Great atmosphere and staff

I called ahead to ask if they take large groups of people as we were on a family vacation and unfamiliar with the location. Because it is a smaller establishment they try to keep it a first come, first serve basis (understandably). I can't say enough about how pleasant and accommodating the staff... read more

New Owners took over and I figured I would give it a shot. Went in for lunch today and it was amazing. Wide variety of food from seafood to sandwiches, cool mason jars for glasses, and super friendly staff. Allie was on the bar and couldn't have been nicer. Food was sooo good between my philly sandwich and the homemade... More

Beware - this restaurant is under new ownership and the food and service is not what it was except they kept the name of the restaurant. We had eaten at this eatery many times in the past and always looked forward to a good lunch, but no more. Lunch began with iced tea that was watered down. Our one lunch... More

On the day we arrived in Chatham for vacation, we were hungry for lunch. We have often passed the Lazy Lobster but never tried it. This time we did and what a tremendous decision it was. We began with truly one of the best Bloody Mary's we've ever had. The lunch that followed was wonderful. Sandwiches made from fresh fish...in... More

We waited patiently for the Lazy Lobster to reopen under its new ownership. We considered it (note the tense) our neighborhood place for breakfast. Well, it's off the list. Because we were regulars, we were more than aware that this was opening weekend but expected that our experience would be at least satisfactory since the new owners describe themselves as... More

We've had many great breakfasts here. All the food is prepared to your order. Try the french toast, the omelets or the eggs benedict. They are top notch. It's a small space so be prepared to wait to be seated, but it is well worth the wait. The service is prompt and the servers are very friendly. Once you're seated... More

We love The Lazy Lobster! The breakfasts are delicious --try the trail pancakes with bananas and granola --I always add blueberries as well. The egg dishes are outstanding and the owners are amazing --the best couple ever and I look forward to seeing them and giving them a big hug at the start of every summer --they work so hard... More

I'm sure that the Lazy Lobster is as good as everyone says, but when we tried to have lunch there on October 15, the phone recording said that it was closed until the spring.
