“Best Fried Clams”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Fabulous outdoor casual dining. We were seated in the owner's section on the waterfront=what a great way to start our vacation! Fried clams are crispy and hot, just delicious.

“Best seafood stew!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

It's about time I have found this hidden gem that makes the most succulent and scrumptious seafood stew loaded with chunks of several types of seafood. Spanky's by far has the best seafood stew I have ventured across and I have tried many different places especially in the Cape including Marshside restaurant in Dennis which was overpriced and disappointing! No need to look any further!

“What's not to love?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Delicious lobster rolls, friend clams, and Bloody Mary's by the sea on Cape Cod. A local told us about this restaurant and it was everything they said it would be. We will return.

“Tasty Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Conveniently located near the ferry terminal, Spankys is a great place to stop for a bite to eat.

The lineup was quite long so on a busy evening be prepared to wait for a seat.

I had the Lobster Roll. It was very fresh tasting and worth having again.

“Fun place with good food and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Spanky's is located right on Hyannis Harbor. It's a great place for family or as a couple. It's lively, busy and friendly. We opted to eat at the bar one night, as the wait was kind of long. But once in, the bartenders were very nice and friendly. They recommended their drink special of the day, which was a rum drink that was tastey and a tad more potent than bars/restaurants concoct. We ate there several times during our stay on "the Cape" and were not disappointed. They actually offer a salmon dip with crackers while you wait for your meal which was absolutely delicious. We asked for a second helping it was so good. It's a trendy, upbeat, busy place that sells tee shirts as well as food. But everything we ordered was very good with generous portions of food. If you're in the area, go check it out.
