Hunting for a friendly lunch spot to bring the kiddos? Or maybe you want a relaxed dinner sans white table cloths and ten dollar cocktails? Chatham Squire in downtown Chatham may feel like a family room gone amok, but does that have to be a negative thing? Casual, with paisley carpet, wooden tables and captain’s chairs, plus pool tables when the weather cools, this is where locals and tourists come for a good burger and reasonably priced seafood. For varied palates, you can order up anything from pasta to egg rolls, oysters to wing dings. Not sure what to get? The chowder is always excellent.
If you aren’t feeling the screaming tots in the dining room, pop in for a pint and to watch the Sox in the convivial tavern (a rambunctious destination for college students in warmer months, until locals return in September). And if that’s not enough to whet your whistle, there’s karaoke on Tuesday evenings at 9:30.
