Owner / Executive Chef
From July 1st, 1957, there have been two owners of Pate’s, Cloyde Pate followed by the Gardner family of Chatham. Cloyde 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, Pate’s has been a backdrop for exceptional moments and people.
The new owners of Pate’s have made a long term investment to upgrade the space, making it more user friendly, ready to accept you as our guest. A renovated space to create new memories and friends, Pate’s is still that very special place. It is our distinct privilege as the new curators of this grand tradition to work tirelessly to build a vibrant Pate’s future.
