Good food and chowder, right off the boat. If the timing is right you can see the seals swimming around.

we heard they had the best scallop roll, so we went to give it a try. Parking lot was full, with spaces big enough for a mini. Plan on parking on one of the streets. We parked at least 1/4 mile away and were immeadiately told to leave by the property owner. Not exactly a nice day in Chatham.

My husband took me to the Chatham Pier and Fish Market as a Birthday Surprise. We walked along the beach. Watched the boats bring in fish, lobster and scallops. We saw a lot of seals. Then we ate some delicious seafood. It was a beautiful day. I love coming here. It is one of my favorite spots to visit.

If you ever get to Chatham on Cape Cod visiting the fishing pier is a great activity for all. Seeing seals in their natural environment is amazing. The day we visited 8 seals were swimming around in the harbor waiting for the fisherman to throw scraps of fish out to them. Also, downtown Chatham is very close and a great... More

A happening fish market with fishing boats coming in all throughout the afternoon. Fantastic fresh lobster and clam chowder.

We don't realize the strenuous job of a fisherman. The fish pier reminds us of another way of life which we take for granted.

We got there at around 11:30 and had read that the fishing boats come in around 4pm with their catches and that seals come up to the boats for fish. Some smaller boats came in and sure enough we saw the seals. The views are great. I'd consider staying in this area next time I'm up at the cape. It's... More

We went to the Chatham Pier on our day trip down the cape and enjoyed spotting seals who we're swimming and sunning 20 ft away. The 14 and 11 year old loved it, as did we! Highly recommend it. Seeing the fishing boats moored was very picturesque also.

We make sure to get here every summer when at the Cape! Such a great experience! Free and you always see seals and the fishermen dropping off their fresh catch. Observation deck is great spot to see it all. Great for kids of all ages! You can also grab some seafood here!

We always go here at least once when we visit the Cape. It has the best fried cod I have ever tasted! Cute t-shirts.
