Best place for lunch and a cocktail while staying at Wequassett

My girlfriend and I just got back from a lovely 4-day stay at Wequassett. We ate lunch at Outer Bar Saturday-Monday and overall found it to be really good. Although, if you aren't staying at the resort, you'd probably be better off going to Chatham for lunch. The prices were on the high side for... read more

Located at the Wequassett Inn in Chatham MA on cape cod, this beachside gazebo is the coolest place to hang. Great drinks and the best view. Located right on the harbor in the bay, but also situated centrally at the hotel's expansive pool and cabana complex. The food menu is also creative and very well done.

My wife and I went to the Outer Bar &Grill for a lunch around 2 PM on 9/27/14. We have been there before and the views are beautiful. However, on this day the food was sub-par. We ordered calamari and it appeared that this was the last of the batch, being comprised mostly of batter and scrapes. Our two sandwiches... More

Located at the luxe Wequassett resort, the Outer Bar & Grill offers very casual dining on an elevated deck overlooking the beautiful bay. Delicious fried scallop roll had a spicy Asian twist. Shrimp salad in lettuce cups had a delicate melding of sublime flavors. Gazpacho was a perfect balance of heat and cool. Unfortunately the brownie dessert was a failure... More

I recently went to Outer Bar and Grill with two girlfriends for lunch to celebrate special occasions. We would have liked to sit down below, closer to the water, but that is reserved for guests staying at the Wequassett Resort. I can totally understand that and they do open up the area after 4:30. We were told seating in the... More

This is a beautiful property. We had fish tacos and lobster rolls. The lobster roll was all lobster and not just a ton of filler. We also had clam chowder that was loaded with clams rather than potatoes which was also nice. Restaurant overlooks the water. The lower level is for hotel guests only, but I think they let others...

I completely understand that Cape Cod establishments have an issue with seasonal help. For what the Wequassett charges, they should be able to hire the creme de la creme. Started out with our party of 5 sitting at the bar, yet unable to get the bartender's attention as he was too busy trying to woo 2 women at the bar.... More

What a day. It started with a panoramic view, kissed with sunshine, of Pleasant Bay. Then we moved into refreshing alcoholic beverages. Kissed with berry and ruby red grapefruit. YUM! The lobster rolls, fish tacos and scallops were first quality..sweet and perfectly cooked. Do not miss this bit of Cape Cod.
