Tom Kuron began playing golf many years ago,
when several people he worked with invited
him to join them on the course. He never really
took the game seriously, however, until eight
years ago, when the golf bug bit him hard.
Like all Golfaholics, he hit one or two of those
perfect golf shots and the golf golds whispered
in his ear,
“You can do this all the time.”
Of course we all know the golf gods lie, but we
become so addicted to the game, it doesn’t matter.
In 2002 Tom and his wife, Tina opened a small
deli and soup shop in downtown Waterville.
Excellent food and Tina’s homemade soups
made the new venture a success. With only
nine tables available for seating, lines would
form out the door and down the sidewalk at
lunch time. It became obvious a larger facility
was needed to meet the growing demand from
Chowders N Moor’s loyal customers.
In 2006 Kuron bought the current location at
312 South Street along the Anthony Wayne
Trail in Waterville. The new restaurant opened
on January 1, 2007.
Their menu has something for everyone and
features Tina’s famous White Chicken Chili. In
addition, Clam Chowder, the Grilled Reuben
on Marble Rye, the tastiest BLT in town, as well
as, many other delectable delights make this a
must-visit in Waterville.
If you love fish and seafood, Chowders has a
seafood menu complete with Shrimp, Tilapia,
Salmon, Crawfish, Crab Cakes and Lobster
Mac-n-cheese. Be sure to try my personal
favorite, the Perch Sandwich.
As the new location grew and prospered,
the Kurons even opened a second location
on Airport Highway. They operated both
restaurants for five years, but the strain of two
successful restaurants was taking its toll, plus
they had two young children at home which
