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

We had heard about the seafood Ciopini and how great it was at Chapin's. We were not disappointed and would highly recommend this to anyone that loves Fruitti do Mare!!! This will certainly be my choice when I return.

Excellent food, with a large variety of options on the menu. The portions are large. The service staff was very friendly, but it took some time to get our food, probably because the restaurant was so busy. To that point, we had to wait about 45 minutes to get our table on a Friday night in the summer. It is... More

We eat here at least once when we are on the Cape. This restaurant is large and fills up quickly!! The valet parking helps with the line up of cars in the street of those trying to get in! They can accommodate LARGE groups and is VERY kid friendly. The lounge has live entertainment and there is an outdoor Raw... More

Just a wonderful restaurant to bring kids, they have a large area for kids to play around the flag pole. We come hear primarily for the fish and chips and it is always fresh and delicious. Their sandwiches are also good, try the steak sandwich.......nice young servers. Always a joy to visit, personifies the outdoor beach bar!

Not a fast place by any means. Get there before 5 p.m. or you will wait an hour. Doesn't matter what day of the week it is. This is one of the few family restaurants in the area, so it is PACKED to say the least. Food is decent-boneless buffalo wings are fantastic. A little overpriced, but so is everywhere... More

We visit Chapin's with our kids every time we're on the Cape. Waiting for a table is never an issue with the outdoor raw bar and spacious indoor bar. Food and service are always reliable. Cater to families and large groups. Can't say enough good things!!!
