We have been long time admirers of Pate's steak dinners. This time we were seated just in front of the grill where the 3 chefs were shouting back and forth to each other in some foreign language---not conducive to a relaxing dinner. So we picked up our drinks and moved to a corner table and proceeded to order our usual rump steak dinner. But, truthfully, the mood had been spoiled. The steak and baked potato arrived only lukewarm---too much talking and too little attention to keeping the meal hot. We will look for another steak place in Chatham---if one exists.

Pate's is a like a lot of the typical surf and turf joints on Cape Cod. Its a time machine, decor seems circa 1975, dark wood and just plain dark. You will feel like you came out of a cave when you walk out and its still light out.

But the staff is very nice and the food is good and fairly priced. Can't ask for much more than that when you have a family of 4 to feed.

Pate's has been around for years for a reason. Mostly a steakhouse but seafood is on the menu. Favorites are the steak teriyaki, twice baked potato and Caesar salad. You can always count on Pate's for a constantly good meal!

We have been coming two weeks to Cape Cod every summer for years. We eat at Pate's a half dozen times a year. Why? Because it is the best real food around (we like Chillingsworth for high-end dining). We are foodies, and I'm a Palm 837 Club member. So I like steak and prime rib. Pate's has great prime rib-as good as you can have anywhere, excellent filet mignon, and perfectly prepared steamed 2lb lobster. A fairly priced wine list, and a classic coconut snowball for dessert. Clubby classic roadhouse atmosphere with ship board signs etc. Excellent service. When I see some of the lesser reviews of this place, I am amazed since we keep going and loving it. Pate's is excellent!

With all the crowded restaurants in town so busy, we decided to try Pate's. So glad we did! The menu was more diverse than many we've seen on the Cape (seafood, beef, chicken, pasta and more), and our meals were excellent. Great service, too. We would definitely return!
