We were pleased to find this restaurant was still serving dinner as we arrived late. We liked the clam chowder and I tried the calamari. Calamari can be rubbery and I was a little unsure about ordering it, but, it was very good! The wait staff was very helpful and attentive and made our day after a long drive. The... More

Great variety of seafood and other dishes. We prefer this to all others at the Cape. Great chowder and fried fish items. None have been disappointing over the years.

Located near Chapin's Beach on Lower County Road, this place is family friendly with plenty of opportunity to sit outside on lovely days. A grilled chicken sandwich was tasty as was the tomato and buffalo mozzarella wrap. The place is lively but everyone is friendly!

We have visited Chapins South Side many times over the years. It is a VERY family friendly place that has set aside a side yard where restless children can gather and play in a safe environment while grown ups relax and enjoy. Food is plentiful, delicious, and at a fair price. Service is friendly and prompt. Line form quickly during... More

The buffalo shrimp appetizer included 7-8 large butterflied shrimp, very fresh in a delicious buffalo sauce that might have had a touch of bbq sauce in it. The baked schrod with lobster sauce was fresh, large, seasoned well and the sauce reminded me of an excellent lobster bisque with chunks of lobster. The oysters were raised right in Dennis, the...

Nice pub with live musician and the food was very good too. I had baked cod with lobster sauce - liked it a lot. Big outdoor area that is great for kids to play soccer

Was here a few years ago, and was pleased. This time, clams were over priced and over done. Fish and chips was too" fishy". Wait staff acted like they were doing us a favor. Never again.

We had dinner here with a very cranky toddler. We went early and the place was empty, which was perfect. Our server was very understanding to our situation and gave us ample time to look over menus and calm the wild child. Our food was delivered fast and hot, and everything was delicious.

We were in Cape Cod and NEEDED to eat some fresh fish and seafood. We heard that this place was good so we decided to try it out. The staff was not so friendly. The waiters seemed to think that they were better than their job. We ordered the boneless chicken wings and they were DELICIOUS!!!!! some of the best... More

We have been here a few times for dinner as we love Chapin's by Chapin Beach in Dennis. The food quality is lower and much is served on lower end dishware, ie: clam chowder served in Styrofoam bowl, plastic cutlery. The prices are similar to the other Chapin's, so you should focus on going there.
