Knowing the outstanding reputation of Chatham Bars Inn, I decided to take my 4th of July weekend houseguests to the beachside clambake for dinner. It was a bad experience: poor service, cold food, sand in the clams, overcooked lobster, and a buffet that ran out of clam chowder (at a clambake). After waiting for more than 10 minutes, I gave up on the chowder, as it still had not been replenished. And, we were forced to eat at a picnic table that was dirty, had benches that were 8 inches from the sand and wouldn't move. Not what I would expect for $70 per person!! You can find much better clambakes at the Cape. Forget this one!! Still not giving up, we went to lunch one day at the front porch dining area of the Inn. This time, it took more than one hour to get simple appetizers (which had to be sent back to the kitchen because they weren't done correctly), and an additional 30 minutes to get entrees (which weren't that good), Forget this one too. Cape Cod has wonderful restaurants. Save your money and try some others.
