Excellent seafood. Sometimes the line is long but it moves fast and oh worth the wait. It is always fun to stop here.

As a regular to the New England states I've had countless clam chowders, but this one was definitely the best EVER! Very good lobster sandwich, too. Watching the seals while waiting for your order is a bonus.

I have been going here every year for at least 20 years. This is the perfect spot to watch the fisherman come in with their catch of the day and see what they do day in and day out. There are always plenty of wildlife such as seals and birds that you can also watch, and just the perfect view... More

The Chatham Pier Fish Market is a great place for excellent take out. Shrimp or lobster rolls are outstanding! All menu items are freshly prepared and are delicious!

I have been purchasing seafood from Chatham Pier when I'm back on Cape ever since Captain Elmer's in Orleans closed down. While it's pricer than I'd want (and to be honest marketed towards tourists like many/most other establishments on the Cape) it's still very high-quality, incredibly fresh seafood (albeit at a premium).

The return of the fishing boats with seals swimming around looking for fish. A fantastic experience in this nice port.

As a regular to the New England states I´ve had my share of clam chowder, many times sadly just a mediocre experience. Not so at Chatham Fish Market! This was by far the best I ever had the pleasure to taste. Very good lobster sandwich, too. Watching the harbour seals while waiting for your order was a bonus and made... More

We had one of the best fish sandwiches of any place we have eaten. The fish was flaky and had a sweetness to it. The freshest fish sandwich. Mmmmm. It was fried perfectly with a light breading. The roll was fresh too. It came with all the fixings, French fries and cole slaw. It was fun sitting outside watching the... More

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
