Any fresher and you'd have to slap it

yeah, I stole that line from Roger Berkowitz, and I fully expect to get sued for doing so, but it's true, so I will rely about truth as my defense.

Free sightseeing to see the seals come in with the fishing boats. Best to go around noon and then enjoy a lobster roll from the shop.

This is a small local commercial fishing harbor where boats come in and drop off their catch of the day. And you can watch the action. The moored boats are picturesque, seals are present hoping for a fish to fall into the water and the small fish market serves fresh food and fresh items to take home for your dinner.

We had heard there was fresh sushi here but it turned out they had vacated and were opening a place in Chatham proper which wasn't actually up and running yet. Very disappointed. There were no fishermen at the pier either though the views were stunning. I would like to try and get back when there's a little more excitement.

Sooo good. I can't say enough. The fish market itself is fabulous but they are a place inside to get sandwiches and fried seafood plates. Its heaven on a plate. I always get the blackened tuna caesar wrap. I dream all day about it. Phenomenal. My husband has gotten the scallop roll and loved it, the have izzi soda to... More

went to see the fishing boats come in...As i am on a walker, access was very limited. To get close you have to go down a flight, then back up another flight, but i got a glimpse from the opposite side worth seeing...

I didn't eat here, as I was there at the wrong time of day, but several friends did and enjoyed it. The pier itself is a great stop, particularly with kids. You can watch fishing boats offloading, seals playing, etc.

The fantastic reviews we've read about the Chatham Pier Fish Market do the seafood fry here no justice. Expect crisp, hot, fresh-fried catch-of-the-day paired with a healthy serving of fries. The fish market is especially generous with its fisherman's basket, which came with larger-than-expected portions of clams, scallops, fish and shrimps. Go for this if at a loss on what... More

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
