This restaurant is hidden away, but worth it. Bring a sweater because all of the seating is outside, under a canopy of trees...very pleasant, but can get chilly on a typical Chatham evening. Enjoyed our drinks, chowder and fish dishes. We will definitely be back. Service was a bit slow and it was hard to track down our waitress, at... More

Ran across this restaurant by accident and certainly thankful for that. The restaurant is set back from the sidewalk/road, however the hostess is right out front. The seating area is wonderful, under a canopy of trees. The food was really good. Not too heavy. A good meal for a day of shopping. They also have a nice bar area if... More

We expected because this space was tucked away it may be really good! The spinach salad was great but the lobster roll tasted burnt from the bun that was grilled to long. It should have never left the kitchen! Wine selection not that great but they have many other drinks.

Went here for a quick lunch while shopping in Chatham, the food came quickly, it was delicious & fresh and the staff were friendly and attentive. The patio was great with the nice weather, I'd recommend it for sure.

Considering Blue Coral is in the heart of Chatham Village tucked behind stores and abut the Chatham Squire parking lot, it was disappointing. The 3 of us had lunch there and the lunch ,menu and the dinner did not differ. It wasn't so much the plastic chairs, tables and plates, but also the very expensive mediocre food! Lobster roll of...

I went there with friends and ordered mixed frozen drinks and lunch. Right after we finished our drinks we became horribly ill, sweating, dizzy and vomiting. I asked what the common ingredient was in each drink and the waitress told me ice. Well, I never saw the manager after asking to speak with him. Furthermore, the cost of this adventure... More

Our favorite place in downtown Chatham. Yeah okay as some have said, a little pricey but the food is quite good and it's a nice setting - quiet, back patio. Waitresses are very pleasant and service times are appropriate for your orders. Great on a sunny day. Limited kid selections but they do offer the basics.

My husband and I accidentally found this place one afternoon while biking through town. We stopped in for a drink and fell in love with the outdoor (almost Caribbean like) atmosphere. We chatted with the bartender who was very nice! We decided we would go back for dinner with some friends. A few nights later we went back and we... More

This place is great for lunch - relaxed alfresco dining, tucked away behind Main Street - worth searching out. High quality seafood such as top notch crab cakes and the like.

We were walking around Chatham on a beautiful day, and its outdoor seating was perfect for lunch. The food isn't cheap but if you set the price aside, it's good. The lobster roll and the crab cake sandwich were both good, with a generous supply of the shellfish, nicely prepared (not much added to the lobster meat). So maybe their... More
