Chowder House - Cuyahoga Falls

It looks thick in the picture, but it wasn't.  It was good.
Located on a side street off State Rd. in Cuyahoga Falls, you could drive by a million times and not even notice this small restaurant.  There is actually a good amount of tables in the restaurant and on one side the wall to the kitchen is open.  The decor is very eccentric, very colorful.  The menu is small, but offers a lot of options.  We both started with soup.  We were going to get the clam chowder since that is what the place is called, but I like potatoes in mine, and TBG wanted lobster.  He got the lobster bisque shown above and I got the french onion.  The lobster bisque tasted like rue to me.  I thought it needed a lot more flavor.  I didn't even taste lobster.  TBG said he only got about 2 pieces of lobster.  He said those pieces were good and the soup wasn't the worst he has ever had.  I do not know if that is saying much though.  The french onion was very good.  Very flavorful, the bread was toasted and the cheese plentiful.  There were a lot of onions, but they were cooked perfectly and were sweet.  Let me take a moment to talk about the service.  When we first sat down the waitress was wonderful.  After ordering our soup we had a new waitress.  She was not good.  Slow to refill our water, not nice in general and was not really nice when TBG's burger was cooked wrong.  For our entrees I decided to get one of the specials, seafood pasta with mussels, scallops, and a white wine sauce.  It was really good.  The scallops here huge, and there was plenty of seafood.  The pasta was swimming in sauce, I have honestly never seen so much sauce on pasta before.  Even with the amount of sauce, the pasta was not mushy, and the sauce was tasty.  There was plenty of delicious fresh Italian cheese.  TBG got a Kobe burger with bleu cheese and a variety of pickles.  It came with some garlic smashed potatoes.  The burger was over cooked with just a little spot of pink in the middle.  For those of you that do not know.  TBG always orders his burger Mid Rare and if you are going to error, on the raw side would be best.  Overcooked meat is the worst thing you can serve to TBG.  He was heart broken.  The pickles were good, but that didn't matter anymore.  He didn't even eat the rest of the pasta I had left because he lost his appetite.  We told the waitress and she said she would tell the kitchen.  Not sure what that helped.  She didn't offer to get him anything else or take anything off our bill.  I thought the prices were a little much.  Mine did have a lot of seafood, and his was Kobe beef, but if you never know what kind of quality you are going to get then the prices are not worth it.  They do not have a liquor license, but you can bring your own.  After going to Sugo we were really excited to try the Chowder House.  The same owner/chef runs both places.  I would probably go back if someone wanted to go, but TBG and I won't be taking any dates there.
