The Chart Room, Cataumet

As soon as the doors to The Chart Room open in mid-May, visitors and locals head to the Cataumet establishment to enjoy stunning views, great food, and a lively atmosphere.

Located on Red Brook Harbor, The Chart Room is a unique dining spot in that the restaurant itself is built on a previously functioning barge. According to owner Dave Jarvis, the barge, once used by the New Jersey Central Railroad, arrived at the Cataumet Marina in the 1950s and was used for over a decade as a machine shop. As the marina developed—and the numbers of hungry fishermen increased—the barge was transformed into a restaurant—The Chart Room— in 1966.

According to Jarvis, the restaurant offers a traditional Cape Cod ambiance with, he says, “a casual, upbeat atmosphere.” On the menu, diners will find a variety of crowd-pleasing entrees and appetizers such as scallops, lobster salad, and scrod.

Nightly piano performances often inspire diners to get up and sing, and Jarvis says even while waiting for seating guests can relax in a comfortable Adirondack chair outside, while sipping on a cool cocktail and enjoying the view of the harbor.

Located at 1 Shipyard Lane in Cataumet, The Chart Room is open daily through Columbus Day, from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. ~ Maeve Mudie
