Success! Thanks for posting your review of Ed's Chowder House. You’ve done the world some good today.


Had my sister's graduation dinner at Ed's - service was really poor. Our waitress seemed like she was in a hurry to get us out; never once came by to check on us. The manager had to come by to introduce himself. The appetizers were great our entrees were okay. Overall I'm not sure if I'll be back.

Wow! Best lobster bisque I've ever had!

My husband took me to Ed’s for my birthday and I was blown away...the food was fantastic, the service was great, the décor – white leather banquettes, rich, dark wood, mirrors & crystal - elegant but not stuffy - I loved it! I'm originally from the Boston area so I'm very particular about my seafood and I loved the pureed lobster bisque... rich, creamy & smooth. We split a surf & turf - filet mignon & grilled jumbo s... view more

Just not good enough for the money disappointed

After reading rave reviews from Time Out magazine, I made sure to run over for a sampling. For a $70 lunch I expect clams in my clam chowder. The ladies sitting next to us and had the trio of soups and said they didn't like any of them. The couple on the other side said they had no clams in their chowder. The crab cake was fantastic. The lobster roll was loaded with lobster, the rest of the ingrdients let us down. Am... view more

Decent value; poor service

As others have mentioned, Ed's Chowder House has a few bright points (nice decor, good corn chowder, lobster value), however the horrible service is such a drawback that I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone. As other have mentioned, the service was nowhere near what should be expected for a restaurant offering $3 oysters, $20-30 entrees, and $10-13 drinks. It must have been the waiter's first day since he did... view more

Awful, absolutely awful

Unless you're 65 or older they won't pay any attention to you. We recently went in for dinner and had some of the worst service we've ever had. We both live in Manhattan and dine at nice restaurants frequently (not that Ed's is considered a nice restaurantby any means). In fact, we had been to Center Cut and had a wonderful experience. All I can say is they should have kept the wait and kitchen staff. While the food ... view more

Give'em a chance!

The smoked cod cakes were great as was the tuna steak. My friend had the fluke which was colorful and big on flavor and texture. All in all a great place to have been open barely a week when I went. The waiter seemed to know his stuff but was clearly being pulled in 5 different directions my management micromanaging his next move. It would have been nice to see him do things his way. Nevertheless, I will be back. I j... view more

Not Yet Ready & Unimaginably Poor Service

Our waiter was so bad he was sent home midway during our meal. I'm not kidding. That bad. And the assistant manager, who tried to recover, still had some fatal flaws that will keep me from returning. It doesn't matter if this place has just opened, this wasn't the ""B"" team on duty, it was more like the untrained, unexperienced ""D"" team. First, we were made to wait at the bar though we were on time for our 7pm res... view more

I haven't been to this restaurant and I wanted to try. So I look at the 3 most recent, quite detailed on the food and very generous on how fabulous everything, except that they all sound like they're written by the same person....on the same day Jan 7, 2009. hahaha, how pathetic. the ""reviewers"" only wrote for this one restaurant. coincidence? maybe, but i doubt it.

Fantastic Steak Dinner, not old school steakhouse stuff

My friends and I had a delicious dinner at Center Cut. We've been to the other steakhouses where they basically walk you through a preset menu and every experience is like the last. Boring. Not so at Center Cut. While they brought back some classic steak options to the menu, they do it in a modern way. The divers scallops app was a great starterd, really flavorful. Our entres were perfect. My Steak Oscar felt a littl... view more
