If you have not been to the Chart Room at Cataumet, make sure it is on your bucket list for this summer season.

The Chart Room has been open since 1966 and was first opened on board a converted New Jersey Center Railroad barge built around the turn of the last century. Overtime, once the Cataumet Marina was developed, visiting yachtsmen required dining facilities, and the idea of creating a restaurant in the barge was immediately born, with sidewalls being replaced and a kitchen added. Today, the roof remains the same with its massive beams and arched structure, and the floor is the original railroad planking.

The Chart Room opens each year in the spring and runs into fall weekends through Labor Day. The Chart Room’s mission is to provide customers with the best seafood available, and with a dining experience that they will not forget. Many of the menu options at the Chart Room are made in-house using the freshest ingredients available. At The Chart Room, you can enjoy a few drinks by the water or stop by for dinner with the family, and you can guarantee that the staff will make sure your experience is a positive one!

Check out some of my favorite dishes and drinks from The Chart Room.
