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.

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

Ok, first let me say this place has great fresh seafood. It seems there are 2 operations in this place. One is a seafood fish market which is awesome. You walk in and it just smells fresh. Numerous staff on and pretty good variety of fish. Excellent. The other operation is a restaurant/take out thing. Poor awareness to service,no personality... More

After a long, long hiatus, we finally located an excellent fish restaurant that offers gluten free fried clam strips and they are delicious! Everything on their fried fish menu is gluten free. The fish market and take out were doing a brisk business since the fish and lobster are so fresh and tasty. The friendly and efficient staff had our... More

On Friday afternoon we ordered lobsters cooked to-go for a family dinner in 3 days. While there we bought fresh fish and prepared dishes -- blue fish, swordfish, stuffed quahogs, crab cakes, cole slaw and some condiments - for supper that evening. Everything was delicious. Unfortunately we did not adhere to the instructions to 'pick up your lobsters at 5:30... More

After a relaxing day at the beach, we head to Chatham Fish and Lobster to pick up dinner for the evening. Everything is so fresh! They have a nice variety of fresh fish for you to take home and cook. The smoked bluefish and salmon are like none other. The clam chowder and lobster bisque are amazing. The staff is... More

Busy place! If you don't want to wait for a table to open up, choose take-out. But don't leave without food! Cod Reuben was devoured, blackened swordfish sandwich was incredible. I'm hoping to return for another before I leave the Cape. My husband ordered the Tuna wrap, and although it was very good, had hoped there was more tuna. No... More

I arrived at the Cape on Saturday and headed straight to this restaurant for the gluten-free fried fisherman's platter, which included fish, whole belly clams, scallops, shrimp and fries. The portion was generous and the fish was fried to perfection!! So, several days later, I again ordered the gluten-free platter and it was a big disappointment. The clams were not... More

Friendly, fast and delicious. Lobster rolls are yummy. Son loves the burgers and husband the grilled chicken. So something for all tastes. Like most places in Chatham it is crowded and the summer help is not as friendly as in off season. But understandable.

Yes, gluten-free is all the rage right now but to actually have a sign posted on the door that says "Celiac Friendly" is a first! Not only is their incredibly fresh and delicious Fish and Chips Gluten-Free but they also have several side dishes that are GF too. If you want the absolute best Lobster Roll, this is my suggestion... More
