Haven't been to Tugboats in years. Decent view or Hyannis Harbor. Happened to be a warm night so seating facing West wasn't that good of an idea. Had the seafood platter $30 well worth it, Others had oysters, lobsters. Best of all I had a nice 8oz martini to cool me down.

This was the only place we went back to all week. The fried clams were so fresh and so well prepared that they melted in our mouths. The view of the Hyannis Harbor is great, nice and relaxing. Servers were super friendly.

This place is a a bit on a strange location (on the north side of the Hyannis harbour), but it is quite a nice place. Good food and friendly staff. Menu showed something for everybody. Outside seating is available, with great views over the harbour.

I went there with my 2 teenage children. One ordered the steak tip salad ($24) which was a bed of lettuce, crumbled blue cheese, and some steak tips (which were over cooked). Myself and my other child ordered the lobster roll. They were good, not great. Especially at $28 each. I wouldn't go back to spend $100 and sit on... More

Great service! They were able to accommodate a multitude of food allergies. Lobster, scallops, lobster roll .... all delicious. I bit pricier than other locations though would highly recommend.

We ate here for the first time and I am not certain I will be back. I had a pastrami sandwich which was not very good. The pastrami was over cooked, the bread was well over buttered or oiled. It was not worth what was charged. My wife had a fish sandwich that she enjoyed. The view was nice, dissapointing... More

Go to the bar and get a great view of the harbor. See the ferry and fast boat going over to Nantucket. And the food is good too. Get the local fish, clams or lobster.
