Pike Place Chowder

Seattle's Award-Winning, Hall-of-Fame chowder cafés named America's #1 & Seattle's Best, serving 8 varieties daily.

With two Seattle locations, Pike Place Chowder first opened its doors in 2003 in Pike Place Market, followed by the 2007 launch of a second location in the Pacific Place shopping center.

Owner and Founder, Larry Mellum, runs a tight ship when it comes to serving only the best, a standard that has earned dozens of wins in regional and national competitions, including induction into the Great Chowder Cook-Off Hall-of-Fame.

In 2011 and 2012, Pike Place Chowder won the coveted People’s Choice Award at the West Coast Chowder Cook Off in Monterey, CA.

Pike Place Chowder's Secret Recipe Gives the East Coast a Run For Its Money


Watch Lucas Peterson, host of Eater 's Dining on a Dime, as he samples our chowder! He digs into the New England version, thickened with milk or cream, as well as the Manhattan version, which is red because of the addition of tomatoes.
