Beth Dunphy is a mother and grandmother who enjoys cooking and exploring. She takes every opportunity to get outdoors with her family. She was a hairdresser for almost 30 years when she became the owner of the Chowder House on Main in Tatamagouche, Nova Sco - tia. Dunphy grew up on a farm and loved that her moth - er always made home-cooked meals. The restaurant is a staple in the small village of Tatamagouche. Before Dunphy took over, the previous owner had owned and operated the restaurant in the same building for more than 25 years, and before that, it was a bakery and coffee shop. The iconic building has hosted many food establishments over the years and continues the tra - dition of feeding amazing meals to locals and tourists alike as the home to Chowder House on Main. Dunphy and her staff have served homecooked meals from scratch since 2013. While the regular clientele enjoys sitting in the restaurant to enjoy a hot meal,
Dunphy says they also have quick takeout options for those who are on a tight schedule or on a work break. She explains that the restaurant is located on Highway 6 better known as Main Street, and only a short walk - ing distance of other amenities and shops that have made the waterside town a travel destination.
“It has a happy vibe. It’s friendly, it’s fun, the people want to socialize and see what’s here.”
