I had an out of town guest who wanted a nice piece of meat so reluctantly I returned to Pates. First - it doesn't open until 5:30. As a result it quickly filled up and I'm sure the kitchen was slammed with orders. Second - we ate in the bar at a high top and the service was AWFUL. The... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant considering we are local and moved to this area only a couple of years ago. There are so many restaurants to dine at and this one was on our list of place to go. Considering some of the negative reviews we decided to give it a try anyway. We are glad we... More

We really enjoyed our meal here while in Chatham. If you want basic, real food, this is a great place to go. I had the lamb chops and my husband had steak, and they were cooked perfectly. And the baked stuffed potato was awesome! We will definitely be back next time we are in Chatham.

The place was packed on a Friday night in October! It is definitely the "off season" but you would never know it at this restaurant. The bar and the dining rooms were full and the "specials" offered innovative dishes that sent the message that this place means business. We loved the food and loved the staff.

The outing was spontaneous, we literally had no idea what to expect. The menu initially looked pricey but once we had spoken to the staff, we realised that the menu reflected the effort in preparing the dishes for its guests. The food and service were excellent, serloin and fish dishes are the best without doubt.

We chose this restaurant from an internet search and based our decision on the menu. What wonderful luck! Steaks and lamb chops on an open grill were so good we went back a second night to try more of the menu. The bartender made a great Campari and soda--one of my favorites and not often available. Service was good and... More

First time there. We couldn't stop talking about the filet. Ordered it medium and it came out nice and pink inside. It just melted in your mouth. Will go back again. The best filet we ever had. We're both in our late 60"s.

No doubt about it the meat is good. Ordered filet mignon which was cooked to perfection but the carrots on the plate were luke warm at best. The filet skewers came served a bed of rice, but we were offered another starch option so also had a baked potato and vegetables. Someone needs to think about how items are served... More
