We've had many great breakfasts here. All the food is prepared to your order. Try the french toast, the omelets or the eggs benedict. They are top notch. It's a small space so be prepared to wait to be seated, but it is well worth the wait. The service is prompt and the servers are very friendly. Once you're seated... More

We love The Lazy Lobster! The breakfasts are delicious --try the trail pancakes with bananas and granola --I always add blueberries as well. The egg dishes are outstanding and the owners are amazing --the best couple ever and I look forward to seeing them and giving them a big hug at the start of every summer --they work so hard... More

I'm sure that the Lazy Lobster is as good as everyone says, but when we tried to have lunch there on October 15, the phone recording said that it was closed until the spring.

We have been coming to this area for a number of years but this was our first time to this restaurant. The house we rented for the week had a roof top deck overlooking lighthouse beach so we did mostly take out. The food we were served was excellent! Fish tacos, crab cakes and homemade cole slaw all were perfectly... More

My wife and I had heard about the Lazy Lobster, and all of it was good, but our schedule was such that getting there looked like it would not be in the cards. The Lazy Lobster is closed Tuesday, and is only open for breakfast and lunch. We are so pleased we made the effort! It was a bit before... More

This cute little restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. We came across this as we were heading out of Chatham and up to P-town. The clam chowder was the best my husband and I have ever eaten. The Lobster Roll was just as good and just enough for the two of us. Glad we stopped here.

On a lazy drive exploring Cape Cod, we found Route 6 really boring. Wanting something better to look at and realizing it was time for lunch, we swung down to Route 28, a much more interesting and scenic drive. Looking for local restaurants, we found the Lazy Lobster well recommended on Trip Advisor. It's not much to look at; it... More

Recently while staying on Cape Cod, my brother and I had the opportunity to eat at several of the various “native” restaurants. One of these was the Lazy Lobster in North Chatham, MA. Since we were visiting relatives we decided to eat a brunch and chose the Lazy Lobster. We found out that on Sunday’s you will have to wait... More
