If you want the best chowder of your life you NEED to try this chowder!
There food is amazing and I have had everything on the menu and all of it was amazing and delicious
Food is fabulous. Went with group of six people. Everyone loved their food. Especially the clam chowder, smoked salmon Mac&cheese, pulled pork, panini and salad. Everything has delicious smoked salmon on or in it. The place is bright and fresh and the owners are attentive and efficient. Oh yea, let’s not forget the homage carrot cake. I would give them 10 stars if I could.
The food is absolutely amazing and I love the service and people here! Love the shops and product!
New restaurant with a fun atmosphere and wonderful food. Everything I have tried is delicious. I am definitely coming back for more and more! The cheesecake is to die for, it's gluten free and light, not heavy, just delightful. You need to come and tryout they delicious menu. You will not be disappointed.
Definitely worth a shot. Try this place out, everything is PERFECT!!
My wife heard about this Gem of a place on the radio. Drove down today from Olympia to check it out and was not disappointed. We had the pulled pork sandwich, pulled pork Panini and a cup of The Salmon chowder and salads. The food was amazing. More amazing than the food was the customer service. Definitely will be going back to try more offerings from the menu. I will call ahead to reserve a slice of Carrot Cake :). The warm brownie and ice cream was very good also! See ya soon!
I had the pulled pork Mac and cheese and it was amazing!! Some of the best Mac and cheese (and pulled pork) I’ve ever had - no joke, it’s a must have.For dessert I had their brownies, topped with caramel and chocolate sauce which was also delicious!The service was great and very quick as well. Would definitely recommend!!!
Fantastic fishFantastic service
Superb and delicious! Wonderful, friendly owners. I had the Salmon chowder with a Pulled Pork sandwhich. Chowder was creamy and rich with nice sized salmon chunks. The pork was ,tender, juicy and lean. Will be on my top places to dine list.
You haven’t lived lived until you’ve had the salmon chowder here! Absolutely made with love and care . Excellent customer service. Reasonable prices. Perfect portions . My Family and friends will be eating at the Salmon Smokehouse many more times !
Danielle and staff are a delight. Lovely place, lovely food. Don’t leave without trying the chowder! 10/10 would recommend
No matter what you think you're walking into, you'd be incorrect. The vision of the owner of this space had is impressive and the menu is both comfortable and unique
First time being here, the atmosphere was welcoming and cozy with a lot of items to look at while I waited for my food. The salmon Mac n cheese was delicious, small serving perfect to fill you up. Service was very fast I was in and out less than 20 minutes and had enough time to eat and look around within the 20 minutes. Go here if you want friendly and fast service. I also like how enthusiastic the staff were about showing me around.
Good lord this place is amazing. The portions are filling. We had the clam chowder, smoked salmon Mac n cheese, side salads and tuna melt. It’s so good it’s actually offensive. The staff is incredible and welcoming. You can tell they take genuine pride here.
Food was exactly what I expected amazing food amazing people thanks for the great good and service 🙌
Highly recommend their salmon mac&cheese and their pulled pork sandwich!
Wow! The Mac and cheese with pulled pork was out of this world. This was an amazing experience. Great customer service as well.
Amazing new restaurant in Chehalis. Food was outstanding and the service first rate. Extremely clean and well lit setting.The pulled pork was some of the best I have eaten. We will put this one on our regular rotation of dining out.
Best food I've had in a long time owners were were very friendly and had great service. I would definitely recommend this place 10 out of 10 flavors
The best smoked salmon! The best smoked Mac & Cheese.I live in Bremerton and am always thinking of how long it would take to go and grab dinner. I look forward to my next visit as soon as I leave the restaurant. Food is awesome. Service is awesome. The price is low and the quantity is enough for leftovers. Four adults was $65 and we ordered the big portions. You would be a fool to order anything other than the largest size as the leftovers are great.
incredible salmon chowder and mac & cheese. The service was perfectly nice. Will definitely return. Will recommend to all friends and family to come here. Great addition to Chehalis best smoked salmon I've ever had, and salmon chowder without a doubt.
New locally owned "taste of the Northwest" restaurant. Nice atmosphere, friendly service, great menu choices. Excellent food. Will definitely go back.
Incredibly tasty smoked fish. Full stop. The chowder was incredible, the sandwich was fighting for the number one spot - super inviting space as well, I'll have to go back and check out the artisan offerings!
Friends, if you haven't already, go check out NW Salmon Smokehouse on Market St in Chehalis!!! So amazing! BEST Smoked Salmon chowder I've ever had!! The mac-n-cheese is to die for! Janelle sent me home with a big ol slice of fresh homemade carrot cake that I'm sure will not make it through the evening. They should be winning all the awards for that food. 👏👏👏Frank and Danielle have made it an amazing little place to grab brunch, lunch or dinner and shop local vendors.10/10⭐️ DEFINITELY RECOMMEND
Amazing spot to grab a bite to eat! Dine in or take out their salmon dip is so good! Can’t wait to try their clam chowder 🥰
Cute place.Salmon chowder is very good. Smoked mac and cheese is very good.Service is great.
Danielle and Fred have opened up an amazing little restaurant here. I first went several weeks ago and tried the chowder and the Mac and cheese, and knew I'd be back. Their smoked salmon is great, but then I tried the pulled pork and knew this was my new weekly spot. Its hard to pick which I'll get each week! Sometimes I have to go twice so I can have more than one option. Add some mac'n'cheese to the pulled pork potato for a real treat! Service is also always great, Danielle really went out of her way to get to know my preferences and even when I forgot to ask for no onions she always remembers. Don't miss out on this new gem in downtown chehalis!
Perfect service! The food is delicious! If you're a fan of chowder or Mac & Cheese, you'll definitely love it here! The place and perfectly clean and open. The boss and employees are open and friendly. Come here if you're in the Chehalis area!
The bathroom was amazing. It was this beautiful shade of purple that really brought the entire place together.The food however, exquisite! I really enjoyed the samples that they give out. Reminds me of worst times (Costco on a sunday). What I got was; pulled pork mac n cheese (small size was plenty), a cup of soup (rich and creamy), an Oat milk steamer w/hazelnut, and a server who was gorgeous.Everything tasted and looked amazing. Their mac was smokey, creamy, and delicious. The pork that topped it was smokey and the best I ever had. The soup was amazing and I HATE the taste of fish but was swayed with the sweet words of my server. She was right and I am surprised how I much I liked it. My steamer was also good, it wasnt burnt nor too sweet. I will be coming back to use the bathroom.
This is the absolute best smoked salmon ever! The salmon chowder and the salmon dip are phenomenal! The smoke house baker with Mac and cheese….cant go wrong! Friendly staff and wonderful service!Love all the local products available to purchase! Right in the heart of downtown Chehalis! This is my go to spot!
My first time here and everything was perfect ! Friendly atmosphere, great customer service, and their bbq pulled pork is the best I’ve had so far.Service with a smile.I will definitely recommend this place to everyone, and I’ll be going back there a lot more when I’m in the mood for bbq.
Amazing! You have to try it all! Soooo good! Service, food, atmosphere, all amazing. Definitely recommend!
The food was fresh and cooked to perfection
The salmon chowder is my favoriteMust try everything!
The food was absolutely wonderful and very friendly service.Very nice place.
Excellent food and service! Will totally be back. Lots of cool handmade items to look at while you wait for your food. Great spot in downtown Chehalis.
I visited my mother in Centralia and she said she wanted to try this new place. It was amazing. I had the salmon panini, she had the chowder. Both were exactly what we wanted. The salads were delicious as well. There is a sort of miniature farmer's market inside of there with local goods. Great to see local businesses supporting each other. Will be back with the wife.
Super good food at a good price. Best smoke salmon I’ve had. Will definitely be coming back
Went there on a Friday early afternoon.The salmon smelled good. I was able to enjoy the smell before even tasting it. It tasted good, too - no fishy smell.The chowder was rich and not too salty. The ratio of salmon, potatoes (?), and soup was good - no obtrusive chunky feeling. Herbs added complexity to the taste in a good way.The salmon mac & cheese avoided a common issue encountered by certain bacon mac & cheese - the salmon and mac and cheese worked together instead of the salmon's stealing all the spotlight. The amount and types of cheese made the mac & cheese alone taste good, and the smoked salmon further added complexity of texture and flavor to the whole dish.The herby bread that came with the mac & cheese was surprisingly good.The salmon panini was good, but I haven't thought of how to describe the delicious spread.The seating was good. Good space between different tables, and nice street or store view (depending on the direction). The store was a relaxing place with clean interior and comfortable atmosphere to shop some interesting products, such as rather unusual kind of soap, tea, sauce, salad dressing, etc.The owners (?) and staff were friendly and sometimes identified our needs before we said anything.Those who like the smoked salmon and/or spread can buy some to take home, too.The experience was relaxing and great.
Fun laidback spot for a quiet lunch or a dinner celebration. A small group of friends stopped in for a birthday lunch midweek. We had a great time. The staff was great and the food was nice. It was fun to have some different items on the menu to choose from; salmon, smoked cheese, albacore tuna....
Definitely recommend getting the smoked salmon Mac n cheese. It's so delicious and the portions are massive!!
The food is amazing and to die for! Literally everything we ordered was incredible. Salmon chowder, salad, Mac n cheese, tuna melt…. All of it! EVERYTHING! Must eat here more often!
Best smoked salmon mac and cheese! Will definitely be back for the legendary salmon chowder
Love this placeFantastic food and very friendly serviceSmoked salmon is excellent
Took my granddaughter there yesterday for lunch. The customer service was awesome, and I would highly recommend their baked potato with pulled pork, not to forget mentioning their smoked Mac n’ cheese. Sampled some smoked salmon spread offered to us from the owner, and found it to be delicious.I would definitely return there, and recommend it to everyone I know.
Staff are great, food is amazing (especially their pulled pork and soups), and the amount of other offered goods is very diverse and super worth looking into as they all locally sourced items!
Great staff, great prices, great food. Grabbed lunch for the whole family and they loved it. The pulled pork mac n cheese was delicious and the carrot cake was amazing.
