Relaxed Sunday lunch. Great service and amazing seafood. Nice layout and great view. Good value too. Half size is plenty for lunch.

We were lucky to find a parking spot, someone just pulled out. My wife had whole fried clams and I had fried shrimp. Both excellent, too large a portion for me must be getting old.

We came on what is a slow period. I cannot imagine this place in high season! The tables are very close together. We were seated promptly. The server was friendly. We ordered a light late lunch of 2 seafood stews. It boasted shrimp, cod, scallops...More

We had a casual dinner there and the fried clams we very fresh and not greasy . Steamers were also great. Service was friendly and priced reasonably.Fun place for a casual dinner.

We went for my wife's birthday. The seafood wasn't fresh, my wife had lobster which appeared to be reheated in the microwave. The dish I had was over cooked and flavorless. Needless to say this is a way over priced tourist trap.

Went to Spanky;s for dinner and was not impressed at all, it was a nice place, typical of the seafood restaurants of Cape Cod, but nothing special. Had what turned out to be a super spicy baked clam, great if you are into super spicy,...More

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.
