Great atmosphere, food is just three stars though.... Very crowded. Good chowder; lollipops for kids.

The restaurant area inside is nice, but nothing to get excited about. Then, we made our way through the restaurant to the outdoor seating area just off the bar and it was a completely different experience. There was a wet bar, a raw bar and just a fun atmosphere out there. We were initially just going out there to get a drink and possibly an appetizer, then quickly realized (and also begged by the kids) that we wanted to eat out there. The food was very good with huge portions and good flavor. The only disappointments were the bar drinks. We had a spicy bloody-mary that was blah. The kids ordered virgin strawberry daiquiris that weren't good either and they didn't even end up drinking them. That's the only complaints and we would certainly go back if we were in the area.

This is a jumping local restaurant that serves good food in large portions. Don't expect fancy dining as this is a family place with lots of kids. The noise level was a bit high. Very casual. Come in your shorts and tees.

Chapin's has the typical deep fried fish and seafood fare which is pretty good, but the best part is if you're traveling with young kids, they have a really nice sized yard that the kids can run around and shake their sillies out before, during and after dinner. The bar is pretty comfy and the live music is fun if you are there are the right time. The staff is always very friendly and efficient, but do be prepared for a long wait during the busy months. Oh, another fun family thing - FREE POPCORN!

Always a great meal, whether it's a half pound burger or the melt in your mouth calamari.
A complete menu, seafood to steaks delicious chowder and huge desserts.
