My husband and I dined here on 12/30/16 with another couple and all 4 of us had an excellent meal. Two of us had the "Salmon Linda" a Special that night. Out of this world, so good. The other two meals were a beef special and a fish dish that they both loved. Great service too. Definitely going back.

One of the very best places to eat lunch and dinner on the same day and truly enjoy both events. Fresh seafood (clams, oysters and cod) are at the top of the list. Turning away from fish, I chose a veal Milanese dish for dinner that was unbelievable! Oh yes .. deserts.. all chocolate beyond belief. Try them all. The... More

The 'Oyster' is arguably Chatham's best restaurant and a recent visit certainly highlighted this. We went for lunch which is more 'casal' thn dinner, but the food standards do not drop. The prices are affordable and the wait staff and reception are friendly and efficient. They actually seem to be enjoying their jobs!

I own restaurants. I have been here before but never for New years eve. A 4 course meal offered for 100 a person. Expensive I thought but it's New Years right? Went at 5pm (felt like a Seinfeld episode) Remember, my reviews are honest and I am very picky. Service friendly, prompt. Ordered drinks. Then we ordered all four courses.... More

I O is a delightful mixture of towny/tourist, sunny dining room/shady bar. Lots of seafood and the best corn beef Reuben in New England which went perfectly with a draft Sam Adams Winter Lager. Packed on New Years Day with strollers just a half block off Main Street creating a very happy but not raucous vibe.

This place was recommended by family member. It did not disappoint. It is a very lovely place in Chatham. We sat at the bar for lunch. The bar tender was great. The menu for lunch had a great selection. My husband had clam chowder and some cherry stone clams. I had a squash soup. It did not disappoint. The gentleman... More

Decided to have dinner here after all the positive reviews. Many times the experience doesn't live up to the actual review, in this case all the good reviews are correct Great atmosphere, great food, great service just what you want after some crazy holidays or just get out for dinner without the kids. We enjoyed dinner at the bar and... More

We had lunch here on a Saturday. The service was very good and the food was delicious. I recommend the lobster roll. We were on vacation and spent the afternoon in Chatham. This restaurant was close to shops and within walking distance to the lot where we parked the car. Charming town and a quaint restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

We had a very nice lunch while on our honeymoon. The raw bar options were very nice with very fresh Oysters and Shrimp, while the lunch portions offered enough food to fill us up. The salad offered a nice array of fresh greens and other items Overall the visit was very nice and the food excellent. Our waiter was a... More

We had dinner here based on the recommendation of our innkeeper, as we were looking for a classic seafood dinner. That's exactly what you'll get here, albeit it's a bit overpriced for what the food is. It's good, flavorful but straightforward, with a nice variety on the menu. The atmosphere inside the old church is really cool too.
