From July 1st, 1957, there had been two owners of Pates, Cloyde Pate followed by the Gardner family of Chatham. Mr. Pate opened the doors to what would soon become one of Cape Cod’s most beloved restaurants. Once a cozy hamburger and ice cream stand, Pates grew to be a place of celebration, camaraderie, and community. From the bonds staff made during countless summer seasons, to the engagements, anniversaries, birthdays, and family gatherings, Pates has been a backdrop for exceptional moments and people.

We are honored to steward the next chapter of the Pates journey. A renovated space to create new memories and friends, Pates is still that very special place. With careful consideration, we have redefined this Chatham classic and are serving up an experience rooted in the best things in life: great food, good people, and lifelong memories.

    From the minute we walked in we felt welcomed and enjoyed a relaxing experience. Never rushed, the service was wonderful, food exceptional and the wine list was plentiful. This place is a must when on the Cape.

    We come for two weeks every year and specifically request to be seated in Heather’s section. She is fantastic, and the service is always outstanding. Heather is why we come to Pate’s; the food quality is consistently excellent. This year's managerial staff was incredibly responsive when we made our reservations and asked to be seated in Heather’s section. We couldn't ask for a better dining experience in the Cape.

    Everything was great except for the heat. We had a party of 4 which we called and increased to 6. Right before dinner we added a 7th. The staff made it happen with no issues. The service was fantastic. The food even better. The appetizers were outstanding. The calamari and the duck tacos fabulous. The main courses were a hit with everyone. The only issue, and it is an ongoing issue, is the heat. I am uncertain if the AC is undersized to handle the space but we have experienced this before at Pates. I would potentially not go if the temperature was over 75-80 degrees outside. Too bad because they nail all the tough things like service, food and atmosphere. AC is easy. I wish they would take care of it.

    I had not been to Pate's since the new reincarnation and I can happily say it did not disappoint. Plenty of parking and they started us off with a tasty white bean dip with the bread basket, a very nice touch. We share the Duck tacos, larger than expected, full of rich juicy meat and great flavor. The fried broccoli, which is tender and very flavorful and the tuna cones which were very tasty. We shared the seafood w/fehttuchini special and the again the flavors and portions were terrific. We also had 2 of the specialty cocktails and both were excellent. We did not have room for dessert, but we will be back soon.

    Another great experience at Pate's, but this one was the best yet. The staff were all efficient, friendly and accommodating. The cuisine was top shelf; great presentation, interesting flavors and excellent preparation. The wine list is extensive enough to provide a goodly number of options and is reasonably priced. Thank you!!
