Dinner in Chatham

Have been a few times to this long standing Chatham institution. Steady service, typical vacation style food, nice bar. Be prepared to wait on line.

That early November, post-Halloween dark and chilly evening full of fog and foreboding, the clock had struck 8 when we crossed the threshold of the antique-looking Chatham Squire establishment. Dark wood, dim light, and warmth greeted us, as did the most welcoming waitresses, all spruced up in their well fitted attire. We were escorted to our booth in a cosy... More

We've dined here several times. Unfortunately, this time the experience was less than memorable. The martinis we ordered left a lot to be desired; the Cosmos tasted like fruit punch. 2 of us ordered one of the specials: beef stew listed with "tender chunks of beef simmered with root vegetables in a hearty gravy; served with a side of corn...

While the bar was packed with people watching the Pats vs. the Chiefs, our waitress was busy but attentive. The food was ok, prices were fair but the place felt like it was just for the "locals". And we weren't and I'm sure in the summer its s different story. But in the middle of winter,I figured new business would... More

Fun bar, decent Cape Cod ( serving Fish) pub food. Restaurant and bar is very, very tired interior. My biggest complaint is it smell, especially the restaurant side. I know it’s a Chatham landmark but that’s just unsettling that the smell is not addressed. FYI They have the best Halloween Party on the Cape!

Every time we are on the Cape we will visit the Squire, doesn't matter when in the year you visit the food and atmosphere is great! Getting a seat at the bar and sharing a bowl of fries and clam chowder just makes our vacation for us.

If you're looking for great food, fun atmosphere and awesome service ~ this is the place to be. We were in Chatham for 3 days and had lunch and dinner at the Squire 2 of those days. Came back later one evening to hear great live entertainment. Met some great people and danced the night away! Always a good time... More

Drinks come fast! Kids' food comes fast too. The smoked bluefish was tasty as was the lobster bisque but I have had a better lobster roll. But the friendly staff made up for it, especially when they brought an extra hot dog quickly to replace the one my kid dropped!

Lunch at the bar on the restaurant side is a family tradition for us.. now, we miss Tom's energy and cheery demeanor.. took an eternity to be served, in a lackadaisical manner last week.. food consistently good and fresh...

Found this place during our stay last year so looking forward to visiting again. Place is lively, great to sit at the bar, service is good and plenty of choice of beers. Great menu, all cooked fresh and ample servings. Staff are friendly and helpful, happy to give out information regarding the surrounding area. Great bar.....
