With so many great seafood restraunt choices throughout the Cape what makes this a favorite is the view. Some how atmophere effects our mood. A fine dining restraunt we seem to wear our nicer clothing and use our best table manners. Going to our favorite place for pizza a cold beer seems appropriate while waiting. There people dress in jeans... More

We were the only couple in the restaurant and sat out on the deck enjoying the harbor. Clam chowder was good. Nachos were too huge to finish.

Having a seafood lover and a non-seafood lover eating in Cape Cod has it challenges. Tugboat was a great solution for us. We had a oyster plater for one and a steak dinner for the other. Both were delicious.. Service was outstanding,

You have to look hard for this place, but it is worth it. The bar is perched above a marina looking out over Hyannis Harbor. If you sit at the bar or the adjoining tables you can view the activities of the marina and harbor. We had lunch and cocktails on a sunny and warm September afternoon and watched the... More

I had dinner in the bar at Tugboats on the harbor in Hyannis. The view was fantastic from the upstairs bar. I had the lobster overdose and it was excellent.

Where can you get a nice portion of surf / turf for this price with a stunning view of the Hyannis Marina / harbor? Make sure not to miss this "hidden gem" which is nestled back in off the Main Street of Hyannis. Can't beat the views, the food, and if you're lucky to be there during a sunset -... More

Tugboats is a restaurant and bar with a wonderful view of Hyannis harbor from the quiet side of the harbor. So you are not subject to the crowds waiting to get on or just getting off the ferries to the islands. You can watch all of that activity from the peace and quiet of the other side of the harbor....

Haven't been to Tugboats in years. Decent view or Hyannis Harbor. Happened to be a warm night so seating facing West wasn't that good of an idea. Had the seafood platter $30 well worth it, Others had oysters, lobsters. Best of all I had a nice 8oz martini to cool me down.

This was the only place we went back to all week. The fried clams were so fresh and so well prepared that they melted in our mouths. The view of the Hyannis Harbor is great, nice and relaxing. Servers were super friendly.

My husband and I both had steak tips with vegetables and he had fries. It was so so tasty and perfectly cooked I can't say enough good things about it it's actually hard to find good food on the Cape believe it or not that is not fish. This was tasty and everything was perfectly cooked I also had a... More
