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

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...
