Our first meal in Hyannis we enjoyed lunch at Spanky’s by the harbor. The Lobster Roll was delicious and a generous portion. The Clam Chowder ended up being the best we had all week! Clams were very tender and soup was perfect.

This was a huge seafood restaurant located near the ferry docks with inside and outside seating. Despite being extremely busy we.were seated within minutes. Portions were huge and both meals we ordered were oustanding. (I couldn't even finish the clam strip dinner I ordered!

Nice big bellies. We ate at another place the next day and the clams did not come close. Spankys is by far the best. I shared a plate with my grandson and there was more than enough. Right on Hyannis harbor, sit inside or outside...More

Waiting for our ferry to Nantucket. We decided to try Soanky's Clam Shack. My friend and I both had lobster rolls. We were wowed with the ample portions. Very delicious. Fries came with it and cole slaw. Great service and fast.

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
