We went down to the cape last weekend and we went to the Lobster Claw - which is our favorite summer spot for our meal. It was just as good as it was during the summer! Can't wait to go back!

This restaurant was warm and cheerful with good quality seafood in large portions. Just what we needed on a cool rainy day. I ordered blueberry pie for dessert and it arrived warm and with whipped cream.

Had a terrific meal at the Lobster Claw! We visit every time we go to the Cape and it's always great. I had the boiled lobster -served with an ear of corn French fries and cole slaw. My son loves the fried clams and clam chowder.

My husband and I went to the Lobster Claw last week and were disappointed. My husband ordered the $30.00 baked stuffed lobster which was over done and stuffed with breadcrumbs and butter- that's it. I got the baked stuffed shrimp, and though the shrimp (four of them) were not overdone, again they were stuffed with breadcrumbs and butter, nothing else.... More

If you want to experience true Cape Cod dining, this is THE restaurant! Classic Cape Cod, charming decor, super friendly service and amazing food! The Clam Chowder was creamy and chock full of clams, the fried clams sweet and delicious and the Lobster Roll was the best I've ever eaten. And, you HAVE to try the cole slaw. I usually... More

I've been going to the Claw since I was five years old, and this place is special. Owner operated. The guy's grand-daughter might be your hostess. Never had a better lobster, also love the Lobster Newberg and in recent years there's lots of fancy salads for people who like such things. This is the real Cape Cod. And they now... More
