly meh. Deviled eggs were specially good, enjoyed the variation which included roe and the perfect amount of bacon, not overpowering. Salads were predominantly the inner romaine hearts which is disappointing. Service was absolutely exceptional.

It was a special anniversary for us. Patrick made it all perfect. Flowers, a card and special treats throughout our evening. Our server, Tina, was great and so attentive and fun. The crab cakes lived up to the reputation C&S has earned and recently cited in AJC for a top restaurant for crab cakes in Atlanta. I highly recommend C&S for any occasion. Food and service are excellent!

Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. We have dined at other restaurants belonging to these owners and have been pleased. I ordered the mussels and they were awful- worst I have ever had. Management was very apologetic and of course brought me another dish at no charge but that doesn’t really compensate for the fact that these mussels were obviously not inspected by the kitchen and should never have been served.

Always a smiling manager at the door to greet you. Servers are professional and knowledgeable, even the young men who run the food are friendly and polite. And of course the bartenders here are always top notch. We waited a few minutes for a cocktail and never complained but the bartender personally brought us our drinks and apologized for the wait. Absolutely outstanding C&S Chowder House.

What a cute little neighborhood gem! I can’t believe we had never been in here before. The lighting and seashells hanging from the bar create such an appealing atmosphere. Out standing service. Food was great as well. One minor issue with some cold chargrilled oysters but the manager on duty personally apologized and quickly brought us a new order which was hot and delicious! Definitely worth another visit!

I love everything about this restaurant! I've been twice and everything has been amazing. I will say, that I've eaten the same meal twice, but it was so great the first time, that I had to eat it again. I had the char-grilled oysters and they are to DIE for and the New England clam chowder which is by far the best chowder I've ever had. We may have to go monthly so we can try some other options.

We have been to C&S on multiple occasions and have always had a great experience, but this time was exceptionally special. It was just a date night for my husband and I as we put in our opentable reservation but we were absolutely in awe with how we were treated during our visit. Young manager, Colten as he introduced himself at the door, told us he had set something up... roses, a candle, and it was reserved in their private booth area! Our waiter James took great care of us and was very knowledgeable. The food was incredible as always. Thank you for everything C&S, we will have to get our babysitter to work more often!
