On a frigid and rainy night, we ventured out to the Impudent Oyster for an authentic seafood feast and were not disappointed. The place was packed, but never seemed noisy and the service was fantastic - we didn't wait for a thing! The wine selection was top notch, and the specials offered a little something for everyone. I would have... More

Went to Chatham's First Night and took advantage of the New Years Eve's menu. It was a four course dinner, appetizer, soup or salad, dinner and dessert. The oysters, rack of lamb and duck were awesome. Nice selection of wine and very good service. When you are in Chatham, give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

One of the great things about this restaurant is that it's open all year long! It is definitely an upscale place for the locals as well as for the visitors during the summer high season. I was there during the week at the end of Dec and the place was mobbed. Large parties (four or more) were leaving because of... More

The food was exquisitely prepared, deliciously flavored, portions were large and server was very attentive. Make a reservation in advance, we would have gone back a few days later but they were booked.

This was one of the most delicious meals I've eaten in quite some time. We started with oysters wrapped in bacon and squash soup, both of which were out of this world. We then split a swordfish entree, which was very good but slightly overcooked. Large portions. Despite the imperfectly cooked fish, I'd give it 5 starts for the atmosphere... More

Interesting menu always, with fresh seafood, classic choices and always some spirited specials, and portions to make tomorrow's lunch... experienced, knowledgeable staff.. not a bargain and also a good night out. Easy to make everyone happy, including the gluten free crowd..

My husband and I recently enjoyed a night out for dinner here. It was our second time at this restaurant and it was just as good as the first. My husband had steak and I had a fish and crab plate and they were very good. We had the calamari for an appetizer which was also very good, although I... More

I Have a soy and shrimp allergy, the staff and server were very good with the allergy and one of our party is gluten free. The chief was super helpful, I enjoyed the cod on cod, everyone enjoyed the fresh seafood. Prices were a little high, but worth it if they work with you.
