My husband and I were vacationing in the area and chose this restaurant based on the proximity to our cottage and the reviews. I had read somewhere about the lobster quesadillas, so we both ordered them. They were absolutely to die for! We sat outside - the patio was very nice.

The place and waitress were fine but the food although OK was not great. The restaurant advertised wifi but we could not get it to work.

There is something about the sauce for their boneless buffalo wings that are addictive. Sweet and spicy but not too much. I hardly get other things from the menu, but the seafood cakes and burger is pretty good too.

The restaurant area inside is nice, but nothing to get excited about. Then, we made our way through the restaurant to the outdoor seating area just off the bar and it was a completely different experience. There was a wet bar, a raw bar and just a fun atmosphere out there. We were initially just going out there to get... More

This is a jumping local restaurant that serves good food in large portions. Don't expect fancy dining as this is a family place with lots of kids. The noise level was a bit high. Very casual. Come in your shorts and tees.

Chapin's has the typical deep fried fish and seafood fare which is pretty good, but the best part is if you're traveling with young kids, they have a really nice sized yard that the kids can run around and shake their sillies out before, during and after dinner. The bar is pretty comfy and the live music is fun if... More

Always a great meal, whether it's a half pound burger or the melt in your mouth calamari. A complete menu, seafood to steaks delicious chowder and huge desserts.

Chapins is near the beach, its always busy and the food is always good. Has a big menu, something for everyone. Has a great bar list as well. The staff is always excellent. It can get loud during prime time. I had my rehearsal dinner here for my wedding - we wanted beachy, casual, great food and we got it... More

We like that we an walk to this restaurant with my family from our rental for an early dinner. It was quiet for a Sunday. We were disappointed not to find oysters but will go back in July. Service was very good and I enjoyed the lobster roll and my husband's French dip sandwich was amazing. The kids had chicken... More
