Back Again for a Very Good Dinner

We live in town and go to Vining's several times a year. The food is consistently good and there is some variety in addition to the "standard fare". A bit on the pricy side but all-in-all makes for a nice evening.

If Bistro on Main is the same kitchen/owner as Vining's, kudos to them for a great place. Both slightly less obvious to find (formerly upstairs, now a short walk off the main sidewalk). Excellent meal. Attentive service. Fresh and inventive. We'll certainly be back. Adults and teens (are they adults, too?) sampled widely and were not disappointed.

We were looking at the menu when a couple came out and said we must visit . Unfortunately we only thought the food was average . My chicken could have been hotter but as our waiter did not come back to ask how how our meal was I ate it . Other guests were asked how they were enjoying their... More

Our B&B recommended the Bistro on Main after we were unable to get in to one of the currently popular restaurants in Chatham. Bottom line is that we never looked back. It was hard to imagine that there would be any other restaurant in town as good as this one. After two dinners here we (out of some sense of... More

During recent stay had the recommendation from our Innkeeper to try this restaurant and wasn't disappointed. Food was delicious and staff was very attentive, food was a bit overpriced but not atrociously so. There was also a great outdoor patio that would have been lovely to sit outside had it been a bit warmer. Would recommend to try.

We have been here twice in a month..once for apps and one for dinner. First reservations are not hard to make..do it!! The food/menu is very creative! Something for all. Highlight for myself was a swordfish special at 7pm and the fish came off the boat at 3pm.!! Nice variety if you have a group that like a bunch of... More

Service was excellent food was really good. the cucumber dill soup was a surprise and was excellent. We ate on the patio outside and enjoyed our lunch. Chatham is a very nice place to spend some time.

We have been going to Vinings for years but just discover its new location. (Went to Alaska last summer.). We are pleased for the chef as this location attracts much more walk-in business. The food has been consistently good over the years and remains so. We both had excellent fish that had been caught that day with well prepared vegetables.... More

The food here is just amazing. A bit pricey, but expected for the location. Some of the best flavor combinations and inventive dishes. We've only been here once, but hope to go back soon.

We vacation on the Cape several times a year and a dinner out at Vining's Bistro is at the top of my favorite things to do every time! The food is interesting and different yet has old standbys that I love as well. The owner and staff is friendly and reliable. I love catching a BoSox game in the bar... More
