No one talks about Spinnaker's so we hadn't tried it. We sauntered in on a walk and realized it was closing at 5pm and for the season, so we decided to get dinner while the getting was good. We had he clam-palooza--and it was really good--a clam roll, chowder, and we had baked stuffed clams to replace the clam cakes... More

We had the lobster salad as our lunch and enjoyed the meal very much. In the afternoon we returned for a "small" ice cream dish. Large portions and relaxing atmosphere. Very friendly.

We went in for a little local flavor before heading to the airport. It was a Sunday, off season about 4. No waiting, I had the lobster roll, my friend: the hamburger and fries. She loved hers. My lobster had a ton of meat on it. But seemed to lack flavor. It was nice it was not smothered in mayo.... More

They are meaty, have no mayo and minimal seasoning. All chunky fresh lobster meat on a toasted hotdog roll. Priced fairly.

We waited on line for 15 minutes to order our food. Once we ordered and paid it they told us it was a 30 minute wait for food. 45 minutes later they brought out our food. 2 clam rolls and a green submarine sandwich. The clams were SO overcooked and the avocado on the sandwich (or at least I think... More

We recently stopped by Spinnaker's to pick-up a sandwich to enjoy on our boat. We ordered "The Ferry." The menu listed the primary ingredient as "grilled chicken." I am not 100% sure how the chicken was cooked, but it was definitely not grilled....maybe boiled. Either way, it was awful. Even my husband didn't like it, and he will typically eat... More

Went there twice, had the chicken wrap, it was so so. The next time I had the whole belly clam roll. The clams were over cooked, the frying oil was a day old. They were surved on a hot dog roll and nothing else, no tarter sauce, very dry. Their ice cream is very good. The food is bad.

Nothing wrong with mass market ice cream but some is better than others, and none of it is as good as homemade! We think they serve Richardson's brand, which was ok. Line was a bit slow but being on the waterfront is nice. Unfortunately there aren't other ice cream shops in town, although a supposedly excellent one is farther north... More
