Try the chowder - delicious! Nice thickness and the bacon was an added surprise!!

Really enjoyed the atmosphere of the bar - bartender was a riot!! Definately recommend the Shark Bite - even if it's not shark week in Chatham.

We will definately return next summer:)

The Blue Coral is a nice little hideaway restaurant hidden behind a couple of shops (in between the Mayflower and the Squire) on Main Street in Chatham. Surprisingly, given Chatham's location on Cape Cod, the Blue Coral is one of the few completely outdoor restaurants and, indeed, one of only a handful or restaurants in Chatham that have any outdoor seating. The food is decent although a bit pricy for its level of quality but the main reason for going to the Blue Coral is simply to sit outside and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and to escape the crowds on Main Street. If you want a formal fine dining experience, this is not the place -- but for good simple fare and a fun atmosphere the Blue Coral is a little oasis.

Found this restaurant by accident by coming in the back way (where we had parked our car for a walk in the village).
The whole restaurant is outside in a garden-like patio. Colorful lights in the trees and beautiful plants everywhere. It was a gorgeous summer night - not too hot (no bugs).
Nice waiter, good food, excellent wine, reasonable price. I must admit that the "excellent" rating had more to do with the magic of the setting than the food even though the food was very good. I had chicken piccata and my partner had the catch of the day (halibut, I think) - both were tasty & fresh.

We were visiting friends in Cape Cod, and strolling Chatham looking for a nice place to dine outside on a bright beautiful day. The Blue Coral fit the bill perfectly. Wonderful garden setting complete with fragrant blooming jasmine. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was delicious. We had the Clam Chowder which was thick and delicious. The spinach salad with strawberries, and walnuts was fresh and yummy. Mussels were done perfectly, as was the crab cake.
I highly recommend this restaurant for lunch in an outdoor setting.

stay away. We were looking for a lunch spot and bypassed the Chatham Squire. Mistake. Here are the facts. The food was expensive. The portions were small. The shrimp ordered with the salad were few in number (3) and grossly over cooked. We tried to order Ahi tuna for another salad and found the tuna was only offered cold. No wonder shrimp are less expensive and they can't cook those. We also waited 20-25 minutes our food to arrive. There are much better places to eat. I am sorry I chose to eat in a seasonal restaurant. Never again. On the positive side, it resembles a Hawaiian or Caribbean outside restaurant. The owners would be well to read this because they are obviously getting most of their business from the preppy pony tail in the cap blondes driving their BMW SUVs around Chatham who don't have to work for their money and have no where else to go. Don't waste YOUR hard earned money there go elsewhere.
