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!

A simple working pier and fishing harbour with some of the best food on the Cape cooked simply by the sea! Nothing more to ask for.

You can sit on the pier and watch the boats coming in. There are supposed to be seals there too but we didn't see them - to early in the day I think. The shop sells seafood and fish and chips and they were just delicious. I thought the British were supposed to make the best fish and chips!

We spent the week in Chatham and walked to the Chatham Pier to watch the fishing boats come in with their catch of the day ... can't get any fresher than that! The seals and gulls like to watch for scraps ... great photo opp. The Fish Market has a nice selection to pick from (cod, haddock, sole, lobster, scallops,... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Chatham Pier and Fish Market. At the dock you will see the fishing boats come in and unload their catch. Seals are in abundance , and the raised viewing area makes watching the harbor activities a real treat. There is a ramp that allows for wheelchair access, so that this is a facility that... More

While visiting Cape Cod, I decided to visit to get a fresh cooked to order lobster and chowder. After receiving my order I asked about butter for the lobster. I was told that they sell butter by the stick and they'll melt it for free. This should be mentioned at the time of ordering - my lobster was Luke warm... More

We were fascinated to be able to watch the fish being unloaded, and the seals swimming around hoping for some accidental spills!

Just a sort drive from Chatham. Go in the afternoon when the fishing boat are coming in. You will see the catch of the day and see many seals. They are fun to watch. You can also buy fresh fish at the market
