Description: "Best fried clams in the world"-Food & Wine Magazine. Arnold's seafood is so fresh, any fisherman would approve. Native lobster, local raw bar, cocktails, fried and baked seafood, lobster rolls, salads, an extensive children's menu, gourmet ice cream, and mini golf. Arnold's owner is Nathan "Nick" Nickerson, a true Cape Cod native and Mayflower descendant. Nick grew up surrounded by the sea and worked on farms and with family in Cape Cod restaurants. Almost 40 ago he founded what has become the world-famous Arnold's Lobster & Clam Bar. From the start, crowds were drawn to the fresh, native seafood, generous portions, friendly service and fun Cape Cod atmosphere found at Arnold's. Pets are allowed in our outdoor area in the back.

Great seafood place, very casual, family place, not for a quiet and lengthy meal,.
But can't beat the lobster, steamers, and the raw bar.
Lobster Rolls are great too, but you can get those other places.

Arnolds has been a reliable favorite well known on the Cape for as long as I can remember. They're conveniently on Rt. 6 and easy to find. Food has always been high quality. When we visited 9/2013, we both had 'double' lobster rolls with warm butter which were such a treat. Somehow, we saved room for ice cream. They carry it from local Richardson's Dairy. It is hard, high quality ice cream and the prices are quite fair. For the volume you get, you'd pay double at nearby Ben & Jerry's. We ret'd again in same week just for the ice cream. Arnold's is a casual restaurant with counter service. It's clean, updated and we always look forward to next summer's trip.

Every summer on our family vacation to the Cape we make sure to stop at Arnolds. I usually get the jumbo lobster roll and lets just say jumbo is an understatement. It is the best lobster roll I have ever had. Everything at Arnolds is always fresh and delicious. Yes the lines are usually long, but your on vacation so relax and enjoy the atmosphere...

This is a convenient seafood place where you order at a counter and sit on casual at times noisy tables. Zero atmosphere but great food. I went back three times in 2 weeks to get the lobster roll.
Go early if you can so the line is shorter for ordering. At times it is very hard to park.
