“Some great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Ate hear trying to get out of a very busy Chatham main st, and it's a safe bet for great seafood. order your meals right- lobster corn chowder all corn no lobster. Disappointing...but the fried clam dish was probably the best dish we have ever had! Atmosphere is very hectic, worth the wait!

“Gluten Free Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

On the anniversary of 17 years gluten free, we found this wonderful little restaurant. I loved that almost everything is gluten free AND...they get it so I was comfortable ordering the strip clam basket (fried clams and french fries)...the price was $9.95 and portions were large...it was delicious and such a treat!!! We split onion rings and they were "ok"....I wouldn't order them again ("breading" was falling off the onions but the flavor was good and they were gf so that was good)! We will go back and it's a celiac's dream - the fact that you order at the counter and can eat inside or out is fine and actually on a gorgeous summer night was preferable to being in a formal restaurant....Just GO....celiac or not - my husband can eat gluten and he loved it too!

“Excellent Gluten Free Options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We were staying in Harwich on vacation and were looking for somewhere on the Cape that had fried gluten free options. This place fit the bill...It's not fancy, but it's clean and the fried fish is really good...My husband and I shared a fisherman's platter and there was so much we couldn't finish it. My daughter - also gluten free - had the fried clams and said hers were great too. It seems to be a good market too - bakery items (not gluten free) fresh vegetables and wine too. Nice little market and heavenly that they have gluten free items.

We loved Chatham Fish and Lobster! We picked up several different prepared foods and took them back to our room for a little smorgasbord, delicious!

“Love it, gluten free fried clams!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

they have fresh food and all their fried foods are gluten free- such a treat for us celiacs :)
We come here every summer and I think it has improved from last summer, lighter tasting breading on the fried clams.
