Really yummy fish tacos and chowder

On route 28 outside downtown, they have cooked as well as a fish market here. The 2 shrimp tacos were very flavorful, with white cabbage and lime sauce. They can be had as one fish taco and one shrimp taco as well. A few inside tables allow for sitting as well as several outdoor picnic tables with... read more

We are from CT and when ever we visit the Chatham are this is our go to spot for fresh seafood! It has a wide assortment of every kind of seafood year round. My favorite is the bay scallops! Wish we could get them year round!

Had the Fish and Chips to go - theres pretty much nothing that can be said about perfect. The fish and batter was perfect, tasted great, nice and light and great flavor. I always add vinegar, salt and lemon, and to me that is the perfect way to eat it! You won't be disappointed.

We've been getting our fresh fish here for years. They have a large selection of very fresh fish and their homemade bread crumbs are the absolute best. If you're flexible ask for a recommendation and they'll tell you what's the best they have at the moment, and they've never tried to sell me the most expensive. If you're sick of... More

Ordered lobster and mussels from here to take home and they were very large and amazing. The two lobsters we ordered fed the 6 of us!

Wow....we have been going to Chatham for years but just rediscovered this gem. Picture this....fish market featuring fish that was just brought in from the pier....take out foods, freshly prepared....I had the fried scallops. Generous portion, very lightly fried, not a bit greasy, unbelievably sweet taste...this is what scallops should taste like. Complemented with a heaping helping of fries and... More

Very good and fairly priced. Very busy on a rainy day. They are straightforward in their presentation, being a fish market and takeout venue. You can order lobsters to be cooked for you and ready at a specific time for pick up. Excellent clam chowder! Limited store hours, however.

Great place to grab a bite. One side is the fresh seafood market and the other side you can order meals. The more food we saw come out of the window, the more we changed our minds! We settled on fried clam strips which were HUGE and TASTY, shrimp cocktail, some fresh salads, AND we had the other side cook... More
