“Love this place”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Our favorite place in downtown Chatham. Yeah okay as some have said, a little pricey but the food is quite good and it's a nice setting - quiet, back patio. Waitresses are very pleasant and service times are appropriate for your orders. Great on a sunny day. Limited kid selections but they do offer the basics.

“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I accidentally found this place one afternoon while biking through town. We stopped in for a drink and fell in love with the outdoor (almost Caribbean like) atmosphere. We chatted with the bartender who was very nice! We decided we would go back for dinner with some friends. A few nights later we went back and we were so glad we did!! My husband has a gluten/dairy allergy and they were very accommodating. The waitress and the rest of the staff were excellent. And the food was amazing! Best food we had in Chatham all week. I got the lobster ravioli and it was outstanding!!! My husband and our friend got the flat iron steak and they loved it! Very tender, served with risotto and a veggie. And our other friend got the chicken piccata and he also loved it. It was a little pricey but we did also get 2 bottles of wine! Well worth it. We will absolutely visit this place again when we go back to Chatham next summer.

“Lovely outdoor setting, great seafood”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This place is great for lunch - relaxed alfresco dining, tucked away behind Main Street - worth searching out. High quality seafood such as top notch crab cakes and the like.

“Seafood al fresco”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We were walking around Chatham on a beautiful day, and its outdoor seating was perfect for lunch. The food isn't cheap but if you set the price aside, it's good. The lobster roll and the crab cake sandwich were both good, with a generous supply of the shellfish, nicely prepared (not much added to the lobster meat). So maybe their strong point is seafood, as we didn't try anything else.

“Delicious food in pretty setting”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

All food delicious. Salmon and scallops excellent. Vegetables also cooked to perfection. Very pretty garden although plastic chairs a bit of a let down. Also could do with a nice dry Provençal rose wine on the menu. Other than that perfect and would recommend
