After calling only to find out that no more reservations were being taken, for a Tuesday night, we chanced to walk in. The parking lot was packed but we gave it a shot. The staff at the hostess desk were so nice and they tried to cheer us up by telling us that a jazz group was setting up, and... More

Del Mar has the freshest and best prepared sword fish of any Cape Cod restaurant we have visited. The portion is large and comes served with a salad so you don't need to order a separate appetizer. The wine list is extensive and the service is excellent. This is our first choice when attending the Monomoy Theater in Chatham.

One evening in early July my husband, son and I went to the Del Mar in Chatham. We did not have reservations on what was a busy evening and were told the wait may be 35-40 minutes. We elected to stay and enjoy a drink while listening to a live jazz trio. Our wait turned out to be more like... More

Very nice seafood restaurant in Chatham. There was a live Jazz band playing the night we visited. Very crowded, vibrant atmosphere. The duck was very succulent. Halibut was great. Good sized portions. Adequate service. Make sure you make a reservation.i

Great food, atmosphere and service. And they take reservations. And we were seated at 7:00 for a 7:00 Saturday reservation. For Cape Cod, wow.

Second trip to Chatham, first time visit to Del Mar. We went on a Monday night and the place was full, they must do great business all week. We were seated fairly quickly even without a reservation. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly, and gave us great suggestions! I highly recommend the Bolognese pizza! They had... More

This is a good place to eat; good food, for all budgets, but be prepared to wait; place is loud, not the best place for a romantic dinner.

Del Mar served up an excellent meal but not as better than some other local establishments. The phone is always busy and reservations should be made by stopping in. I wouldnt miss it if visiting Chatham

We had a 5:30 p.m. dinner reservation (yes, even on a Tuesday, you need a reservation.) It was my sister's 50th birthday -- a very special night and we were there to celebrate. We started off with an appetizer off the special's board: Artichoke hearts, lightly battered and fried with goat cheese. It was a somewhat small portion, but we... More
