So many other places to try . . .
Swordfish was dry and tasteless. Lobster newberg was nothing special.
Lesson learned: it is always worth reading reviews . . .

We stopped here on a trip home from nearby Nauset beach. The chowder was good and so was the lobster roll. The fries weren't all that great - thin and crunchy. My husband had the salmon sandwich and rated it as "good." Bottom line: you can get better elsewhere, but if you have a big family and want something basic, this place may do ok.

I am very fond of this place ! We come up to the Cape every year to visit my wife's family. This is the place they always come as locals and we always come as visitors... it simply is not a visit unless I get here for some Yummy Bugs... Been here dozens of times and there is only one thing I have ever ordered... Lobster. It's also very wheelchair an walker friendly

Save your money and hunt down a good seafood place. The only thing I enjoyed was the tossed salad. The scallops were okay, not succulent. The stuffing for the shrimp was way too sweet. Came here with my family; we all agreed that it was not worth the money. Too bad.

Not recommended. Typical lobster/seafood menu for the cape. The boiled lobster was mediocre. No choices in size, which is embarrassing for a place named the lobster claw! Seriously, 1.25 pounders only?

Baked stuffed lobster basically consisted of stuffing from the local supermarket baked on top of the lobster tail. Seriously. Fish dishes were basic and ok. Fries were frozen ones from supermarket at best.

Service was generally ok. Prices were fair for overpriced seafood on the cape. Location on 6a is good in Orleans. Lobster themed gift shop is cute.

Go elsewhere.... Like Sir Crickets, Cookes, or Lobster Pound. Meh.
