We drove to Cape Cod to do two things: enjoy the picturesque landscape and enjoy lunch at the Impudent Oyster. Both experience surpass wildest expectations. This restaurant is rather small so making reservations is highly recommended. We did not and got lucky with only waiting about twenty minutes. The clam chowder was divine and the lobster roll delightful but the... More

I have been to this place numerous times, and have never been disappointed. Personally, I prefer it off season, because it can be very busy in summer. The best spot is definitively at the bar. The menu is vast, offering also a lot of specials. Oysters are very fresh, all their seafood dishes are creative, abundant and delicious. My favorites... More

We went to the Impudent Oyster Friday evening and had a most delectable meal - the duck pate, caesar salad, filet mignon - excellent. The service was friendly and warm, the server knowledgable. I hope to return again soon!

I have a summer home in Chatham. This is by far my number one recommendation. Not only is the menu creative and tastes great, you won't leave hungry. Bar is cozy. Staff is great and been there forever.

Set in the heart of beautiful Chatham village steps from Main Street, the Oyster offers an outstanding lunch and dinner menu in a casual setting. The fish and shellfish dishes are terrific and nicely presented. Luncheon sandwiches (the "Po-boys" are great) and salads also available. Desserts are also outstanding. Our lunch for two was $65.00 plus wine. Lunch hours are... More

We've eaten here over the years and have never had a bad meal. My faves are Devils on Horseback (scallops) and the Cod Florentine. This place is popular year 'round, so be sure to make a reservation.

A wonderful place for dinner! The food was excellent and the drinks were even better. It's a small restaurant so reservations are highly recommended. Love the atmosphere of the place. It was loud from everyone talking (the tables are really close to each other) so if you're looking for a quiet dinner spot, this isn't it.

Make a reservation! Saturday night in mid-winter and the place is hopping. No wonder, the menu is loaded with great choices and the service is prompt, friendly, and efficient. Scallop appetizer (Devils on Horseback) and Seafood Atlantis entree were excellent.
