  • The best part of this restaurant is the fact that the seals in the harbor love the attention while you wait for your food. I ordered a kid fish and chips and an adult fish and chips. They were exactly the same size, but the adult was$6 more. My friend order a scallop basket for$30; it had 10 fried scallops, 10 French fries and a2 oz coup of warm coleslaw. Her lobster salad looked good, but I didn't try it. I recommend only kids fish and chips and ice cream if you're visiting this tourist trap. Otherwise, there are dozens of other much nicer places to go!
  • This place was delicious! We were staying right down the street, near the lighthouse & went here several times. We saw the positive reviews & had to check it out! It didn't disappoint! The lobster rolls were delicious, some of the best we had on the cape. The bisque was delectable too. Everything was so fresh & well prepared here, it would be hard to go wrong with anything on the menu The owner was nice & willing to answer some of our questions about the fishing boats & pier. It's also a great place to spot the harbor seals waiting for scraps from the boats as they come in 👍.
  • The Harbor Seals, Trollers, Seagulls - amazing sights to see! Great way to learn about the local fishing trade. The seals were awesome to watch! Amazing ecosystem to observe. Fish market there as well as Harbor Master. Definitely worth the trip. Great experience!
  • A take out fish and seafood restaraunt with a limited menu - that said - the food is great. The Lobster Rolls are large chunks of whole lobster with fries and coleslaw. A really good meal. The Fish and and Chips were big pieces of flakey fish and really good. Most of the menu is fried (except the lobster). A salad would have been great as a side. They also sell fresh fish and lobster if you want to cook it home.
  • This was a favorite part of our trip to Chatham. Go around 1pm when the fishing boats arrive. Watch them unload their catch while the seals play around them. Fresh fried fish (not cheap) is right around the corner. Bring sunscreen if its sunny.
