Bob's Chowder Bar


Skagit Valley's Iconic Seafood Restaurant.

 

A Destination

Bob's Chowder Bar & BBQ Salmon started at the Anacortes Farmers Market.  On Saturdays, locals gathered for Bob's grilled wild salmon and award winning clam chowder.  The team decided to offer their food year round and the restaurant was born.  We're glad to have a gathering place for locals and visitors alike.  Bob's is the place for families, for fun and for great seafood.  Bob's is the home of world famous Lemon Love Dressings.

Bob's is proud to say that we are "wild, fresh and local."  Bob's Chowder Bar & BBQ Salmon serves only wild salmon.  Each filet is approved by our team before it comes to your table. 

Bob's isn't about fancy; Bob's is about good food.  Our wild Pacific caught cod is hand battered and breaded.  We take pride in our recipe that creates light, golden fish and chips.

We know not everyone in the group likes seafood (though we don't know why) so we have a great selection of tasty meals that will make all landlubbers happy. 

 

 

Gluten Free, we gotcha covered.  Bob's features gluten free buns for our sandwiches, gluten free fish and chips and gluten free salads.  All of our dressings are gluten and dairy free. 

Vegan, no worries; Bob's features a Vegan wrap just for you.

At Bob's we say that "the only thing that comes in a can is the ketchup."  All of our sauces are made from scratch.  Our Lemon Love, Tangerine Tango and Ba Da Bing salad dressings have become regional favorites and are now featured in local grocery stores.

The CREW


The CREW


Babs and Bob

Owners

Babs and Bob never planned on opening a restaurant.  Actually, on their wedding day they vowed they never would.  But their love of serving great food and meeting new people meant only one thing....they had to open a "fun dining" restaurant. 

 

Our Captain

Manager

Captain Bri is our steadfast captain.  Bri came to us fresh out of high school. She has studied and learned to become a chef in her own right.  Bri has been in training for her new position for 2 years.  Her dedication to customer service is second to none.  Bri has grown as we've grown and we are happy to see her at the helm.

The "A" TEam

Crew

Ship builders will agree:  you can build a beautiful boat but without a crew it will never leave the dock.  We have the best team in A-town (Anacortes for you visitors).  Each team member brings a passion for people and service to Bob's.  Our team knows that good food must have a great experience.
