The restaurant itself is small, so there is a cosy feel. We loved our food -- I ordered the cajun salmon with citrus avacado salsa, my husband the barbecue ribs. Nice presentation, and the accompanying sides were tasty. We will come back!

I have been a Buca’s patron for over 30 years when this husband/wife team were located on Main St in Chatham. The food is every bit as good now as it was then and the surroundings are great and the wait staff is excellent as is the maitre d. We celebrated my wifes 35th birthday on main st Buca’s and yesterday we celebrated our anniversary at Buca’s 34 years later. We are very happy with Buca’s in every way. A great restaurant !!

We ate outside on the deck and the window boxes were absolutely beautiful. The receptionist was outstanding. She was cheerful, accommodating, and very professional. The menu is great as is the value. All in all Island Kitchen is one of our favorite Nantucket restaurants.

Our server was very quick and attentive. Service by the staff was excellent. the food was little pricey but everyone's food was well prepared and served hot. The portions were big enough that we had plenty left to take home for another meal. Only disappointment was that our meals came too fast even before we had a chance to finish our salads. Next time we will specify to slow it down a little bit. This is our new place in the town to go place. We shall visit regularly. May be next time we will visit them at lunch time.

Chatham
About the restaurant
From July 1st, 1957, there had been two owners of Pates, Cloyde Pate followed by the Gardner family of Chatham. Mr. Pate opened the doors to what would soon become one of Cape Cod’s most beloved restaurants. Once a cozy hamburger and ice cream stand, Pates grew to be a place of celebration, camaraderie, and community. From the bonds staff made during countless summer seasons, to the engagements, anniversaries, birthdays, and family gatherings, Pates has been a backdrop for exceptional moments and people.

We are honored to steward the next chapter of the Pates journey. A renovated space to create new memories and friends, Pates is still that very special place. With careful consideration, we have redefined this Chatham classic and are serving up an experience rooted in the best things in life: great food, good people, and lifelong memories.

Arrived at 5:00 and sat at the bar for half an hour for cocktails. Bar staff was friendly and efficient. Dinner reservation was for 5:30 and we were seated promptly. Our dinners included Strozzapreti with beef and veal ragu and Crispy Veal Scallopini, both of which were delicious and well-proportioned. Wines were excellent, although the pours seemed a bit short for the price. Desserts, if not traditional, were nonetheless good. The Tiramisu was made with limoncello-soaked lady fingers (we prefer the classis espresso-soaked lady fingers) and the Affogato had vanilla and chocolate gelato (we prefer vanilla only). But that's just our personal preferences, and not a thumbs-down rating by any means. Lastly, the entire waitstaff was very friendly and very attentive without being overbearing. We won't hesitate to return in the future.
