Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Chowder House

Over the weekend, I was very busy for the Easter holiday. On top of it being Easter, my mom’s birthday was Saturday. For her birthday, we went to a new restaurant I had never been to. It is located in Cuyahoga Falls, OH and called Chowder House. Although I had never been there before, my mom picked the restaurant because she loves the place and goes there pretty frequently.

When you first walk in this restaurant, it is like no other place in the valley. The restaurant use to be a coffee shop before and the original owner hand painted and decorated the entire restaurant. Each room is special and it has a very artsy feel.

Since my mom goes there pretty frequently, she was greeted at the door with a happy birthday from the wait staff to make her birthday experience even better. Once we were seated, I needed to figure out what I wanted to order since I was not familiar with the menu. After looking over everything, I decided on a portabella sandwich. This sandwich consisted of portabella mushrooms, goat cheese, roasted red peppers and sautéed onions on bread. It was really good, but I could only eat half. I also decided to order French onion soup to start because I heard their soups and chowders were really good. After it came, I was really happy I ordered it because it was delicious.

Besides my meal, my brother ordered a Kobe burger and fresh red skin potatoes. My dad ordered fresh onion soup and pulled pork, and my mom ordered a wedge salad and mussels.

Our service was not up to par that night because it was very busy, but overall the restaurant was a great experience and a lot of fun. I would definitely go back and try something new again.

Price Range: $8-$10 for sandwiches, $14-$20 for entrees

*They do not serve any alcohol so if you want to come and drink, you are allowed to bring in your own wine, beer etc. at no extra charge

  1. I love portabella mushrooms. I order them whenever I can. They grill up easily on the grill at home too.
