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

The food is good. We had the fried clams fries, etc. Expensive for clam shack. Sit outside on picknic tables. If money isn't an issue for you then go & enjoy.

I stayed for everything else! I enjoyed my dinner here and don't have anything bad to say about it. Fresh seafood with a view of the water. I visited twice during my stay in the area.

Our first stop on the first day of our vacation. The Clam chowder was amazing, but that lobster roll! Oh my! The only bad thing I can say is, We arrived October 15th, which was their last day of the "season". I'm from the south, so did not realize restaurants, stores, and even major tourist attractions "close" from mid-October to... More

The clam chowder was a tasty starter as was the 'Wicked Seafood Stew'. However the Lobster salad was amazing. The portion of lobster was enormous and was without the shell. Fortunately we had decided to share it. It was so fresh and delicious. Best ever.

Sooooo.....the best steamers you will ever have! Service is good 9 times out of 10. The younger servers are not that great so we request our favorites. The scallops are great too.
