I order fried strip clam to go. It is quick and delicious. You can sit outdoor to enjoy beautiful harbor view, but I had to head back to Boston so I didn't get to enjoy it.

We cannot visit Hyannis without eating at Spanky's. This trip, we ate there 3 out of 5 days. The owners - Billy and Jeff - ensure quality food at reasonable prices. Have never eaten a bad meal in the 7 years we've vacationed on the Cape. The first "must" on this trip (and the last 6) has been the LOBSTER... More

Right across the street from my hotel. Excellent food, I had the crab cakes. In addition I had a bowl of great clam chowder. Very good service even when the place was packed.

Last Sunday afternoon at 4:00 my husband and I walked over to Spanky's, hoping to sit outside under their umbrellas with the beautiful weather. The hostesses said they couldn't seat us at one of the open 6 tables as they were for four-somes, not for couples. We took a buzzer and sat waiting beside the hostess stand for more than... More

We ate here after a long drive from New York, we parked at the municipal car park next door ($4 for two hours), and thought we might have to wait as the outside seating was quite busy. As it turned out we were seated straight away and attended by a very pleasant waitress. We were given time to peruse the... More

So I hate seafood but my husband loves it. He always wanted to try clams and the waitress was kind enough to bring some over for my husband to try before getting it for dinner. He thought the food was great. I ordered chicken fingers since that was one of the few non seafood items. They were terrible, soggy and... More

Was attracted by stuffed quahogs ate a double order of stuffed clams casino a big plate of fried clams ( sensing my love of clams?? ) and washed it all down with a bowl of clam chowder. I would go back tomorrow and do it all again if I could.

First night on the Cape, and Spanky's was recommended. I had the fish and chips, which were very good. The cole slaw could have used a bit more mayo, but the staff was attentive and the place was comfortable!

Thank DianeCL
