This restaurant has the best food in Chatham. Meat eaters and vegetarians alike, for those with big appetites or small, it really makes top-notch food. You need a reservation.

Early evening dinner well spent at Del Mar for these Michiganders. Good draft beer and wine selections as well as craft cocktails - think the Last Word! I enjoyed the clam chowder and my companion tried local oysters. I loved the soft shell crab done tempura-style! We shared an ample Jerk Tuna entree so that we would have room for... More

We have been to Del Mar several times, the last being a cold night in early February. We had reservations, but waited a good half hour for our table.

Del Mar is busy - a testament to the quality of the food and service. While the brick oven turns out great pizzas, the creative chef and her team produce spectacular seafood dishes in the same oven. Call well in advance for a weekend reservation. Don't miss the haddock or flounder.

We were a party of 4. Three of us had flounder, one had cod. Imaginative recipes, perfectly cooked. Service was attentive. The restaurant was full, but every staff member was moving, cooperating with each other.

Everything was top notch with really great food and excellent service. Our only disappointment was that the restaurant had run out of chocolate lava cake by 7:30pm on a Saturday :-( Somewhat of an oversight - no restaurant should be running out of something on the specials menu by 7:30!

We sat at the bar since there were no tables available which was fine. The bartender was great. You need to book weeks ahead for reservations i was told I had duck, my husband had the halibut. the food is excellent portions were huge..I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed

Fish was delicious. My parents and I had the New England clam chowder, so tasty and creamy. We had also tuna and haddock, everything so fresh! The staff was nice and willing to give us advices.
