“Enjoyable Outdoor Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

My husband and I had a wonderful seafood dinner and great drinks at The Blue Coral! It's outdoor setting was wonderful for a beautiful evening. It's a little hidden, behind some of the stores on Main Street and had great background music. We also had such a friendly waitress who worked here during her summer break from the University of Massachusetts. I don't recall her name, but she was attentive, helpful and knowledgeable! All in all, a great evening!!

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

You need to go on a sunny day as majority of seating is outside unless you are at tiki-type bar. Located down a little alley off main shopping rood. Mostly in shade so it is a nice little oasis. Def our favorite place to have a cocktail on vacation. Tried the mango margarita and it was excellent. I am VERY picky and it was not too sweet. My teens had the macaroni & cheese with grilled chicken and enjoyed it very much. Husband and I had the salads. Very good eats. Staff super friendly. I'd make reservations if it is sunny out (think dinner starts at 5:30). To top it off you have a nice photo opp at the hostess station with a giant Hawaiian-shirted shark.

“dining al fresco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

This restaurant is hidden away, but worth it. Bring a sweater because all of the seating is outside, under a canopy of trees...very pleasant, but can get chilly on a typical Chatham evening. Enjoyed our drinks, chowder and fish dishes. We will definitely be back. Service was a bit slow and it was hard to track down our waitress, at times, but other than that, no complaints.

“Wonderful Food, A Hidden Gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Ran across this restaurant by accident and certainly thankful for that. The restaurant is set back from the sidewalk/road, however the hostess is right out front. The seating area is wonderful, under a canopy of trees. The food was really good. Not too heavy. A good meal for a day of shopping. They also have a nice bar area if shopping isn't your thing (Men, I am talking to you). Had the Lobster Roll and sampled the Seared Tuna salad. Both were great. If you need seperate checks, ask when you sit down. Service was nice and we didn't feel rushed.

“Hidden little spot off the Main drag!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We expected because this space was tucked away it may be really good! The spinach salad was great but the lobster roll tasted burnt from the bun that was grilled to long. It should have never left the kitchen!
Wine selection not that great but they have many other drinks.
