Right in the heart of Chatham's main street area, busy but with a nice buzz. Service excellent, but food average. Tasty bread, my risotto was good, my wife and son's selections very average.

A nice sit down place to eat. A huge amount of space to sit in for large groups of people. It has a good amount of different foods to eat and a large bar. A very good place for late night dining.

We had a delicious meal and our server, Mimi, was the best. The swordfish was excellent as was the Sole. We will definitely go back. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Place is much larger than you expect from the outside. Lots of families having dinner with unbehaved children (the table next to us allowed one of their kids to actually climb on the table!). Noisy place when busy. However, food was delicious - amazing swordfish...More
