Loved It!!!

Went with another couple. We had the tuna, the lobster, the steak and one other entree none of us can remember (yes, cocktails were involved so we've forgotten a few minor details). All of us loved our food A LOT. We sampled each other's food and all agreed that every dish was excellent. We are... read more

Very fresh and imaginative seafood dishes, and wonderful hot loaf of bread with each dinner. We always love the mussels in whatever fashion they come!! Everything is delicious!

For that special dinner...this is exceptional. Fresh everything, cooked to perfection. Raw bar, fish , steaks and a bouillabaisse that is second to none. Oh yes, and a very well made martini!

Great place to stop for lunch if you are in Chatham! Great raw oysters, and lots of fresh seafood items. Nice location to take a break from browsing the shops!

An established and popular Chatham rendezvous for lunch and dinner. The menu is full of offerings unique to Impudent Oyster. Occassionally we find a dish that is over the top in complexity but that's much preferred over the run of the mill offerings of most places. Very able waitstaff, our favorite is Jenny-but all are competent, attentive and helpful. My... More

This restaurant never disappoints. The seafood is fresh, entrees are huge and everything is delicious. Good for lunch or dinner. One of our favorite restaurants on the Cape, and our favorite in Chatham. We make sure to eat there are least once on every visit.

Recommended by concierge at Chatham Bars Inn as one of the better restaurants in Chatham. Really good atmosphere with friendly and attentive staff. Mrs E loved her gambas ajioli. She asked for some bread to soak up the amazing garlic chilli sauce and was presented with an entire loaf of lovely warm brown bread. Great stuff but didn't leave much... More

My husband and I had our first date at the Impudent Oyster. Every year we go back on our anniversary. The food is just as good as it was thirteen years ago. We even see some of the same wait staff from year to year. Our meal this year was amazing. The oysters were so good! Looking forward to next... More

Enjoyed dinner here with a friend on a Friday evening. We got there at 5:30 and were seated -- and told we had about an hour before the people with reservations would need the space. Service was prompt, and the food served was very good. We both opted for seafood, given that we had come to the Cape and all.... More
