There are so many yummy and fun places to eat in Chatham and this just isn't one of them. The food is boring and the atmosphere is nondescript. The location is great, but I would much more highly recommend The Squire, Del Mar, Blue Fins, the Bistro.... The list goes on and on.

The food was unacceptable: tasteless bisque, lobster casserole with cream sauce was soupy - less than adequate lobster for the price. Decent outdoor patio and friendly service.

My wife and I have been coming here for 5 years now with our 3 kids and every time we go it keeps getting better. It has a small dinning room and cozy patio, so it took a minute for us to be seated. The quick service, delicious food and friendly staff, made it well worth the wait. I had... More

Every year, we have more meals at this excellent eatery. It's our traditional first night on the Cape place. It's our traditional last breakfast out place. Lovely wait staff. Excellent food. Low key seating indoors and out. It's the kind of place one hesitates to recommend lest others inundate it and yet, one wants the gracious owner to have more... More

Not very accommodating. I walked in to get a coffee and egg sandwich to go. The waitress said no problem but when I told the manager at the bar that I wanted to order she said she couldn't help me because they just stopped serving breakfast and that I couldn't get anything till noon?? Wow, what customer service!

We went for lunch on the recommendation of friends and weren't disappointed. We had the clam chowder and it was delicious! Caesar salad, chicken fingers, and french fries (regular and covered with cheese and bacon!) were all good. The only thing I was unhappy with was the lobster roll. It was delicious but for $16.95, there should have been ALOT... More

The service was great and the food was delish! Reasonably priced and large portions. We sat outside on the patio which was pretty quiet considering our table was closest to the sidewalk.

Had delicious broiled scallops for dinner on the outside patio. If it's a hot day I recommend eating outside as the interior was quite warm.
