Great fresh fish!

A must stop in Chatham. It's right on the water and offers fresh fish - we had both scallops and clams.

Seriously the best & great value for money lobster roll. It's pricey but plenty for 2 to share as it comes with gorgeous skinny chips!!

We came to watch the seals and only saw a few the first time. We came back around 2 the next day (when fishing boats return) and were so glad we did! The seals were plentiful and quite entertaining. Great experience for little ones.

There is no greater thrill than to see the fishing boats come in and unload their catch before your eyes! It gives you a new perspective on the fisherman. It also helps explain why the Chatham restaurants have such fresh seafood!

The lobster roll was amazing and plenty of it! Definitely worth the price tag. They had many other great looking items as well, including Key Lime Pie!

We had heard about the fishing boats coming into the pier and the seals that followed them so we decided to see for ourselves. We got there about four in a deluge of rain and decided to brave it. There is an observation deck and we went up to see what we could see. I think the boats had already... More

This is a no frills fish market...real working fisherman and straight out of the ocean seafood. To say the food is amazing is quite the understatement! I had scallops that I dream about and my husband had clams that he loved equally. The clam fritters were a treat as well. We ate on picnic tables and watched fisherman at work... More

We visited the Fish Pier one morning around 10AM and were treated to a close up display of seals. The fishing boats were lined up to unload there catches and 6 or so seals were swimming and basking right below our spot on the observation deck. It was spectacular to see the seals up close feeding on the occasional fish... More
