As we are visitors, we did not know that you can only order the lobster for take out. They have a restaurant area for fish and chips etc. but you cannot eat lobster there. We were trying to ask some questions about take-out options, and the staff was very rude.

After looking at reviews we went to this place and ordered 2 lobster rolls and a small portion of onion rings. The total was $58, I was expecting the lobster boat to be included at this price. Still the roll would be a 12" job with lobsters fighting to get out, Wrong. It was a 5/6" roll with a portion... More

This is a casual fish market with a small place to eat-in if you want to sit down. They definitely have fresh products. The lobster roll was all lobster meat with almost no fillers. I wouldn't have known that their fried shrimp was gluten-free if I didn't read it on their menu. It tasted excellent. Most of their products are... More

While the decor may be a bit lacking the food is outstanding. The adjoining fish market is well-stocked. The whole belly clams were very nicely done.

This is an excellent fish market but today was my first time trying the restaurant for take out lobster and clam rolls. All were wonderful....lots of chunky lobster on a well grilled roll. The whole belly clam roll as well as the clam strip roll were fresh and non greasy. Lemon slices and a perfect crunchy cole slaw accompanied them....enjoyed... More

An awkward place to sit down and eat. Your eating inside a fish market. However this is not a reason to pass it up. The food was excelent, the seafood was very fresh. In my opinion, get your meal to go and enjoy it outside or at your hotel room.

We live in Chatham and this is where we go for all of our fresh seafood. Adjoining shop also very good for chowders, salads and fresh breads. Quality, selections and service all first rate.

The food was excellent- lobster roll is all meat and the fish and chips were cooked perfectly. No frills, but no worries you are there for the awesome food.

If you hadn't told me the fried seafood was gluten free, I'd never had guessed. OK - that's *why* we went, but it's always great to get GF that's not an also-ran. A good old paper-napkin seafood joint, since they're a fish market also, the seafood is fresh and tasty. No difference in the off-season, when you might think the... More
