Delicious Seafood

We had dinner at the Impudent Oyster last Saturday night. The service was terrific, the place was hopping, and the food was phenomenal. We started with apps, including the bacon wrapped scallops, which were delicious. We all tried different entrees ands passed then around. You can't go... read more

We ate here earlier in the year and came back but were disappointed this time. The service was pretty slow. We ordered a side salad and were charged $9 which seems pretty steep for a small bowl of greens and a few carrot shreds. My husband's French Dip sandwich was cold in the middle. Probably won't return again.

We came in for lunch June 2014 and were not disappointed. It's an interesting set-up, reminds me of a converted church. On a side-street from the hub-bub. Very, very good.

We prefer lunch just because the prices are better but anytime the food is delicious. Their Kale Salad with Salmon is always my favorite healthy back up however everything on the menu from the scallops, lobster roll (mostly large pieces of lobster with light dressing), tender mussels with flavorful white wine sauce that you need lots of bread, their homemade...

Eat here regularly. Portions and quality as well as wide selection will appeal to almost any diner. Wide open upper dining area feels less like a cafeteria and more like a gathering of family and friends. Lunch prices are a bit better than dinner.

We go there at least twice a month. The food and staff are excellent. I get salad Lucy or one of the specials, my wife gets French dip or a shrimp or salad dish. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu as everything is wonderful.

Located in the quaint downtown of Chatham , this little spot is a perfect night out! It's small rustic dining room makes it a perfect atmosphere to enjoy the amazing food! Everything was cooked to perfection. Although entrees are a bit pricey the food was certainly worth it!

Very good menu...I could have eaten almost anything they had on the menu! I finally settled on the Thai fishermans stew which had rice noodle, lobster, scallops, clams, mussels, white fish (cod I think) and salmon. There was a very flavorful broth as well. It really was enough for two for lunch. My husband had the fish tacos which were... More
