Food was so fresh! My family had fried clams and fried fish...delicious. We saw so many boats, a seal and a fisherman digging for clams. Great local culture! Highly recommend!

Small pier to watch the ships come in with the fresh fish. Also fresh fish market to buy the fish. Market was closed when we were there but to open Memorial Day

The lobster roll and seafood chowder were fantastic and although we did not buy any the seafood looked extremely fresh.

Literally the best lobster rolls on the planet. This isn't a sit down and eat restaurant - this is a fish market. Buy and go. They have fresh hot chowder which is amazing. We'll definitely be back!

Been there once on 2013. Tasting the best clam chowder in the area, they also sell fresh seafood with reasonable price

Great spot to watch the fishing boat come in and out. The kids loved it. Also, the seals put on quite a show. Beautiful any time of year but summer is the most active.

Is this the pier where you can see the seals gathering?

There are some seals around when there are fishing boats at the docks. Otherwise you can see seals hauled out at low tide opposite the Chatham Bars Inn.
