This is a great Bar with mediocre food. They are seasonable only open from April through September. They often have live bands during the summer months. It's a great place to stop for a drink and entertainment after a nice dinner elsewhere.

We always enjoy Chapins in Dennisport. They do have another location as well with I'm sure the same menu. Lots of choices, great appetizers and drinks and always busy with a crowded parking lot. Busy parking lot is always a good sign! We come especially for our favorite - mozzarella sticks. They give you about 10 of them which could... More

The bar area is excellent but bartenders are often moody. There is an outdoor eating are which is excellent on a warm night. I hope they rethink their strategy and... More

Service is always great, staff is knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. The food presentation is fabulous and delicious always!!! The outside bar and deck is a great way to end a perfect beach day or start a great evening. All around a perfect place on Cape Cod!!!

I first visited Chapin's in the mid 1960's when I worked summers on Cape Cod. Back then Chapin's was one of The local hangouts in Dennis where one would go for a bucket of fresh dug steamed clams, bowl of clam chowder, and a good drink. Over the years Chapin's has grown tremendously but the high level of quality food... More

Went there to watch football and they have a very lame beer selection. No craft beers?!?! This isn't 2005, how about an IPA, pale ale, or porter with some flavor that's not Bud or Coors light. Planks Tavern always has at least 3-4 craft beer options and the food and atmosphere is better.

As a very frequent paying guest at Chapin's Restaurant, I was treated very badly. Food was terrible. Lady bartender was in a bad mood, and snapped at me.
