Decided to try this restaurant at my uncles suggestion. Glad we did. My husband and I had their signature Bloody Mary. Very spicy but that's the way we enjoy them. I ordered their fried scallop Cobb salad and my husband ordered their Thai peanut noodle dish. They were both huge plates of food....should have split one! My salad was incredible.... More

The Impudent Oyster is our go to restaurant on the Cape. When ever we have guests or family at our Centerville home we make the trip to Chatham. For lunch or dinner the Impudent Oyster is one of the best on the Cape. From their fresh seafood dishes to the beef plates its a can't miss. Great soups also. Nice... More

The food is delicious, but it is a little noisy. Be sure to order the Devils on Horseback! Reservations are a must in the summer. We had an early dinner on a Friday in August and then walked to the bandstand for the evening concert.

Well it kind of goes without saying this is the BEST restaurant in the area! I have never had a bad meal here! My husband and I dine alone so we enjoy sitting at the bar and dinning so we can have conversation with other patrons. Leo, the bartender is always kind and friendly and make you feel like family....

My wife and I come here every trip to the Cape and the food and the service is always wonderful. The service staff is always on their game and we never find ourselves waiting for little things such as bread, low water glasses, or any request we have. I honestly could not decide what to order off the menu and... More
