We have been going here for the last 7 years for our daughter's birthday dinner in Oct. They close for the season in Oct and reopen in April...I love the seafood dip they serve with crackers for the dinner crowd...This is our Cape Cod road trip every year.

Spanky's is by far one of the premier seafood restaurants in Hyannis. Great Food, Great Service! Never had a bad meal. The Lobster Rolls and the Lobster Bisque makes it a special event!

It is always a sad day when they close for the season!! But we can look forward to April when they reopen. They serve the freshest seafood, cooked and prepared to perfection. Lobster salad is great and the serving portion is extremely generous. Simply the best!!!

This is such a popular place whether you choose to eat inside or out. Right on the waterfront surrounded by boats, there is a buzzing atmosphere that makes it feel like fun at this place. We had a bottle of wine and ordered clam chowder that was about $6 followed by scallops and bacon which was about $14. Our server... More

Would love to go back and sit outside and... More

In the height of the summer season it can be a bit of a wait, but once you've tasted their delicious seafood you will think like me... it's worth the wait!

I have found this restaurant to be a good bet when you're looking for a nice seafood meal. It is in a location near the water and offers patio seating. I would definitely recommend for an enjoyable lunch.
