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

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
