We've eaten here over the years and have never had a bad meal. My faves are Devils on Horseback (scallops) and the Cod Florentine. This place is popular year 'round, so be sure to make a reservation.

A wonderful place for dinner! The food was excellent and the drinks were even better. It's a small restaurant so reservations are highly recommended. Love the atmosphere of the place. It was loud from everyone talking (the tables are really close to each other) so if you're looking for a quiet dinner spot, this isn't it.

Make a reservation! Saturday night in mid-winter and the place is hopping. No wonder, the menu is loaded with great choices and the service is prompt, friendly, and efficient. Scallop appetizer (Devils on Horseback) and Seafood Atlantis entree were excellent.

I recently visited Impudent Oyster twice for lunch and was impressed with the quality and quantity of food as well as the service. This is a great spot just off of Main Street that offers a solid variety of seafood, salads, and other popular offerings. Not fancy, but it's clean and well lit with natural sunlight and lots of greenery.... More

We went there for my birthday. Made a reservation for 5:30 wasn't crowded at that time but within an hour the place started to fill up. The food is great, but the logistics of the restaurant itself is a little quirky. You can only enter the restaurant from the parking lot which you enter through a rather heavy door into... More

We went there for lunch right at noon time. It's winter on the Cape so things are slow compared to the summer. The new young hostess looked at us and said, "Sit There". I wanted a corner table & she got really mad, and with an angry tone in her voice said that's for a table of five, no way!!!.... More

The Impudent Oyster is our favorite restaurant in Chatham. It is the restaurant that we continue to return to for the delicious food, excellent service with a smile, reasonable prices and the convenient location in the center of town. We enjoyed a delicious dinner on Saturday evening and went back for lunch the next day! The service as usual was... More

My husband and I dined here on 12/30/16 with another couple and all 4 of us had an excellent meal. Two of us had the "Salmon Linda" a Special that night. Out of this world, so good. The other two meals were a beef special and a fish dish that they both loved. Great service too. Definitely going back.

One of the very best places to eat lunch and dinner on the same day and truly enjoy both events. Fresh seafood (clams, oysters and cod) are at the top of the list. Turning away from fish, I chose a veal Milanese dish for dinner that was unbelievable! Oh yes .. deserts.. all chocolate beyond belief. Try them all. The... More
