Our innkeeper recommended the Del Mar and we were not disappointed. We sat in the attached tent area under fairy lights that were strung along the ceiling. The filet and salmon were delicious and the wait staff were very attentive. A good restaurant for a special occasion!

We visited the Del Mar on our last evening and wished we'd been before! The restaurant was quite full and we sat in the covered outside area. The food was very tasty! My polenta starter was delicious and our fish entrees very good! Drinks and sweet were also good!

I always try and eat at Del Mar when I visit the cape at least once each summer. I was able to make a reservation for Labor Day weekend and took some family members for dinner. Outstanding seafood, great appetizers and friendly staff. The only drawback was that our table was near the entrance and little hectic but the meal... More

Came for a late dinner without a reservation. We were fortunate not to wait 30/45 min as a table became available. We shared drinks at the bar, which were all very good. I remember a fairly extensive cocktail menu with a decent amount of wines by the glass. The atmosphere at the restaurant is very laid back and relaxed with... More

Extremely popular place; we couldn't get reservations, even through our B&B. However, we took the suggestion, showed up, and got in. We both had a very enjoyable meal; fish dishes. They had live entertainment for a little background music which put icing on the bluberry pie.

Always a solid choice in Chatham. Great thin crust pizza--a must try. Bibb salad was outstanding. Filet was cooked perfectly and a generous portion. Halibut was delicious, but a bit overcooked. Our server, Joni, was attentive but not necessarily friendly. In general, the service here is very good. Call WELL IN ADVANCE for a reservation in the summer---or, expect to... More

We came over for dinner with another couple. We made a reservation so we were sitted right away. Service was great, drinks were very good. We all tried each other's dishes and all of them were good but my duck was something special! Definitely will be back next summer.

This was our fourth or fifth visit to this restaurant. Every time we have found the service to be outstanding thereby adding to the enjoyment of the evening. This last visit I had the pumpkin ravioli as a meal and squash blossom appetizer. Wonderful flavor sand textures. Husband had the petit fillet cooked to perfection. The asparagus was cooked perfectly,... More

Went to dinner with my boyfriend. There was an hour and a half wait, so we gave our name and went down the street to the Red Nun and had a drink. Came back to Del Mar about an hour and 15 minutes later and were seated right away. The room was crowded, but still very pleasant. White lights adorn... More

Went to Del Mar last night on a whim as it was our last night on the cape and we didn't have much left in the house for dinner. We are a family of 5 with three kids ages 12, 11 and 4. We had to wait about 45 minutes for a table but that's because it was Friday night... More
