The place is very popular in summer...get there early or make a reservation - even on weekdays. We had to sit at the bar or wait an hour. The bartender was great, and used to food service. Food was great. we'd go again.

We have always loved Del Mar and eat here on a regular basis all year around. As in many Cape Cod restaurants, things tend to get tired at the end of the summer season. Employees return to college and details may be overlooked in the rush to Labor Day. Our party of eight had very good service and were seated... More

Amazing night at this great restaurant this week. The owner gave us a choice of early or late - you do want to reserve early but we were last minute. So, our 5:15 reservation it was. We were able to sit in the main dining room which I love, in the semi circle, raised booths. Great view of the kitchen... More

The food here is always great and the service is attentive. A busy place every night of the week during the summer; so busy that you need to put your name in for a bar seat.

The food at Del Mar is incredible. The wait can be long even with reservations. Make sure you have an appetite going in as the portions are huge. The wait staff can be arrogant and unfriendly but may warm as the evening continues. They are a bit rushed as there are so many people trying to get a table. Nice... More

Del Mar never disappoints. My husband and I ate here last night and had another outstanding meal. There's a reason they are number one. We discovered it several years ago and always make it a stop when in Chatham. Everything from cocktails to appetizer to entree was delicious, the flavors incredible and the combinations unique. We started with the Lobster... More

The food at this restaurent is beyond excellent. Having been there last summer (2015) and returning again last week, the food has only gotten better. I had Portugese clams with chorizo sausage, tomatoes, etc and can honestly say it is the best I have ever had of this dish. The wine is great, the service great and an overall MUST... More

Definitely please I had a reservation for dinner on a Friday in August. The place is very busy and I understand why. The service is excellent. There are several employees with specialized task and it seems they all know and do their assigned task very well. Our server, Ann, was very professional and helpful. The food was very good including... More

The food is so good. Arrived a few minutes before restaurant opened and there was a line to get in. Well worth it. We had the tuna and filet mignon and both were delicious. Also had an oyster app and desert which were also very good. Highly recommend.

Thank Kjg315
