This was the best restaurant I ate at on this visit to the Cape. I was trying to get my yearly ration of mercury and I can say this place had great fish and good chowder too.

Amazing food, service and atmosphere! Recommend reservations as we came around 7:30pm on a Tuesday night in October and it was full. Luckily, the hostess was helpful in finding us a seat at the bar and we had our best meal in Chatham!

My husband and I went here for a special dinner for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, gourmet style but large portions. The place small and always busy, so make a reservation. And the meals are large so you may want to skip the appetizers.

Nice, yet simple atmosphere. A wide variety on the lunch menu, actually large portions. Very well prepared meals, with fresh ingredients and homemade specials.

Loved this place - the decor, ambiance and the food. We both had sole, although one off the standard menu with crab and the other a daily special. Both were delicious and the fish was beautifully cooked

Dinner here was a treat. We had been in Chatham for a few days and were beginning to wonder if we would ever find a good meal. We were very happy with everything. A very interesting menu and excellent service. Really the best place in town but go early!

I would say that the Impudent Oyster essentially lived up to the fanfare. Creative seafood menu, well executed. Service very good. Tad pricey. The Seafood Atlantis was our waitress' recommendation and it was heavenly. The plain, rustic exterior belies the cozy, sophisticated atmosphere inside. Unfortunately we waited too long to make our reservation so we got stuck with a 5:30... More

Located in the center of Chatham on a side street. Eclectic menu, seafood, steaks.etc, with a special touch of Vietnamese for the seafood bouillabaisse with oysters. Good service, great wine list and nice selection of inghtly specials.

Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant. We did not have advance reservations but arrived after rush hour (9pm on a Saturday night). We were greeted and seated immediately. Awesome menu with so many delicious, fresh and flavorful choices we will just need to come back again ! We started with oysters I had chicken and shrimp scampi for my entree... More
