Visiting the Cape to enjoy the 4th of July and found this spot to view seals. Most of the fishing vessels were finished already but we did see one boat unloading flounder and lobsters. Most of the people (including U.S.) came to see the seals playfully swimming around. No less than 8 were having a great time swimming and playing... More

The Chatham Pier and Fish Market was in a beautiful location but is limited in places to sit and eat or anything else to do other than a quick bite to eat or purchasing fish.

the best place on the cape to see fish being off-loaded from the boats. A good observation deck so that you can really see what is going on and also so that you can get some good pictures. Chances are that one of the resident gray seals will be begging for hand-outs too. Also there is someone there all the... More

A great place to watch the boats unload their daily catches! There's a terrific elevated landing to enjoy, with wonderful views of the surrounding areas. It's a great place to watch the boats come and go!

Pretty tasty lunch if you are at the pier. You walk in and order. Bottled drinks are available. Pick it up at the window. There are two picnic tables across the way so you can sit down and enjoy. The lobster roll is pricey but good. The clam chowder was nice and light. The cole slaw was also very light.... More

We like to watch them unload the boats in the afternoon--'can't get fresher than that! We go lobster to take out that they had cooked for us, along with cole slaw and potato salad--we at it on a picnic table at the Hawthorne, where we were staying.

Neat spot to watch the boats coming in to the pier. I thought the fish was overpriced. Parked and walked down a flight of stairs to get there.

The offer the largest and most tastiest Lobster Roll that listed price is a great value. Fries accented with sea salt taste wonderful, and the combo scallops and clams is a platter and a half. You'll find any better or priced at its value.

Freshest fish you can find. Right off the day-boats. Whatever they caught that day is put out. They also don't know what they will have day to day. It's that fresh. If your cooking' on the cape, this is a must.

After biking from Harvich, road down to do the tourist thing. Chatham is a beautiful New England town with a lot of local charm. Watching boats, lobstermen, and seal sharing the water was a great way to relax after biking.
