This is one of my favorite places, not just in Chatham but on the Cape overall. The chowder is so, so good - among the best I've had, and I'm from New England, so I've had a bowl or two over the years. But everything is great - fresh and plentiful. So do yourself a favor and get some food... More

We ordered lunch at the counter ad waited for the food the fish sandwich was not as good as we had the day before. The chowder we ordered lacked any substance and basically was liquid only.

This place is very casual , there is a fish market connected to it. I had their lobster chowder and it was delicious. My husband had the fish and chips. It was just average.

Chatham Fish & Lobster is both a terrific fish store with great service and an excellent lunch spot with great, fresh food made on the premises. The lobster salad is especially good. Their prepared food can all be eaten in or taken out.

It was a cold, rainy day and we needing warming up. The lobster corn bisque and the clam chowder we had, did just that. They were delicious. They also sell divine desserts, such as peanut butter brownie.

We absolutely love the clam chowder (chowdah) from here! While visiting the Cape we sample clam chowder at every restaurant we go to. While we did try several delicious ones they haven't been able to top Chatham Fish & Lobster. We always grab a few quarts to go so we can continue to enjoy it at home after the vacation.... More
