We love the “oyster”! They have great Vermont butternut bisque! My husband always gets the Nantucket scallop sandwich! The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. Great atmosphere! It’s a must if you come to Chatham!

We have visited this restaurant every year since we have lived on the Cape. Lately the food has been very good to excellent but it has varied over the years. Seafood entries are always a good choice here.

Make reservations well ahead of time and arrive; early may not find parking. Excellent seafood and service. Has a full bar and can eat at bar or dining room. Pricey but well worth it!!
