Heard so much about this place. Got lucky and won a gift certificate last year. Called to make sure my certificate was still good. But couldn'the get an answer. Since it was a 2 hr. drive we wanted to be sure. It was a nice...More

We tried to order take out. They didn't answer their phone because they were so busy. Needless to say, we went to the restaurant and brought it back. Very good though.

Great kids menu and they were served on a frisbee you keep!!! Great menu for those who may not enjoy seafood. This is a place we have eaten at every year and it never dissapoints!!

The food is overpriced and over-fried. What passes as typical outer Cape food, even this put the bar at a new low point for shoveling garbage at tourists. $30 for a lobster roll? Are you nuts? Give it a pass

Once a year, regardless of 90 degree whether I need a nice cup of New England Clam Chowder. This place made my taste buds remember why I love the Cape so much. It's a super casual eatery with all the summer seafood must haves. The...More

Big and well-maintained. Always a line, usually a long one. Place your order, pay your bill- cash or check only, but no worry, there are ATMs conveniently placed-and wait for your order. Very well organized, plenty of seating, it is too bad the food fails...More

If you see a line.... it's worth the wait. If you don't see a line- Go immediately. Year after year it's great. Consistent, clean and just super.

We stopped in based on the trip advisor ratings for a great lobster roll and it was a great decision. Lobster and scallop roll were both fantastic!! It is fast food style ordering at the counter and given your tray of food but food quality...More

"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.
