Best Lobster Salad!

We stopped here on a recommendation. It seems to be a great place to bring families as well. Note: it is in the center of Chatham and does not have its own parking. You need to find a spot either on-street or in one of the few public lots and walk a short distance. I had a lunch special which... read more

Our hotel recommended this place but our group of 4 cannot understand why. We assume the hotel is getting paid to direct their guests here. We had an appetizer plate which included an oyster, a mussel and a shrimp. Very average -- you would never know you were in New England. Given the fact that a good portion of the... More

Decided to try out the Chatham Squire for lunch after a friend from Barnstable recommended it for its Raw Oysters! I was very happy with the meal. We ordered the lobster bisque off the lunch menu, which was very tasty and had a good amount of lobster in it! We also ordered a dozen raw oysters, which were very yummy... More

Nice staff but poor food, didn't taste freshly made, rather it seemed things had been pulled out of the freezer then reheated in a microwave. You'd probably be ok with the fried food but I wouldn't rate anything else.

The Squire is the best bar scene on the Cape that's not directly on the beach. It's got a great crowd - from kings to carpenters and baby's to 80+ years old moving noticeably younger as the night wears on. Food on the bar side is simple and good. On the "dinner" side more upscale, reasonably priced and serviceable. All... More

I was here with friends to grab a quick bite to eat. The clam Chowder was good. The oysters and shrimp were good as well. Seemed like a local hang out at least at the tavern side.

4 of us stopped in for a light dinner as we had eaten all day long. Highly recommended by locals. Clam chowder was good, side salads plentiful but lobster bisque "took the cake". Travel mate said the pomegranate martini was wonderful.
