We dine here every visit to the Cape. The service is outstanding and the food is amazing. My husband had fried scallops that he is still talking about three months later. I also had perfectly cooked scallops. So fresh and tasty.

This restaurant is a MUST every time my fiance and I visit Chatham. You cannot make reservations, but if you get there at open (5pm) you won't have an issue getting a seat. SO delicious.

Nice restaurant, very good food and attentive wait staff. Swordfish was excellent, cod wasn't quite a good, still quality dish though. A little pricey though. Overall a 4/5star.

If you prefer plain food, this may not be the place for you. The chef provides imaginative and delicious preparations, and the portions are generous. We started with "Devils on Horseback" which were bacon wrapped sea scallops - the best I've ever had, served on...More

A local favorite, the Impudent Oyster was a bit of a mixed bag for us. The oysters Rockefeller appetizer was excellent as was the clam chowder. We ordered two different entrees. One was very good, but the other was disappointing. It might be more helpful...More
