I had the broiled scallops and they were delicious! It came with a baked potato and a great salad. The order was abundant and reasonably priced. The onion rings looked delicious also.

Ordering is now improved, with two or at times three registers, and with remote buzzers handed out so people don't stand around the counter waiting for their food. Picnic table area expanded and very nice tables for 8, good for families. The whole system seems...More

We stopped in after visiting the beach. Long line starting outside and a full parking lot at 1:30 is usually a good sign of good food. We were just going to have ice cream because of a local recommendation. We saw the menu and got...More

We visited Arnold's in late June, and waited in line outside for about 25 minutes, but the line moved fast. Our picnic table under a tent was clean, and staff were regularly cleaning and picking up the eating area. Food was very good, better than...More

We were looking forward to a visit to Arnold's while on the Cape after being away for many years. We had a lobster which seemed to be a bit over-cooked. Food is still okay but not worth the long wait. We found that it is...More

Arnolds is the real deal and the whole package! They have good seafood (raw and cooked), great salads, and yummy burgers (literally something for everyone). They also have liquor and ice cream - which in my books is like the perfect dinner spot. The only...More

"Best fried clams in the world"-Food & Wine Magazine. Arnold's seafood is so fresh, any fisherman would approve. Native lobster, local raw bar, cocktails, fried and baked seafood, lobster rolls, salads, an extensive children's menu, gourmet ice cream, and mini golf. Arnold's owner is Nathan "Nick" Nickerson, a true Cape Cod native and Mayflower descendant. Nick grew up surrounded by the sea and worked on farms and with family in Cape Cod restaurants. Almost 40 ago he founded what has become the world-famous Arnold's Lobster & Clam Bar. From the start, crowds were drawn to the fresh, native seafood, generous portions, friendly service and fun Cape Cod atmosphere found at Arnold's. Pets are allowed in our outdoor area in the back.
