Greek Dance

Dancing has traditionally been one of the most ancient forms of community entertainment and, indeed, has been true throughout the history of the Greeks even as it is today. As to the ancient Greeks, the dance was a social activity in the truest sense of the word. Anyone who has the good fortune to observe Greeks dancing, or better yet, to dance with them cannot help but understand that they are still thoroughly enjoying themselves.

The young people of St. George’s Dance Troupe keep the tradition of Greek dance alive for our beautiful Cape Cod community.

Our dancers will be dancing once again at this year’s fest. So watch, enjoy and then join in on the dancing as Ta Pethia takes to the stage.

We went with a large group on a busy Saturday and honestly I was impressed with quickness and quality of our service.
The food was great! I applaud the kitchen staffs turnout time. They manage to get the food out quickly and don’t sacrifice quality to do it.
The best part was the amazing hostess and our incredible server!
I cannot speak highly enough about the woman that took care of our chaotic table! As well as her ability to make sure I was extra taken care of with my food allergy (fish of all things). In a restaurant that serves so much fish her attentiveness and knowledge helped me feel beyond secure in eating there.
We Cannot wait to go back again!!!

Great food with new menu items. The raw bar trio appetizer was superb with a Hendricks G&T. Baked scallops were sweet and tender. My only suggestion is to add espresso as an after dinner option.

The food was delicious cooked to perfection. I had fish & chips made with haddock just how I like it. Great service and theme. I’d definitely suggest it to anyone looking to enjoy a night out.

The unique name is what caught my attention and the location was great. When you first approach the tavern you are greeted by a friendly hostess with a bright smile. My brother and I decided to sit outside despite the windy and overcast weather. They had heaters set up all along the patio that accented the setting with the open flames. All the staff were friendly and quick to serve. The menu had an array of items to choose with an abundance choices of seafood. I decided to try their “Award Winning Clam Chowder” which was creamy, not too heavy, seasoned just right and balanced for a mouthful of clam chowdery goodness. Instead of getting just two lunch entrees we decided to pick a few starters and ordered their spicy tuna tacos, popcorn shrimp, and bacon wrapped scallops. Tuna was seared evenly with a peppercorn crust topped with sautéed peppers and onions wrapped in a corn tortilla. Popcorn shrimp were so so tasty we just kept popping one after another. The bacon wrapped scallops were perfectly cooked with bacon just right with the right amount of crispness and texture of the scallop and bacon was excellent.
Our experience at the Black Cat was memorable and will have us come back again.

We love this place! Could sit at the bar all night and eat that shrimp! The bartender makes the best spicy margaritas too! Can’t wait to go back next summer!

Atmosphere, service, food and being in downtown Chatham just adds to the magic! Make reservations for the dining room or go into the raw bar! Either one you can’t lose! Looking forward to next summer and get to enjoy their outside patio.

Great atmosphere and waitstaff. We have enjoyed the Raw Bar Happy Hour. the Chatham oysters are a favorite. Fish Tacos are also excellent.

Our favorite place to eat in Chatham! The food is excellent, the staff is suburb and the atmosphere is wonderful!! Can’t wait to get back to Chatham in the spring so we can do our weekly visit!!!!

Fresh, beautiful food. Flavor that allowed for the seafood to be the star. Great service, location, and selection.

Best meal I have had at the Cape this week with exceptional service.

Fabulous food! Sat at the bar tonight and had appetizers-shrimp, calamari and spring rolls. Absolutely amazing! Incredible bread pudding with cranberries too. Awesome service!

Extremely nice staff – welcoming to us and our small dogs (on the patio).  Offered blankets etc as it got chilly in the shade… We only had Oysters and apps ( calamari & the lobster quesadillas ) all were wonderful!   Great experience – especially with the idea of a quick app and drink in mind.

Our favorite Chatham restaurant during a three day stay, we visited during Restaurant Week and were able to take advantage of more reasonably priced menu options. My Portuguese Scrod was an excellent choice and a dish that I wish I could have again. Wonderfully fresh and mild fish was complemented by a flavorful broth and deliciously fresh vegetables all served on rice with ground chorizo. My clam fritters were my least favorite part of the meal but the apple tarte tatin was absolutely delicious.  Service was friendly, prompt and efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed this pleasant restaurant.

Anyhow, it was so good, and so worth it!! Bartender hooked us up, service was excellent, and the ambiance was just right. Hubby and I split the raw bar “Shore Road” and it did not disappoint. Our mansion stacked platters of raw bar were superb. Dessert and soups were wonderful. Whomever got the raw bar menu together for this really knew their audience.  We will be back!!
