We love The Blue Coral - it reappears every summer in a little hidden oasis behind Main Street in Chatham and we wait for it every year. Dining al fresco in a relaxed and casual atmosphere is what vacation is all about! You can go for drinks and sit at the bar, or get a table under the canopy. Either... More

After dining in Chatham for many years we finally tried this hidden oasis. Fun setting, delicious cocktails as well as a unique menu!! The mussels appetizer is a must!!! Had Lighthouse Crepe and was not disappointed! Very filling! Will definitely go back next season . Our server was very attentive and personable!

I've passed this restaurant numerous times and finally stopped in. The hostess was very informative and gave information regarding the menu as we were being seated. The atmosphere made you feel like you were away on vacation! Our waiter took our drink order and then returned to tell us the specials and the most popular dishes. We ordered the Forager... More

So I have come here for a number of years and they recently changed their menu - a good sized crepe menu with savory and sweet crepes. I got the Angler - basically a decadent tuna melt with apples and tomatoes. It was really delicious. Also liked the St Croix drink, but the bartender can make anything. What I like... More

So very, very sad. The Blue Coral has been our favorite for about a dozen years. We went straight there to make a reservation upon coming to Chatham for vacation. What did we find? A menu featuring crepes, and sandwiches, and burgers. What happened to the astoundingly good menu and sophisticated crowd? Yes, we ate there with our toddler years... More

We were walking on the strip, and as I had dropped $200 two days earlier, I knew where the place was.... Hidden away.,.. So I walked in to use the washroom, and was told it was for customers only. That day customers only. Where I come from this is not the custom. For that reason I would never go back... More

On the most loveliest of summer days, we returned to Blue Coral for it's lovely outdoor bar and perhaps to fulfill my quest for a lobster roll. Ignored at the empty bar for almost 10 minutes, the barkeep finally realized he had customers and took our drink orders. Forgiveness ensued when I received my delicious Bloody Mary - -BUT no...

While visiting Chatham recently my husband and I stumbled upon Blue Coral on Main Street. We ate during a crowded lunch hour while sitting at the bar. The service, drinks and food were all excellent. I tried the "Crepe of the Day" which feared scallops and it was delicious! We returned another afternoon for drinks and apps and found the... More

This was a great hidden patio off Main St. in Chatham. We were seated after a few logistical issues between the hostess stand on Main St., and the staff down the lane at the patio. The staff were very friendly. No beer on tap, only cans which was fine, and they had a fairly decent selection. TVs with the Red... More
