“Great food and atmosphere in Chatham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We recently decided to travel to Chatham for dinner and a movie and tried Del Mar for the first time.
We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised with the ambiance, the service and the food. The appetizers were wonderful (Japanese pumpkin raviolis, yum) and the menu offerings were inventive and varied for all tastes. The bar was very lovely and dining at the bar looked wonderful. We'll go back again soon.

“Always a hit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

As summer locals we have always patronized this establishment. Been one of our favs for years. Happy to see that they are thriving even in the off season. We continue to send friends and they have nothing but rave reviews. Great food, friendly service and pleasant atmosphere.
Glad they have begun to accept reservations. Make them in advance this place is busy every night.

“Went for drinks only”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

This restaurant was the closest to our rental house (.4 miles) so we walked here one night after dinner. We had drinks on the patio while a jazz band played. It was very pleasant and lively. The food smelled great and I'm sorry we did not make it back there for a meal.

“Keeps getting better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

We always have a few dinners at Del Mar each summer and I have to say that each year they seem to get a bit better. It's always been a very good, lively place with a good range of food on the menu and a very competent wait staff. But this year it seems even better, although the prices are creeping into quite an expensive range. However, you can still find some less expensive items if you are bringing the whole family. It is quite noisy in the main room and a bit less noisy under the tent. We've never gone wrong with any of our food selections, although a couple of additional vegetarian options would be welcome. It gets very busy, so try going early if you don't want to wait long.
