Great location by the harbour. Food was OK and not something you would return for. Recommend you go for a drink and share an appetizer.

I love Spanky’s it’s part of our annual trip to the Cape. Their lobster salad and lobster roll are huge and taste amazing. I’m told the rest of the food is pretty good but this is all I ever get. Classic cape place for seafood...More

Food was okay, not worth the price. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Service was great, waitress was as helpful as she could be.

This was our last stop during our cape vacation and it was perfect! Staff was great and the outdoor seating was perfect for us. Margarita's ($12) are OK so just get a beer ($6.25) instead.

I went with some friends to have a seafood dinner. The food was OK but not special (all the seafood was a bit dry) and the portions were modest. Overly expensive for the quality. The surrounding area is lovely though.

We were in town for the night and everyone kept mentioning Spanky’s as the place to go. It was Saturday evening, so we assumed we would wait forever to be seated. To our surprise we were seated inside immediately. If we wanted to sit outside,...More

We went here to cater to my mom’s craving for seafood. We were shocked by the prices but figured the food would be worth it. However, we were disappointed, spending nearly $200 on a family of three. The service was very good, especially considering how...More

We had a very nice lunch in this busy, popular place. The service was excellent, attentive and fast. The seafood we had was very fresh and well prepared. There is an ample offer in the menu and interesting daily specials. The prices are good, too.

I do believe they have gluten-free options however I don't follow those guidelines so you'd best call to find out if it doesn't state on their website which it probably does. Good luck!

I wish I could help, but, honestly, since I order the same thing each time I visit I do not know for sure. I could only suggest you check their website or call them directly to be sure.
