Happened to be traveling on the Cape with a business colleague and he suggested we try this place. Having been scarred by the Del Mar in the past, I was very reluctant but acquiesced when he seemed so eager. Wish I had been more outspoken - this was a very disappointing experience. The wait staff was extremely S...L...O...W! I ordered... More

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you did not enjoy your two experiences with us. We appreciate it whenever customers take the time to give us constructive criticism. I must tell you that we cut and weigh all of our fish daily. If we served” three-ounce” pieces of fish that could not satisfy “a five-year old,” we would... More

Great local restaurant, lots of seafood choices. Well thought out menu. Everything tends to be paired & executed extremely well. You will enjoy the dining experience. Good wines as well.

Had a quick visit to Cape Cod and visited this restaurant recommended by a friend. It was a warm welcoming restaurant and we were glad we made reservations. We sat in their summer room which is now covered in plastic and will be eventually closed which will leave very few tables for the winter. The menu is large with lots... More

Del Mar is an excellent choice for up-scale casual dining in Chatham. The diverse menu offers appetizers, salads, fish, and steak. Everything we tried was excellent. We ate on a Saturday night and the restaurant was crowded. I recommend a reservation.

Our Inn Keeper recommended the Del Mar Restaurant and we were not disappointed. We arrived for our reservation and were promptly seated. Our waitress offered us water and took our drink requests. I had a Pomergranate Martini which was delicious and my husband had a wonderful Chardonnay. The appetizers looked fantasic but we had a late lunch so passed. I... More

The ambience alone is enough to go back! Sit out in the enclosed area with the torches, it is just awesome! Then, they put a cozy blanket on one of the chairs at your table just in case you are chilly! What a little, but perfect touch! I was amazed by that! What a neat idea?! The food is outstanding!...

I made a reservation at the Del Mar before we left for our trip based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. I turned out to be Restaurant Week on Cape Cod and I ordered the Restaurant Week special. The clam chowder was delicious - better than the clam chowder we shared at lunch at the Red Lion Inn... More

Superb combination of offerings for the Cape Cod Fall restaurant week; I sat at the bar, the bartender George was prompt, courteous, efficient, gave helpful advice when asked. I had the pan-seared salmon which was terrific - crispy on the skin side, but very moist and beautiful flavor, perfect combination of other items to round out the plate, like a... More

We have enjoyed Del Mar restaurant in Chatham, Ma. For the last 3 years on a regular basis. Even though I hesitate making this restaurant even tougher for which to snag a "Rez" my husband and I manage to get here often. We both think the duck is delicious, but you have to like a sweet, rather than savory preparation... More
