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.
