My family and I have been coming to this restaurant for 25 years, beginning when I was a toddler. The food for one, is incredible. I have ordered nothing but a 1lb steamed lobster dinner for decades. The meal is always cooked to perfection, with a side of coleslaw and corn on the cob to compliment it. Recently I have... More

A family experience with 8 of us. Lobsters, scallops and oysters were the main attraction for all. On the negative side, my oysters were quite small. They don't begin to compare to Arnold's up the rd on Rt 6. Other than that issue, I would definitely return soon. The service was excellent ! Should you go definitely ask to be... More

Lobster Claw was a nice restaurant with pretty good service. The food was good although the oysters were quite small. The onion rings were good and so were the salads. I did not have lobster, so I cannot rate it, though it looked good.

If you're trying to find a great, family friendly atmosphere, look no further. The Lobster Claw definitely exceeded my level of expectation, sea level that is. Every staff member was friendly and the atmosphere was very family oriented. There is a gift shop as well full of fun toys and souvenirs for all ages. Everyone in my party had the... More

We've been to the Lobster Claw many times, and return because we know what to expect. Service is friendly and attentive. I ordered the stuffed shrimp even though on my last visit I criticized it because the stuffing seems to be nothing more than bread crumbs. Yet, inexplicably, it is quite tasty. Of course they should probably not charge so... More

Just came from a wonderful dinner with my family. We had a 15 month old niece with us and this place is made for small diners. From the crayons to fully stocked gift store, dining with a baby was a breeze. Everybody was very friendly and service was efficient. The best part: FOOD. Even for a not so big fried... More

This was our first time at the Lobster Claw and we can't wait to return! We had a few drinks before dinner at the bar and the owner came right up to us and we truly enjoyed his conversation and sense of humor! When we sat at our table he would say a few comments to us, continuously making us... More

My wife and I ate here after arriving in town late one evening, service was fast, friendly, and the food was great! They were closing soon, and we were one of maybe 3 other couples there. Had a couple of beers and the seafood platter, no complaints. We went back the next evening because we liked the food and the... More

On the Cape visiting friends and decided on clambakes. The place was full but they sat our large party pretty quickly. Our waitress was friendly and efficient with cocktails. Most of us had chowder to start and then a clambake. Lobsters were great and the steamers were piled high. Awesome. The great selection of local beers added to a special... More
