This was a welcome meal after a long ride. While it did have a 40 minute wait the experience was excellent. The seafood was fresh and the staff was very friendly/professional. An excellent stop for a family.

Sit outside for great water front view. There is a shorter wait for inside table. My group ordered steamers, fried whole belly clams, fried seafood sampler platter and blackened cod. All dishes had very large portions and were delicious!

This restaurant is ideally located on the waterfront. There is inside and outside seating and the food is outstanding particularly the seafood. The service is great and the desserts are also excellent. If you go try the Lemonchello cake.

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

Spanky's like many other places on the Cape is seasonal. I think Spanky's closes in October.
