We intended to have a late lunch on Patriots day on the deck at Baxter's next door, a restaurant I swore never to come back to after a meal of cold, doughy fried clams and anorexic steamers twenty years ago. But, alas Baxter's was closed. I needed my fried clam fix and Spanky's was open. I'm a fried clam guy... More

We visited Spanky's on our way off the Cape after our visit to P-Town. Although they had just opened for the season the day before, our visit could NOT have been more on point. First of all, can I just say CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! Every spec of this place is freshly painted and scrubbed. And this has been our experience... More

I am over 3,000 miles away in rain swept Lancashire, England and for some strange reason I found myself looking at a webcam of Hyannis Harbour. Just out of shot is Spankys Clam Shack set just across the water, why do I remember it so well. Which we visited over four years ago !!!!!!! I remember searching for some place... More

Every time we're on Cape Cod, we do to Spanky's. Certainly there are other places we could choose to get good seafood in a casual atmosphere at a reasonable enough price. However, Spanky's often wins for a few reasons (1) the location on the water/good view; (2) convenience when visiting other Hyannis attractions; (3) we've never been disappointed with the... More

Good for a quick harborside lunch or dinner. A great place to have good food and watch the harbor activity.

Love Spanky's Clam Shack, the menu is on the expensive side but the portions are generous and the view is lovely. It can get crowded so go between meal time for fast service

We ogled platters going to other tables with awe for the sheer amount of food and variety of seafood offerings. The crab dip and crackers were delicious and we kept asking for more, and the waitress never said nay - she was clearly used to it. We ordered fried cod, shrimp, and crab and enjoyed every bit. Beer is cold,... More

Very busy restaurant but soooo worth the wait. The prices are high but comparable to other restaurants on Cape Cod. However, the serving sizes are larger with many entrees serving 2. The lobster salad had about 2-2 1/2 cups as almost the same for the lobster roll. The chicken platter was huge serving a healthy 6-8 pieces of fried chicken... More
