“Chatham Squire-”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is certainly a local spot! Right in the middle of town. The food was good but the atmosphere is very dark and the carpeting looks like it is 50 years old! We did really enjoy our meal though. I would go back again and have dinner there on our next visit to the Cape.

“Atmosphere tops the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

You don't go to The Squire for a great meal. You go there for the atmosphere, which is fabulous. Or the live music. Or to see and be seen, Where else are all the kids home for their summer break gonna go in a small town like Chatham?! It's a fun place to hang out, people watch, meet friends and gather around the really great bar. Sure, you can eat here too, but that's not why you go to the Squire! The food is average, the atmosphere is local and fun. Its a Chatham tradition, you gotta go there at least once!

“Terrific Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Usually, it's a good sign when a restaurant is packed with patrons. That means the food must be good. This place was no exception. I ordered a Prime Rib and it was done to perfection! The service was average and the atmosphere, while quaint, was a little noisy. You can't judge a place based on that, though, since it's more the fault of the patrons than the establishment. Definitely worth a return visit!

“Mediocre, at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We went there for lunch recently. Food was delivered within 10 minutes (probably closer to 8) which is kind of telling. Go there when speed is the decisive factor. Don't go if your focus is more on the tasty side - there are better places in Chatham. Great place for families with small kids, though (we were there a few years ago with our 4 very young kids) - they are very easy going.

“Good Local Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Nothing fancy with the menu or the environment - but if you're looking for a good meal at a reasonable price I'd recommend the Squire. Not the most extensive menu but a good selection of fish and meat dishes - and not everything fried!

Ate here on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant and bar were really busy - with visitors and locals - always a good sign.
