The lobster roll and seafood chowder were fantastic and although we did not buy any the seafood looked extremely fresh.

Literally the best lobster rolls on the planet. This isn't a sit down and eat restaurant - this is a fish market. Buy and go. They have fresh hot chowder which is amazing. We'll definitely be back!

Been there once on 2013. Tasting the best clam chowder in the area, they also sell fresh seafood with reasonable price

Stopped for a short while to see the catch being brought in to the harbour (very efficient operation) and the seals waiting below the deck. Parking was much in demand but worth a wait. Even had someone on hand to answer questions and explain about...More

We were there the first week in November. It was fun watching the fresh catches of fish being unloaded and weighed. The seals were everywhere waiting for the decks to be swept off so they could catch a meal. The seagulls were there also, watching...More

Is this the pier where you can see the seals gathering?

There are some seals around when there are fishing boats at the docks. Otherwise you can see seals hauled out at low tide opposite the Chatham Bars Inn.
