Let me say that I've never forgotten the Impudent Oyster and when I walked in after a 17 year absence I was delighted to see how little it had changed and how great a place it still was. A warm and welcoming atmosphere, terrific service, an eclectic and fun menu, and delicious food all add up to a must-stop for... More

We dined here this week after a long unplanned absence. The menu hasn't changed much, if at all, but always has wonderful selections. There are several MUST ORDER items when dining here: butternut squash bisque, clam chowder and home made potato chips. You will fall in love! The fish sandwich and tacos tasted like the fish just came off the... More

I've had lobster rolls in several seafood restaurants but the lobster roll served at the Impudent Oyster is by far and above the best I've ever eaten! Basically, this roll consists of big chunks of lobster and more lobster with the only smallest amount of mayonnaise to bind the lobster together. The chopped celery and onion added just the right...

Had dinner the other evening with another couple visiting is in Chatham. Impudent Oyster always good and the specials this evening were very good. Service always top notch. My only issue with the Oyster is the food portions are so large. This may not be an issue with some, but hard to finish the meal.

We've eaten at the Oyster for close to 30 years, where the duck preparation was always a great option. However, for the last couple of visits, there was no duck on the menu. While the options for dinner are still extensive and there are plenty of specials, we consider the duck a signature dish and can't figure out why the... More

We stopped in for lunch after a trip to Wellfleet. The restaurant was crowded but we were able to get a table. Having dined her many times in the past, we were excited to be back. We shared an appetizer, fried calamari over field greens with fried jalapeño pepper slices. This dish was outstanding! I ordered a lobster roll and... More

We ate here years ago and were delighted to find the food as good as we remembered! Lovely, elegant setting with a fresh, interesting menu. Not cheap, but worth it.

Went for lunch the day after Thanksgiving with my sister and brother-in-law. Had a fried scallop sandwich with bacon and mozzarella cheese on a ciabatta bun. Excellently prepared and tasted very good. Got there early enough that we didn't have to wait for a table but the place filled up fast shortly thereafter. Service was very good and we were... More
