We ended up at this restaurant for our anniversary meal because it was a Monday and there were basically two places in Chatham open: one of which we had been to the prior evening, the other was pretty full but in the middle of a power failure. The hostess at the latter suggested that for a great seafood meal we... More

Small, intimate, and always packed. That's because there's no restaurant this good on Cape Cod. Not only the freshest fish, but adventurous side dishes and beautiful wines. Get there at 5PM or expect a wait.

If you are looking for delicious mussels, calamari and bread this is the place for lunch. The mussels were tasty, cooked in a fresh tomato, onion, garlic broth. The fried calamari was the lightest I have ever had! Skip the summer salad, this was a huge disappointment. It was overpriced, $11, for two slices of tomato, some goat cheese and... More

We weren't sure what to expect at this place as the clientele were a bit on the older side, but ended up with a really great, creative seafood meal.

It was our first visit to the Brewster Fish House. It was recommended to us by our innkeepers. They warned us that there were no reservations, but it was September so we thought we would risk it. The 30 minute wait was more like 20 minutes in the end and the wait was well worth it. It is a fairly... More

Very good food. Fish and lobster were great. Have the local oysters! Staff was friendly and dedicated - clearly enjoy what they're doing. No reservations, but they'll get you a drink and let you sit out on the patio if you need to wait.

We finally made it to the Brewster Fish House after years of living and visiting the Cape. It was always over an hour wait, but we went early this time and were lucky to get in. It is a small and quaint place with a full bar and a few different dining areas. The food was good, just the right... More

My wife and I had a reservation for Friday night and we had the full treatment. Cocktails(excellent), appetizers(excellent tuna), Entrees...not too creative and small portions for the price. A bottle of vino, and desert. (Good). The service is excellent in a tight dining area. The main courses are okay, the Halibut was flavorless and the Cod was very good even... More

Good food, nice menu, but pricy. They do not take reservations. It was very crowded both in the restaurant and the bar when we arrived. We had to sit outside near the front door, and it was a long wait to be seated. But that said, the service and staff were great, and my dinner was good. They do "accommodate... More
