We enjoyed an OK dinner at Del Mar, however, the dining room ( covered but outdoors) was noisy and a bit chaotic. Dining tables and chairs were surprisingly casual for the price point of the menu items. The sun was uncomfortably blinding for most of our dinner with no way to shade us. Our dinner items were average. Lots of... More

Each time I eat at the Del Mar it is always an enjoyable evening! The drinks are well made - not too weak, not too strong - but always complimenting the meal! The calamari is a great appetizer to begin the meal. I prefer the white fish specials but the Portuguese Steamed Littlenecks is also a great choice! The pizza... More

I've had a few meals at Del Mar in the past and have had very good service and food. Tonight it was like a different place all together. The service was not even reasonable, no explanation of menu choices, had to ask hostess to get waitress twice. She did not pour wine, just placed bottle and glasses on the table.... More

The Del Mar was recommended to us for dinner. Overall, the restaurant looks very nice and the atmosphere is great. The food was average and the room was very cold. My feet were freezing. We were very disappointed.

A regular dining spot for us while visiting Chatham. The menu is varied and has blackboard specials each night. This night we had pumpkin ravioli ,terrific and their great half roasted duck. If you go stop at the cook station and say hello to Maria, the head chef.

It was a long Wednesday, and we were tired and needed something to eat. Del Mar had been on of those places "we gotta go there some time." Well, we did and were pleasantly surprised on all counts. It was maybe 6:00, and we were seated immediately in the sparsely populated dining area that runs the front length of the... More

Great food and reliable service. Would love to see expanded selection of entrees and creative specials. This restaurant still ranks among my local top spots.

Lovely meal, we'd eat here again. While the entire meal was wonderful, let me spend a few minutes extolling on the excellent preparation of the vegetables. They were perfect.....yes prefect in every way. Broccoli Rabe was cooked to perfection....not too raw, not soggy, but just perfect! So rare in restaurants these days. The rest of the meal was great, but... More

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
