Post Ragnar Hunger

Food was great and the service was friendly. The steamers were tasty and the Bloody Mary is highly recommended. The port wine cheese was even good holdover until the food arrived. The lobster club was a hit.

Travelling to the outer cape in May can be a challenge finding an open restaurant. Nothing open that I wanted to have and decided to stop here since I have seen the adds for years. While we were waiting to place our order all I could smell were the onion rings at the next table and had to order them.... More

My wife and I had a wonderful meal last night at the Lobster Claw. The lobster salad is the best We have tasted. The service was attentive yet not overbearing. The prices were reasonable which would allow a family to dine there modestly. One of the best family style restaurants on the Cape. Highly recommended

Had dinner here tonight (5/3). It was excellent. Service was quick and friendly. Wendy was our server and she was wonderful. Of course I had the boiled lobster dinner and it was cooked to perfection. Corn on the cob and cole slaw and fries were just the right complement to the meal. The owner, Don, was stopping at every table... More

Winter is finally gone, The Lobster Claw is open. Best steamers around along with incredible lobster dinners. The atmosphere is always welcoming, facilities clean, staff friendly and always checking back to make sure you have everything - a great place to dine.
