There’s A Floating Restaurant In Southern California You Have To See To Believe
Did you know Southern California was home to a unique and rustic floating restaurant right here in the Los Angeles Harbor? If you love learning about little-known destinations in SoCal then you’ll be delighted to discover this hidden gem. Take a look.
Located in Leeward Bay Marina, you'll find the one and only Chowder Barge which just so happens to be the only floating restaurant in the Los Angeles Harbor Region.
To experience the Chowder Barge for yourself, just head to 611 N Henry Ford Ave in Wilmington, CA in Los Angeles County.
This hidden gem may not be easy to find as you can't spot it from the road, but once you get there it is sooooo worth the adventure of finding it.
The Chowder Barge is by no means a fancy restaurant. But, if you're looking for a cozy haunt where in-the-know locals go, then you're going to be glad you found this place.
On the inside of the restaurant you'll find a rustic interior with whimsical nautical touches throughout.
When it comes to the food, the clam chowder bread bowl is one dish you don't want to miss. It's so thick and creamy and packed with clams that you'll need a knife and fork to eat it.
Love Fish and Chips? Well you're in luck, as the Chowder Barge serves up a mean platter of flaky fish and perfectly crisped fries.
If you're looking for something on the lighter side, you can't go wrong with this shrimp salad that looks like a flavorful option.
In addition to delicious food, you'll also get to enjoy this view right outside your window or patio seat. It's one of the many benefits of dining at a floating restaurant.
And stick around after dark and you'll find the Chowder Barge is especially fun and funky when it's all aglow with twinkly lights.
