Tugboats is located in the Hyannis Marina with great views of inner Hyannis Harbor, Island ferries, and magnificent yachts. We hadn't been here in several years, but last night wanted a casual seafood dinner; we went with our son, daugher-in-law, and 3 year old granddaughter. As we were getting our granddaughter settled in her chair, a waitress quite snippily told... More

Fish was frozen. The meal had no taste. The view was fantastic. This is a job for kitchen nightmares, chef Ramsey

Tugboats has an amazing view.. Seafood is traditional Cape Cod fare. Not fine dining but def worth what you are paying for. Service is excellent

The deck outside faces west, so the views of the Hyannis harbor at sunset were great. The service was friendly and prompt. The quohog appetizer was the highlight of the meal. The fish was tasty and the pile of onion rings were great. Great spot slightly off the strip in Hyannis.

We enjoyed the terrific dinner with a large group of friends. The Tugboat offers a wide variety of seafood that is sure to please. I highly recommend the steamers as an appetizer, very tasty and very clean. The baked scallops melted in your mouth with that wonderful flavor of nice fresh scallops. Everyone in the group enjoyed their meal.

Great location, good food but the wait staff is incredibly rude. We often bring our boat to Hyannis Marina and so the location couldn't be better but we won't be back. There are plenty of restaurants on the other side of the harbor that actually want your business. I suggest you go there instead.

I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before going here. The location is wonderful, but the food will keep us going back. Everything we ordered was wonderful. The waitress was great with my daughter. They offer a fantastic Gluten Free menu. The meal was amazing and even came out with a delicious GF warm bun along with bread for the... More

Tugboats is a casual seafood place, set right on Hyannis Harbor. It's away from the Main Street & Ocean Street crowds, which I really liked. There is indoor & outdoor seating, as well as a pub area. The staff was very friendly. Waitress was quick & competent. Noticed when our glasses were empty & came by our table right away,... More

Tugboats is very special because it is located right on Hyannis Harbor. You can eat on a deck overlooking the harbor and watch the yachts and ferries coming and going. The food is great. You can choose fried clams, lobsters, scrod, hamburgs, etc. Onion rings are exceptional. Good for all ages.
