Spanky's was a great place to spend a dreary misty evening. The windows offered a great view to watch the harbor. The highlight.... the blackened swordfish! I would highly recommend.

I had the fried clams and hubby had the fish and chips. We both enjoyed it. Very fresh and portions are huge! We had a table outside, over looking the water, which was nice.

Had a great lobster roll and whole belly fried clam roll with so much stuffing we had to use a fork first to eat some before you could pick up the roll to eat. Servers are very friendly and efficient. Great location on the harbour.

Everybody was telling us to go to Spanky's while visiting Cape Cod. We had a hard time finding this place. Great location, right by the water. Food was good.

The best place to get fresh seafood, excellent selection, outdoor patio. Portions are plentiful, prices are in range for what you order. Lobster rolls are the BEST!

Ended up going back several times during our stay in Hyannis. Lobster salad was great, bacon wrapped scallops were good too. Everything was good.

Usually just have to turn up and wait, but for that size party it's definitely worth a try

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
