ChowdaFest Review – Mansion Clam House, Westport

Okay, we know they won. But their chowder is SO much better at the restaurant! We reviewed it around Mother’s Day a few years back and we very much enjoyed it. But this time, it was “a floury mess” says ChowderDad.

It started as a 7 but got downgraded as we ate it. And we really all hate to say it isn’t great – because it really was great on site.

ChowderGirl says it is the only chowder she ate at ChowdaFest that wasn’t slightly yellow so it made her warm and fuzzy inside. But she still refused to finish it.

ChowderMom thought it was “mushy, bland, not buttery…but good on the thickness…thanks to the aforementioned floury mess.”

Even ChowderBoy, the most positive upbeat reviewer on the planet…downgraded it as he talked about his thoughts.


Sorry, Mansion. We will just have to go to Westport and eat it when it’s fresh.
