In a little house built in 1946, the Chowder Bar by the Maple Avenue dock offers a wide range of seafood classics.

Here, you'll find clam bisque, mussels marinara and fried scallops. If it's a sandwich you're after, the menu features everything from a "fishburger" to crab cakes on a bun to broiled open-faced tilapia. There are pastas, such as linguine with clam sauce, and entrees like grilled shrimp over field greens and broiled blackened Cajun catfish.
