We eat here every summer. It's great to eat outside, if the weather is good. They have a raw bar set up outside. There's usually a very long wait to get seated. They do not take reservations. It's a very casual, kid friendly restaurant. They have good seafood specials. They also have a to go menu. We've ordered cooked lobsters... More

We travel one hour to bring any of our guests who request fried seafood while visiting us on Cape Cod. The fried oysters are a standard appetizer often requiring more for a "meal".All of the shellfish is cooked to perfection, never overdone and the beer battered haddock a favorite for my home brewers.

I've always been impressed with the atmosphere, food and drinks however on my most recent visit I encountered a very rude bartender with a plastic flower in her hair who when asked a simple question related to the restaurant's wine selection, snickered at me. She honestly soured the whole evening for myself and my friends. I likely will not return... More

Went to Chapin's on my birthday for dinner. The food was excellent. I had the fried Cod plate with a cup of clam chowder. Delicious!

We went to Chapin's for dinner. There were 4 adults and two young children. The restaurant was large and busy but we were seated quickly, even though we did not have a reservation. The menu was varied and there were choices for everyone including the kids. Our steaks and seafood came out perfectly prepared. The servers were efficient and friendly... More

We visited Chapin's while staying with a friend on Cape Cod who raved about the restaurant. The raves were well deserved. This popular establishment offers fresh food, meticulously prepared. The staff is friendly and exuberant. I ordered the lobster pot pie and my husband had the hot lobster roll, and as yummy as they sounded, they exceeded expectations. We could... More

We are repeat visitors to Chapin's, because it is a reliable, casual restaurant where you are guaranteed a good meal. The chowder is awesome - and I really enjoy a good cup of chowder. The portions are HUGE; one kids fish and chips meal easily fed my two young children, with plenty left over. We always enjoy the outdoor seating,... More
