Superb quality seafood

We only purchased fish at this iconic Chatham location. It's flapping fresh and tastes it too! Try the swordfish if they have it.

First time last year, then i went twice on this year's trip.....won't ever go back... The food was just fine.....but the second time I went in there, the girl behind the counter was rude and unhelpful to me. At a tourist destination like the Cape --- there is no excuse for that -- and there are hundreds of other places... More

Many options. Prepared meals and sides as a meal or complement to fresh seafood. Cooked and cracked lobsters. Steamed shrimp. Great desserts. Gluten free options. Eat in or take out. Ample parking. Best to order by phone on a busy weekend. Go to spot for informal meals in Chatham

Ordered two items to be picked up. After standing around for 30 minutes was told that my order was given to someone else.. The fryers were now turned off, so I was offered a sandwich or to come back the next day. Reallly? Took my refund instead...

Was so happy to find one of our favourite places to eat open ,and serving fish and chips that could be eaten safely by those who have to eat gluten free . The fish was the freshest possible and the chips crispy and dry . Service was so friendly and welcoming , could not fault anything about the place .... More

If you are not going here to get your fish in Chatham then you might as well be off destroying habitable planets with unsuspecting populations. Today was not unique, but find out when the day boats go out and buy when they return. Tonight we had the best swordfish ever. Swordfish can be tough, but that which we picked up... More

Got the Lobster Roll and it was amazing!! Simple and delicious. My mother got a fish dinner and LOVED it. When we left I bought clams to take home (four hours away) and they packed them perfectly for me. We didn't even need to buy a cooler. Excellent food, excellent service. The next time I'm down I'll definitely be back.... More

I have been buying fresh seafood here for years and feel there is no better store in this area. Not long ago, they added amazingly fresh Chatham oysters. The other day, I picked up some stuffed quahogs made in house by Peter, a fisherman and employee. Wow! Gourmet restaurant flavor and generous portions for under $3 each. IMHO, a top... More

I am very sad to report that this place no longer serves fried seafood. I can't imaging why a restaurant that is attached to a fish market turned itself into a sandwich shop and a market.

We stop here each year for lobster, crab dip, scallops, etc. and are never disappointed. Everything is always fresh and very good. I've never eaten on the cafe side, only purchase fish/shellfish to cook at home. Always look forward to this experience.
