Right across from our hotel and had great ratings through TripAdvisor?? My pasta was overcooked and fish not that flavorful. My companions food was also just fair. Service a bit slow as they appeared busy. I wish we had tried the Black Cat Tavern instead.

Went for lunch. Great staff and food. Would definitely return. Sat outside and was very comfortable . Right after eating we walked next to the harbor and relaxed. Great location

Was disappointed with the service. Hostess was rude when we asked if we could move to an inside table after she sat us outside as it was a bit chilly out. We ended up leaving and went to another nearby restaurant

Bathrooms are dirty. The service is terrible, waitress was rude and inflexible. The food is average at best.

Usually just have to turn up and wait, but for that size party it's definitely worth a try

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

Spanky's like many other places on the Cape is seasonal. I think Spanky's closes in October.
