We both had the cod and it was out of this world. Nice friendly staff and a cozy setting. House wines were good and we finished off the lunch with Pina Colada Bread Pudding.

We had a very delicious lunch here while spending some time in Chatham. The seafood was very fresh and the soup tasted homemade. If I am ever in Chatham again, I will be stopping here for sure!
