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

We had eaten many times at the old Vining Bistro when it was upstairs, and just tried their new incarnation as Bistro on Main. The food was as good as ever. We enjoyed eating outside on their patio and the scallops and grouper were both wonderful.

My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch, sat at the bar so glad we did, because the bartender was very nice and helpful. I ordered a small Caesar salad, and mussels done in white wine, and onions. Wow they were big yet tender. My husband ate his meal and helped finish my mussels since there was more... More

Bistro on Main has an innovative and excellent chef. Tim O'Brien, the chef, is from California and has had extensive experience with many types of cooking and it shows. His menu is packed with flavor and freshness. The jerk chicken appetizer is outstanding! Having lived in Jamaica I can attest that this is the real deal in jerk preparation. Fresh... More

Vining's has recently relocated to new digs in the same commercial comp[lex in Chatham. We live in town and did not particularly like the old place. However, we've been to the new digs a number of times and have had consistently good food and very good service. Prices are a bit on the high side, but not outrageously so.

This is the best place to eat in Chatham, and it has some stiff competition. Outstanding menu, service and wine list. Wish we had found this earlier than our last night!
