This time a worthwhile pricey treat
This was the first time we had eaten at the Tavern of CBI though we had occasionally eaten previously over the years in the main dining room of the CBI and been a bit disappointed. This dining was "off" season so definitely quiet, but we found the food delicious. The bread with dipping oil excellent; we said no to the offer of more only because of the need to watch calories. The tomato soup was the best I've ever had. The Tavern is pricey. Our meal without dessert or coffee and with one of us having two appetizers rather than an entre consumed our $100 gift card.

Fries to die for
While the lobster flatbread was out of this world, the fries which came with my husband's dinner were absolutely the best I have ever had. I would come back just for them, but the variety on the menu is very enticing.

Although we intended to have
Although we intended to have dinner, we left after our (delicious) soup and drinks. The menu was interesting but fairly limited in selection and we just didn't find anything that appealed. The service was good, and room was comfortable. I wouldn't discourage anyone from checking it out.

A special Cape Cod restaurant
Location, location, location! Chatham Bars Inn is located overlooking the water and such a lovely, charming and elegant Inn. We ate in the casual Tavern and the food and atmosphere was perfect. A very enjoyable evening.

We ate early as my in-laws are early birds. At 5:30 pm, it was not too busy and mostly young families dining. A bit of noise from nearby kids, but that's to be expected. The food was good. We ordered a variety of food from prime rib (the special) to fresh fish, chowder and salads. It was all very good. Service a tad slow.

Old World Ambiance!!!
We loved our dinner at the Sacred Cod Tavern/Chatham Bars Inn. It was scrumptious from the wine to the bread to the entrees.
Will certainly go back again!!

Great all the way around.
Our service was excellent. She was very friendly and knowledgable. Their wine list is extensive and their food was cooked to perfection. The presentation of their food, from their oysters through to their entries, were well done. Great experience and we will definitely return the next time we are on the Cape.

Upscale bar food
The service was friendly but of mixed efficiency, the staff seemed at times to be at odds with one another. The specials were good but the staples, for the Cape, (chowder, etc.) were unremarkable. Some will find the quality and prices out of synch, but the location is great if you're planning on walking down to the shore or relaxing in the lobby.

Plesant Location with Decent Food
What we noticed was the kid-friendly nature. The very, and double underline friendy wait staff did an excellet job of catering to the younger crowd. Our food was well prepared--the calamari was very well done and the scallops were perfectly cooked. A very plesant change from all the fried fish/ long line/ poor service locations found all over Cape Cod.

For our stay in Chatham, we were searching for an upscale restaurant. The tavern is open to the public not like the other restaurants at the Inn. From start to finish, the meal and service were top-notch.

The resturant was great, the food and service was outstanding, drinks a little pricey.

Sacred Cod - Update their Info
Selected this restaurant based on the distance from where we were staying. Menu on Open Table had enough variety to meet diverse preferences but it wasn't anything special. The restaurant was very different from what we expected - in all of the best ways. It wasn't a dark little Cape tavern with a modest offering of chowdah and bar food. It was a beautiful, well appointed dining room, high ceilings with a fabulous chandelier. The menu featured locally sourced produce, seafood as well as chicken, beef or duck that enticed you to want to sample everything. Snacks, small plates, and sides were prepared to highlight novel seasonal pairings that would standout in any Manhattan chef's Bon Appetit spread.
