The public has full access to the goings on when the fishermen bring in their catch. We visited mid afternoon and could watch from a raised balcony as the fish were unloaded from the boats and weighed before being driven away to market. The catch was mostly dog fish with some flat fish and lobster. We saw seals in the... More

Yes the lobster rolls are $20 each. Yes they are totally worth it. It is great to come here in September when the summer crowd chaos has died down and you can still see all the comings & goings of the fishing boats. This is one of the most beautiful places in Chatham to get a great view of the... More

We arrived around 11:00 in the morning to watch the local fisherman unload their catch.

There was a "pier advisor" who answered questions and... More

A fun thing to do each year and see the daily catch. It's cool to see the different kinds of fish they bring in each year. Definitely a great place to take families, kids or people who haven't been to the area.

There was a great fish market with small sharks coming in on a gurney for all to see. Kind of sad, but great to photograph.

It was interesting to see the local catches coming in and the seals poking up their pretty faces! There was a pier host to answer any questions visitors have.

Rolls were brioche, added interesting sweetness to the lobster roll. Small piece of lettuce included. Small cole slaw and fries included. Enjoyed. Order inside and pick up at outside window. Afew parking spaces in lower lot next to market, we parked in upper level and walked down steps. Great place for photos of working boats in observatory, just a few... More

It is fun to stand and watch the fish come in. Also you can get good seafood. If you are nearbye this is a good place to visit. A nice time to go is in the evening and sometimes there are seals in the water. The fish market has good food and good stuff to but.

Best fish and scallops ever. We always look forward to seafood from the Chatham Fish Pier. The harbor view is pretty and we enjoy walking the area.
