I have been going to this place for years, and this was my first time back since they got new management. It's never a good sign when the change is so obvious. Everyone's food was delayed, we were made to physically move our table to...More

They have great chowder! We go every time we're on the Cape. It's a small but cozy place. A bit expensive but worth going for the chowder. I haven't even tried anything else on the menu. It can sometimes be hard to get a table,...More

The chicken sandwich was very good. All of us liked the bread the sandwiches came on. It had a great crust and the lobster roll bread was also great. Service was good too.

Though still yummy, our sandwiches just weren't as good as in the past. We didn't mind the switch to counter service, but with the prices being the same (or higher) as in the past for less personal service and lower quality food, well... not worth...More

We got delicious chowder and lobster roll. I thought it was a bit expensive (the lobster roll was $20), but probably no more so than anything else on the Cape in the summer. If you want a quick lunch you really can't go wrong here.

We have always enjoyed stopping at the Lazy Lobster every summer for lunch. We were so disappointed to arrive today and not only find out it is under new management, but also to find out that it has been reduced to a tiny menu with...More

We took a beautiful winding route 28 North through quaint towns and gorgeous harbors, so when we saw the sign on on the side of the road we decided we'd find an unknown gem. Not so fast. It was a lovely Cape with nautical ambience....More

This is a great place for a quick stop between Orleans and Chatham on Route 28. Self serve, it has delicious and fresh food and very informal atmosphere. The crowd that gathers here is both long-time Cape visitors and locals. It is a great way...More

We are a family-owned seasonal restaurant located in Chatham, MA, just over a mile North of Main Street along Route 28. We proudly serve great quality breakfast and lunch made from the freshest ingredients. Come join us for dining in or taking out from May through October. Seasonal all day brunch restaurant open Friday - Monday (2018 Season) 8am - 3pm. Smaller menu with daily special board but whole menu is available all day. Full Bar with a great bloody mary menu. In 2017 the restaurant was subleased by some woman who had no idea what she was doing and really did damage to the place. It is a small, charming, quaint, Cape Cod restaurant off the busy beaten path of Main St. with a total of 25 seats. The staff are all local Cape Cod kids that either return every summer or live here year round. The Website I'm told is still under construction and being reformatted, however, the Lazy Lobster Facebook page is up to date, current and posted on regularly.
