Fodor's Review

When Chatham's fishing fleet returns, sometime between noon and 2 pm daily, this pier bustles with activity. The unloading of the boats is a big local event, drawing crowds who watch it all from an observation deck. From their fishing grounds 3 to 100 mi offshore, fishermen bring in haddock, cod, flounder, lobster, halibut, and pollack, which are packed in ice and shipped to New York and Boston or sold at the fish market here. Also here is The Provider, a monument

to the town's fishing industry, showing a hand pulling a fish-filled net from the sea. If you can be patient with the long lines coming out of the tiny Chatham Pier Fish Market, they serve up some of the finest lobster rolls (loads of meat) and fish sandwiches.
