Great service, very good food (small portions), quite limited memo. Trying too hard to be “gourmet”! Overpriced for what you get.
I was very disappointed for a New Year’s Eve dinner. The staff was short handed and the food was poor quality. I expected it would be great, I think the regular chef was off. The Pan fried Haddock was skimpy and cold. Clam chowder was very thick, sent it back and waited a long time for a little kids pizza for my granddaughter. Looked like a microwave pizza. We were disappointed.
Glad to find a restaurant open on Christmas Eve Night. They had a small limited Holiday menu. I got the Haddock and so did my mother and it was barely warm -- just enough not to return it. My sister got the Risotto which was too hot. The table next to us returned the chowder for not being hot enough. Service and the hostess was fantastic. A little bit pricey for the portion size too.
We went before Christmas and it was Too Loud in the tavern! We’d never had that happen before. It was hard to hear and conversation was, then, Difficult!
Service was very good and the meals were all highly enjoyed.
We went for dinner during Chatham Christmas Stroll. The menu was heavy seafood (as expected) but had great options for the non-seafood eaters. We enjoyed all our dishes, our only complaint was our entrees came out before we were even finished with our appetizers. We didn't want to rush the dinner as this was a girls weekend/ getaway. They were very apologetic, but no one wanted reheated fish, so we took the entrees as they came and had all the dishes on our table. All in all, not a showstopper, but a slight annoyance.
My friends and I get together once a month for lunch. In the summer we go to the CBI Beach Grill so we decided to try the Sacred Cod for our December lunch. We were pleasantly surprised at the changes that have been made to the old tavern. The food was very good & the Christmas decorations were outstanding. We were very glad we chose the Sacred Cod & will be back for future luncheons.
Since I picked the restaurant I was quite embarrassed when the service was horrific and the food was sub bar. The well reputable Chatham Bars left much to be desired. I had never eaten here before but found the other 5 people I was with had and shortly found out why they were disappointed when they found out where I had chosen to eat. It seems they had been here several weeks before and had the same horrible experience. From the moment we sat down we waited for everything. The bread that was in the oven for 'an hour' finally came out when we were almost done with our dinner. Appetizers were brought out for all but one guest who ate much after us. I wouldn't recommend and wouldn't go back. Way over rated.
We had a good lunch. Wife had Lobster roll and I the Fish an Chips and they were very good. Very attentive initial service slowed the lunch service filled up. Oysters were fresh and delicious with a good presentation.
My daughter and I planned lunch prior to our spa appointment at CBI. The noise level made it hard to converse even though we were sitting next to each other. The wait staff was excellent but it took over an hour for our flatbread to arrive. Further more, the wine we had selected was not chilled. Because of the slow service we were a few minutes late for our spa appointment.
We consoled each other by sitting in the jacuzzi in the rain and just enjoying each others company. The restaurant should invest in padded ceiling tiles or rugs to diminish the noise level. CBI is still a lovely destination point but it is in dire need of some upgrades...
Service was so so for he price
My wife and I had a quiet dinner at a table near the bar, The room is pleasant, the service is friendly, professional and prompt. I had the soup special, roasted tomatoes and peppers locally grown; it was unusual and superb, like no tomato soup I had ever had. My wife's appetizer was excellent, We both had lump crabcakes, very nice indeed. It happens that night the Sacred Cod featured my favorite dessert, strawberry shortcake. It was visually a delight and fabulous to eat. It was one of the very best I have had and I have had a great many. This small restaurant at the famous Chatham Bars Inn resort is a gem, upholding the Inn's reputation for fine dining.
Server was lovely, but appeared to have too many tables and not enough support. Food is fine.
We had such high hopes after reading reviews, but the food was a huge disappointment. I ordered the chicken, it was completely flavorless and dry (not even seasoned with salt and pepper), the eggplant was so overcooked it was liquefied, and the whole dish was sitting in a pool of tomato water. My fiance ordered a burger which was slathered in so much blue cheese he could not taste anything else. I sent back my dish for the first time in my life. Service was GREAT, but definitely would not return.
Excellent service, fantastic food
Great food and service. Our waiter was one of the best.
Food was outstanding. Service was excellent. Loved it!
The setting is great and the food was excellent. The service was impeccable.
We had a wonderful dining experience and loved our waiter Alando! The one thing we missed from last year was the wonderful cranberry butter to spread on your delicious rolls-PLEASE BRING THAT BACK!! My children even enjoyed their dinners which is a difficult task! Thanks and see you next year!
First, the Chatham Bars Inn as a very elegant and picturesque venue. We were early for our reservation and enjoyed drinks on the patio overlooking the ocean. Tremendous service quality and attention to detail. It felt like a walk back in time. The Sacred Cod is a more casual "pub" atmosphere that is a bit crowded and loud, but the food was spectacular and fresh. I drove past the CBI farm in Brewster the day before so I know that the food is locally sourced and it was delicious. Serving sizes are modest, but every bite was delicious.
