Chatham Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Chatham

April 14, 2018 Marianna Hollaway

This pleasant, walkable town right at the elbow of Cape Cod is a classic New England vacation spot. Bringing kids? Check out calm beaches like Cockle Cove Beach and Harding’s Beach. If you’re looking for stunning scenery, however, try Chatham Lighthouse Beach. Its tides can be strong (heed the posted warnings), but it’s one of the most beautiful beaches on the Cape.

We have gone here for years for the best pies on the Cape. They have a large selection of berry pies that are all the best. We have not tried their seafood pies but others claim them to be excellent.

We love the Wine Bar, in fact, we had our Engagement party on the patio a couple summer's ago and it was a huge success! The food is always amazing and the wine list is the best around, so we figured it would be the perfect place to enjoy New Year's Eve. Chef Regina always creates one of a kind experiences and this one was no different! She keeps pushing boundaries and keeps the food exciting. It's always a fun adventure enjoying her creations. Between the food, the wine, and the wonderfully accommodating, gracious hosts and staff, we were beyond impressed. We can't wait for her next event!

My wife and I bought two sandwiches to take to the beach. The bread was so stale you could not eat it. I called when we came home and was told that the bread was "usually" fresh. The girl then hung the phone up without even a simple apology.

Buffy's Ice Cream Shop

Reviewed By Frank P - Tewksbury, Massachusetts

We walked and stoped in many Chatham shops and art galleries and wanted something to hold us over for dinner as well as something cold. This place was right in front of us so we got a small dish of ice cream. It was very good and hit the spot. Added bonus was down in the side from the front door there were some gorgeous bushes with magnificent followers. I'm not so much into flowers but my girlfriend is and she was in heaven and took a. Ice photo!

Corner Store

Reviewed By bmk1459 - Falmouth, Massachusetts

I had heard many good reviews of this place, so I finally tried it as I am in the area on business a lot. I ordered the Italian on ciabatta bread which is one of my favorite sandwiches. I was disappointed when a mess of meat and cheese overloaded with hot peppers was unwrapped. I could only eat half the sandwich whereas it was such a poor example of this classic great Italian sandwich. I would not recommend this place on this experience.

I have been frequenting the Del Mar for years with family and friends. My mother took me here to celebrate my 30th birthday and we were accompanied by two friends and had a wonderful time. I love how relaxing the atmosphere is, even when patrons are packed in like sardines. John, the owner, is awesome. The bartenders and waitresses are terrific. I can't recommend just one menu item because everything is delicious. I love how the waitress last night (I don't remember her name), put a candle on my dessert for my birthday. That was a very nice thing to do. I ordered the Mississippi Mud Pie and mom had the Turtle Cheesecake. It's a great place to go solo or with a group.

Impudent Oyster

Reviewed By John L - West Hartford, Connecticut

On our last night, we met with friends from Dennis. After passing around a few suggestions, the Impudent Oyster seemed the best option; and a very short walk from our Inn.

I called early afternoon looking for a table at 6:00, it's winter, no problem. Problem, no tables except for 5:00 pm. Wow. We took it.

Get there at 5:00 pm and the place was indeed mobbed. We get seated and about 5 minutes later our friends arrive. Beverages ordered, a couple of Riesling wines and two IPA's. We then had time to take the surroundings. We were seated on a half flight above the tavern. The interior presented a mix of Old Tavern, a Church gone by, and a tiny slice of Swiss Chalet.

The four of us decided to forego appetizers and dive right into a main course. After all, personally my appetite wasn't in the mood for the Early Bird Senior Dining Hour. Three of the four ordered the Impudent Pho Bouillabaisse and I had Sirloin Tips and Shrimp over a bed of rice and a teriyaki sauce heavily laden with salt. The tips & shrimp delicious, but the Bouillabaisse was the way to go, amply loaded with a variety of treats from the sea.

We finish off the evening with a short walk back to our Inn by the fireplace with a bottle of Red and a bottle of home-brew from a friend back home.

As a party of six with diverse tastes we took advantage of the broad variety of dishes varying from sashimi, raw sushi, cooked sushi to Pad Thai. All were fresh, well prepared, nicely presented and promptly served. The atmosphere was lively and fun but not overwhelming.
