Restaurants in Chatham


The Chatham Squire

Located directly downtown, the Squire is known and loved by all. It is split into two sides: the bar side, which is perfect early in the evening for kids as they can play foosball and video games while their parents enjoy their cocktails, and the restaurant side, which is a little more upscale, but still family oriented, and features a lovely wine list as well as a broad – something for everyone – menu. A great option for a family dinner that serves more than nuggets.
