Have visited many times and always have the whole belly fried clams. The clams are the best I’ve had anywhere. All of their fried food is gluten free and so good. The onion rings and scallops are also delicious.

Stop in and visit Paul and Eileen at Chatham Fish & Lobster where you will find the freshest, highest quality seafood caught daily from Cape Cod waters. Chatham Fish and Lobster has been a Cape Cod tradition for many years at our original location on Main Street in West Chatham and also at our second location in Ring Bros. Marketplace in Dennis off of Route 6 at exit 9. Come in and take home everything you need for a Cape Cod style meal! We sell fresh fish such as flounder, sole, cod, scrod, haddock, tuna, halibut, swordfish and salmon. We have Cape Cod shellfish including steamer clams, mussels, oysters, littleneck clams, fresh crab meat, fresh lobster meat, crab cakes, cherrystone clams, shrimp, sea scallops, stuffed clams and quahogs. We have fresh caught live lobsters from one pound to 6+ pounds and we also have specialty items such as seafood pate, seafood marinades, homemade chowders and cocktail sauces.
