We had the best fried clam strips that we have ever had at the Fish Market. The lobster bisque was also excellent. It was also fun to watch the seals cluster around returning fishing boats to eat whatever the fishermen fed to the seals. A real experience!

After spending time at the pier watching fishing boats unload their fresh catch and observing the seals playing in the immediate area, it was time for a bite to eat and to sample some fresh seafood. Our orders consisted of a lobster roll and scallop roll plates. Both were cooked to perfection and were definitely delicious. While there is no... More

While visiting Cape Cod, I decided to visit to get a fresh cooked to order lobster and chowder. After receiving my order I asked about butter for the lobster. I was told that they sell butter by the stick and they'll melt it for free. This should be mentioned at the time of ordering - my lobster was Luke warm... More

If you're ever in Chatham and want to see something special, go to the fish pier on Barcliff Avenue. The fishing boats unload their catches into huge bins to be packed away on ice and off to market. Ordinarily you can't get too close to this activity, except here in Chatham. For years there has been a big, wide observation... More

Stopped here to watch the Seals and sample the takeout after walking around Chatham. Thought the food was very fresh, tasty and plentiful. Could have done with some more outdoor seating - day we were there all the seats were taken so we had on the wall around the back and between $4 we ended up spending around $70 but... More

I'm talking FRESH! Not 3 days old, not two days old but right off the boats (you can see the boats being unloaded)... what kind of fish do you like... it's there! Nothing fancy and they don't need to be fancy... very friendly and helpful staff, truly fine cooks and the finest ingredients... what more do you need! The chowder...... More

Very nice, fresh faith and chips from the pier at Chatham. Fish and chips were the most ordinary of meals to get there, oysters, lobster and the rest available. Chi chi prices........great views.

Great fun watching the fishermen bring in their catch and the fresh seafood can't be beat. We ate the lobster rolls right there at the picnic tables.

Great atmosphere of a seafood shack on a pier but there should of been more seating. Seemed to be trying to be more than they are. Not really a restaurant. Lobster Roll - actually a lobster salad roll which I'm not a fan of; to much bread and I could of used no paprika. Clam chowder - little thin; good... More
