This is a shack and a fish market by the sea ! It is delightful in the summer to buy lunch and take it over to the picnic tables and eat outside . That is the experience . The fish is fresh and well prepared . I love whole belly clams and ate them twice at The Pier and Fish... More

The fresh salt air and the views are invigorating, and the cavorting harbor seals are precious to see.

We stopped and watch the local fishermen bring their boats in full of fresh fish. Many dog fish which look like little sharks. They say they use them in London for fish and chips. The birds and a few sea lions were there as well looking for a hand out. Very cool.

Just not able to work with special requests as have been earlier owners. E.G., you have a dozen things on your mind for week-long or weekend guests and you want to order shucked oysters for Saturday night... or cooked lobsters. You do not want to address it again until the time you have told them you would be there to... More

The fish doesn't get any fresher. right off the boats but the prices are crazy. As soon as July hits the prices skyrocket and they hold until September/ October. Then they close. Food with an attitude, welcome to Chatham...

To see the seals and buy fresh fish, it's a good place to stop by. Although we expected a bigger fish market.

I am from Chicago, and we do not have tours of the stockyards (now outside of town) to watch steers hit in the head, but, but, this, really is the same thing for the poor fish. Very interesting and all part of the deal when you sign on to that farm to table movement. I bet by the time this... More

You have to stop by and watch the fishermen unload their catches for the day (get there around 11-12 noon) and then grab some food to go from the market. AMAZING scallop roll, fish and chips, and chowder. You can sit outside or take it to your car. Great lunch stop. As fresh as it gets!
