I wouldn't say that we have been to a lot of "fancy" restaurants, but of those that we have been to, it's hard to beat Stars at the Chatham Bars Inn. The food, service, and ambiance were something that will keep us coming back. Definitely worth every penny and it made for a wonderful birthday dinner for my wife.

Enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner here. The view of the moon shining down on the ocean was gorgeous. The waldorf salad was delicious, as was the pheasant consomme. The steak and lobster was also very good. A little disappointed in the dessert selection, but overall a really nice place for a special dinner.

Fifty firefighters, family and friends attended a retirement party to celebrate the 36 year career of one of their own from the Chatham Fire Dept. The private event was held at the Beach House Grille and was a buffet barbecue theme. The views were breathtaking. The food and service on the other hand were dismal. All food was placed in steamer trays. The hamburgers were literally raw and cold inside which made them inedible! Cold cheese was presented in a platter to accommodate patrons who wanted a cheeseburger. The potatoes in the potato salad were also so undercooked they crunched when you chewed them. The barbecue chicken was was edible but very dry. The baked beans and corn were good. The waitstaff was very pleasant.
I was very disappointed in the quality of the food and the cost. It was very overpriced. How hard is it to grille burgers and dogs and keep them warm?t It was a disappointing end to one of Chatham finest. I would NOT recommend this venue

I wanted to take a moment to respond to your email with regard to your unsatisfactory dining experience at the Beach House Grill. I appreciated your candid and constructive criticism. If we fail to provide the quality of food and service that our guests expect from CBI, I certainly want to know about it.

Please accept my apologies for the disappointing quality of food you and your fellow attendees encountered. I have to agree with you that the dining experience you described was not up to the standards of service and cuisine for which Chatham Bars Inn is known and I can certainly understand your disappointment, especially since you had come for a special dinner celebration.

I do hope that you will be able to view your experience as a rare and isolated incident and not an indication of deteriorating service standards. I have discussed your letter with our Executive Chef who assured me that he will use your comments in his staff training efforts.

As you know, we are long-time supporters of the Chatham Fire Department and have served them well for many years. In this case we fell short of our own standards. To make amends we will be sending a gift certificate for an overnight stay with dinner to the evening’s special honoree.

Thank you again for sharing your experience with us so and giving us the chance to apologize.

Kind regards,

Michael Briggs, Resort Manager
On behalf of Managing Director Paul Zuest

Dining outdoors for lunch or light dinner at the oceanfront Beach House Grille is wonderful. The setting is second to none. When we were there, they had a two many band that was superb and made us feel like we were vacationing in the Caribbean. The Lobster Nachos are to die for. A little pricey but that is to be expected at the nicest beachfront restaurant in town!

Orlando is THE BEST waiter anywhere. He is friendly, helpful and can describe all the food on the menu.

Try the lobster flambe!! It is amazing.
