Delicious fried lobster and Lobster Newburg. Service was great! No crowds at all but it is off season. Would definitely come back!

This restaurant was awesome! The food was delicious and service was great. The atmosphere was very comfortable and laid back. The Cape Cod Blonde beer was so good and I wish I could buy that particular beer outside of the Orleans, Massachusetts area. Would definitely recommend this great place for others to eat at and enjoy time with family and... More

Lunch at the Lobster Claw was great. Lobster club was tasty and the fried lobster was not greasy but oh so fresh.

Chowder was good, not great. Fried seafood platter was just OK.. Clams were over cooked. Onion rings were not worth the $9.99 price. They are Over priced for what you get. Total bill for 2 people with tip $90.00. Will not go back.

Haven't been there for a while but I used to have lunch there many times and always enjoyed my meal. I particularly liked the fried lobster. I hope that they are serving food as good as it was back when.

Ate here for lunch on a stop over drive to the Lower Cape. The seating area is just big enough for you to enjoy a quick lunch. The food was excellent. I had the Lobster Roll and my daughter had the Crab Roll. Both were excellent - made perfectly. Value for what you get is amazing. A must stop.

Great steamers, scallops, and blueberry beer! Hard to beat the quality. And really good service - Heidi was our server. Steamers well-prepared, without a hint of sand.

Been to this Orleans landmark many times. Something seems to be sliding. Food was ok, not really all that hot. Service, again ok, but we felt like we were a bother. We've had many very good family meals here, but the last two times just haven't been the same. Best described as "nothing special".
