Stumbled upon this great place after a day of touring Cape Cod. Fish and Chips were perfectly done with a generous serving of fish. Whole belly clans were delicious and not rubbery at all! Good prices, good service

Wanted to eat outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. We had Lobster Bisque and split the seafood platter. The bisque was delicious with large chunks of lobster. The platter was good too! Great service and quick turnaround on food.

Our favourite restaurant in Hyannis. The best seafood around and good value as well......only criticism would be that they were a little eager to shut down for the evening

Nice eatery right next to harbor tour boat entrance. We ate outside and had a great waitress. Fresh steamer clams were so tasty. So were fried whole belly clams. Can't get much better!

Modestly priced restaurant right on the water. Generous fish and chips plus side of fried whole belly clams that were incredibly tender. Great service and lots of outdoor seating.

Whoops! I just answered your question and said yes. Correction, Spanky's does have lobster rolls on their menu, however, it does not specify if they are the hot butter kind. If you really want the hot butter lobster rolls... More
