It can be very difficult to eat gluten free when traveling. Had given up trying to find a place and stopped here thinking I would just have to make do as best I could. Boy was I suprised to find out that all their fried entrees are made gluten free!! We ordered the fish & chips and the large pieces... More

We ordered lunch at the counter ad waited for the food the fish sandwich was not as good as we had the day before. The chowder we ordered lacked any substance and basically was liquid only.

This place is very casual , there is a fish market connected to it. I had their lobster chowder and it was delicious. My husband had the fish and chips. It was just average.

The fish tacos here are spectacular! We regularly stop here on our way to the beach, and always get the fish taco. Just spectacular!

Chatham Fish & Lobster is both a terrific fish store with great service and an excellent lunch spot with great, fresh food made on the premises. The lobster salad is especially good. Their prepared food can all be eaten in or taken out.

It was a cold, rainy day and we needing warming up. The lobster corn bisque and the clam chowder we had, did just that. They were delicious. They also sell divine desserts, such as peanut butter brownie.

We absolutely love the clam chowder (chowdah) from here! While visiting the Cape we sample clam chowder at every restaurant we go to. While we did try several delicious ones they haven't been able to top Chatham Fish & Lobster. We always grab a few quarts to go so we can continue to enjoy it at home after the vacation.... More

The food at Chatham Fish and Lobster is terrific and service is very good. You can buy the freshest fish to cook at home or have your food made to order.

Had a good bowl of lobster corn bisque today at this simple eatery next to the wonderful fish market. But dont bother ordering the onion rings which were undercooked and tasteless. Would advise the mgmt to make the portion smaller and have them fully fried so as not to taste raw flour in the batter and raw flavorless onion.

The fish was very fresh. The breading was too thick and heavy, and not crispy and there was something different about the clam strips. Were they razor clams? Good, but I had trouble figuring out exactly what they were. French fries were good. The place seems to be very popular. I have to say Arnolds in Eastham just is consistently... More
