My husband and I had dinner there on Friday March 14, it's a small place but very popular, it was packed before 6pm. Reservations are recommended by the way. I had the cheese pizza which was thin, crisp and not heavy at all, delicious. My husband had the herb crusted chicken, a bowl of clam chowder and we spit a... More

We made reservations for our first and only visit (so far) to this restaurant for New Year's Eve. Interesting menu, very well done. A bit pricier than I expected, but well worth it! We tried to go back another evening, but it was packed and reservations were needed.

Taste and presentation galore! Big city atmosphere in quaint little Chatham! Do yourself a favor and order the filet mignon.

Being in the business, we giggled when we were told we needed a reservation at 6pm on a Tuesday night in chatham! Yes, indeed we did! The atmosphere was very cool and inviting. The waitress was helpful. The manager (I assume) was all over helping everyone. The food was amazing and was a fabulous night out!

Del Mar has the perfect combination of food, great service, a buzzworthy bar scene and good people watching. Food ranges from thin crust pizza with imaginative toppings to locally caught seafood. Calamari appetizer is a family favorite. Wine selection complements food choices nicely.

We were talked into to coming to this restaurant by the Innkeeper we were staying with. He said it was "not to be missed". While we were intrigued, we have heard that line more than once in our lives, but thought, okay we will give it a try... Del Mar does not disappoint - the restaurant is seriously designed to...

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
