Just a wonderful restaurant to bring kids, they have a large area for kids to play around the flag pole. We come hear primarily for the fish and chips and it is always fresh and delicious. Their sandwiches are also good, try the steak sandwich.......nice young servers. Always a joy to visit, personifies the outdoor beach bar!

Not a fast place by any means. Get there before 5 p.m. or you will wait an hour. Doesn't matter what day of the week it is. This is one of the few family restaurants in the area, so it is PACKED to say the least. Food is decent-boneless buffalo wings are fantastic. A little overpriced, but so is everywhere else on the Cape. Loud atmosphere, so fine to take whole family, including little kids.

We visit Chapin's with our kids every time we're on the Cape. Waiting for a table is never an issue with the outdoor raw bar and spacious indoor bar. Food and service are always reliable. Cater to families and large groups. Can't say enough good things!!!

This place seems to be very popular. It's usually crowded and they don't take reservations. The bar, where you can also eat, is also crowded- so no place to wait for a table. The acoustics are terrible in here; it is LOUD. Very casual decor with mostly booths for seating.
The staff was very attentive- from the front desk hostess to the bartender to the bouncers to our waitress. The get a 5 star.
The food is average, relying heavily on butter and garlic to flavor everything. The prices are mid-range for Cape Cod. The food comes fairly quickly. The drinks aren't great.
They have live music some nights, set up in the bar and starting at 9 PM- which is really why we went. The band was great, but people don't dance there...not a particularly fun place.
Oh- they have valet parking! Kind of cool, but requires another tip...

We almost walked out when we hadn't been acknowledged by anyone after being seated for at least 10 minutes. We finally flagged down a waiter who was taking good care of the people across from us but hadn't even looked our way, and someone came over after that. The menu is the standard Cape Cod fare-chowder, lobster rolls, fried everything. It's not bad but it's nothing special, especially for the price. Most of the customers are locals & regulars, according to our waitress, so maybe that explains why they weren't in a hurry to serve us on a less than busy Sunday afternoon. Eat here if you're on the way to or from the nearby beaches of Chapin or Mayflower and it's convenient, but don't go out of your way to make the trip.
