This is our new favorite dinner restaurant in Chatham. The food is unique and delicious! Try the lobster ravioli. Crepes make a great appetizer. The only negative point was that the patrons left the women's restroom door open. This bothered us since our table was near the door. People working at the restaurant were usually attentive at closing the door.

We stopped in last night after trying to get a table at the Squire. We didn't want to wait an hour so we decided to try The Blue Coral which seated us immediately. The atmosphere was nice. I believe all of the tables are outside. The menu is limited, but there were several specials. My husband had the lobster roll... More

I only order the Lobster roll here. I don't know why other than I crave it and love their presentation every year we come here. Service is good and everyone loved their meals! It's definitely a staple when in Chatham. Tucked behind shopping area, great for lunch!

We had a very nice evening, the service was very friendly and accommodating from the moment we walked. The food was very tasty, just a bit too pricey. The meals were more tapas in size and that would be great if the prices were in line with that. Outside seating and excellent atmosphere and our overall experience was very good.

Wandered round Chatham & found everywhere busy & quoting 90 minute waits for food at 7.30pm Saw this place & with only 10 mins to wait at the bar, it was even better than expected. The service was great, the outside eating area is lovely; we ate beneath a beautiful acer tree & the food was great; lobster ravioli &... More

Been to this quaint outdoor restaurant a few different summers and not only is their service great but their mussels are the best in town. Their mussels are placed in a light corn broth with crunchy bread on the side for dipping. I also asked if I could have a small side salad with grilled shrimp that wasn't on the... More

On a beautiful summer night in Chatham, this is the place to go. Right downtown, set among towering trees, you get top notch service and great choices. We like to bring visitors here. Their steaks are excellent.

Nice quiet spot off Main St. in the center of town. Gracious servers and hostess. Food was good but not memorable.

Well as tropical as it can imagine on the Cape, another annual stop for us, as mentioned in other reviews, right off of main street and nestled in a little out-cove off the beaten path, look for the blue shark sign, I believe they were the first to use a shark on their logo - now they are everywhere because...

We stopped here for a late lunch with two kids. Cool and casual hidden outdoor dining area off of Main Street. Nice outdoor bar area and patio tables. We had the Cajun chicken sandwich and the grilled scallop roll special, both were delicious. Scallop roll was tossed in a light vinaigrette, no mayo which was nice. Service was fabulous, fast...
