I was hoping they would steam a lobster for me and serve it with butter but they told me it would take over an hour to steam it and that they wouldn't serve it with butter. Bummer.

This is a must do when I'm Chatham. Lots of seals and lots of the day's catch! Fisherman unload their catch of the day, mostly in the afternoon. The parking spaces are very narrow so be patient if you have an SUV or mini van. Fun to see the seals.

We wanted to extend the trip... so we stopped by and bought lobsters and clams and grilled when we got back to Rhode Island after a long weekend. Everyone was friendly and one of the men behind the counter showed my son how to tell the difference between a boy and girl lobster :-)

Great experience while there for the fourth of July week. Purchased 5 lbs of Halibut and they prepare for cooking and wrap up. We have also gotten our lobsters there and they will also prepare. The fish was very fresh and yummy! I think they are a family business, not sure but we love it. All who work there are... More

Picked up a couple of four pound lobsters and a few pounds of salmon for dinner. Everything was super fresh and tasted great even though it was cooked by us. They had all the fixings to go with the fish. Nice place with large selection.

It doesn't smell that good, but it gives you a taste of Cape Cod and the fishing industry. Park on the parking lot on top of the hill. If you read too fast you think you are not allowed to park, but it's early in the morning where you can't park. Go down the stairs and go to the pier... More

This was very good seafood but not the best we have had. It was a bit pricey compared to other fish markets. The location was nice and you could watch the seals in the harbor. It was very busy. I had a lobster roll that was good but not the best.

We stopped in about once a day while we were there for a week just to check out the action. We were only luck enough to find a large catch of stingrays being brought in. It was very fascinating to watch the fisherman work. Seals are around the docks waiting for something to be thrown there way.

Neat place to seal watch. As the fisherman come in the seals are right there hoping to get a bite. after watching the seals we went in to Chatham Pier to try their soups since we had read in the Trip Advisors review they were great. I was not impressed. I specifically asked if the Lobster bisque had chunks of... More
