Pricey but worth it.

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

My wife and I came here for our Valentine's dinner......the food was out standing but the service left much to be desired it seemed like we were bothering the waitress to even be there. Not once were we ever asked if we needed anything or how our meal was. Again the food was wonderful but the service being as bad... More

One of the prettiest places in Chatham like an English pub. Great place for a lunch date w/ friends and excellent menu choices. Always enjoy whatever i order and find the portions very generous. Beautiful food presentation.

We ate here on a Thursday night in February-I think the outside temp was like 15 degrees. Needless to say, the restaurant wasn't busy when we arrived. In fact, for most of our meal, we were the only people in the restaurant. I had the scallops wrapped in bacon, I don't even like scallops and I scarfed the down! My... More

This is a must visit in Chatham.....As a local a favorite for lunch. The turkey sandwich is the "Real" thing. Moist and roasted on the premises. Highly recommend all their soups.....not overly flavored with excessive salt. During cold weather for Thursday lunch (closed on Tuesday And Wednesday) be sure to wear your warmies!
