The kitchen and bar are excellent. We've been going to this restaurant as a highlight of our Chatham vacations for 10 years or more. When our child was young, the maitre d' used to say before seating us, "We don't have a children's menu," to which we answered, "Our child eats real food." Now there is a children's menu. Now...

We have walked by every summer but this time we ventured in and it was such a great hidden gem. I had the scallops with risotto and while a bit pricey for 4 scallops it was delicious. Server was very attentive and the ambiance is lovely - outdoor seating. Will come back again.

Nice place close to main st. But yet so far. It is hidden behind other stores with a beautiful al fresco setting. Although great, but a little high on price.

We've walked by the little walkway/alley entrance to this restaurant so many times, but finally took the time to figure out where the dining area was, and how to get seated! It's tucked away just off of Main Street and hard to see or find, but WOW, what a great lunch we had! My husband and I loved our sandwiches:... More

Tucked away in a comfortable courtyard just off the main drag in the pretty center of busy little Chatham is wonderful (mostly) seafood restaurant. The service is efficient and pleasant and the food was excellent. The specials were wonderful, if slightly expensive. The wine list is not huge but fine. We started with very good, fresh mussels and thick creamy... More

My wife and I had a fabulous dinner. The clam chowder was as good as I have ever had. For dinner I had the lobster ravioli...spectacular! My wife had a Caesar salad, and salmon and she loved her meal as well. In fact our dinner was so good, we went back the next day for lunch!

We had a nice lunch outdoors. The lobster was tasty. The shrimp was extremely overpriced, three medium-size shrimp that appeared thawed for $16. Otherwise reasonable lunch bet.

A famous restauranteur once told me to look for three things in a successful restaurant: 1. The owner in attendance, 2. recommendations by the staff on what to order and what to avoid, 3. a line to get in. For our family, The Blue Coral nailed all three. First, for both our meals, first dinner, then lunch the following day,... More

From the moment we walked up to the hostess station until we paid the bill, our experience was great! The bartenders were awesome! Friendly, helpful, accommodating....pleasant to the eyes! Our food service and meals were very good. All in all just a great time.

My husband and I had a wonderful seafood dinner and great drinks at The Blue Coral! It's outdoor setting was wonderful for a beautiful evening. It's a little hidden, behind some of the stores on Main Street and had great background music. We also had such a friendly waitress who worked here during her summer break from the University of...
