Sudden Valley residents now have some seafood option without having to drive into Bellingham.
Barbara and Robert Atterberry recently opened Bob’s Chowder Bar inside the Valley Market at 2275 Lake Whatcom Blvd. Menu items include food seen at their Anacortes restaurant, including fish and chips, wild grilled salmon, prawns, oysters and clam chowder. The Valley Market has a seating area, so customers can hang out and eat or take it to go with their groceries.
Barbara Atterberry said they went with a quiet opening earlier this month and were very pleased with the feedback from Sudden Valley residents.
“This is our fifth year in business and our goal was to grow,” she said. “We’re just glad Sudden Valley folks are happy we’re here.”
The chowder bar’s hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and open an hour later on Friday and Saturday. The company also makes dressings like Lemon Love, which is also sold at the market.
Details about the company can be found on its Facebook page.
