We weren't very hungry, so we just had a bowl of the clam chowder, which was excellent -- a full meal. Our server was very friendly and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Went to this restaurant for lunch. We ordered the lobster. One of the things it was to come with was corn. One of us doesn't like corn and asked for it to be replaced with broccoli. The response was that broccoli would have to be paid for as an extra since it was 'al la carte'. Two things here -... More

Don B, Owner at Lobster Claw, responded to this review

I'm sorry for leaving you with a subpar impression of us -- I wish you'd been more pleased with our service. The truth is that those two sides actually are priced differently on our menu -- our corn on the cob is $4.45 while our broccoli is $4.95 which is why you would have been charged the extra fifty cents....

We stopped at the Lobster Claw for lunch during our recent stay in Eastham. The food was delivered to us rather quickly, but the portions were small compared to other restaurants we had visited. Our waitress seemed less than interested in serving us, a disappointment.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your time or meal too much. It's a shame you didn't feel well-taken care of, either. I never want our guests to feel slighted in any way, so I will look into this immediately to ensure this doesn't happen again. Best, Don Berig, Owner More

The Lobster Claw never disappoints my family and I when we go to eat there. The staff are always so nice and the food is great. Hands down best chowder around! It is also a great place for kids, and they even have a gift shop! Would recommend theLobster Claw for a great family meal.

I took my wife to the Lobster Claw Restaurant in Orleans on Cape Cod for our one year anniversary and we had lobsters with fresh corn and cole slaw. Not only was the food delicious but the service was great as well! The manager even came out and congratulated us on our anniversary! If you are ever on Cape Cod... More

The lovely older couple who own the lobster claw can often be seen taking guests to their tables, helping out the servers or cleaning up at closing time. The food is fresh and really good, and it's nice to see such a happy, couples run restaurant that's been around longer than my parents!

I've read some really bad reviews here, and wonder what was up with those folks. We had a pleasant meal; everyone had seafood except for my teenage son, who lives for cheeseburgers. It's a little pricey, but hey, this is summer on the Cape -- what do you expect? Service was friendly and quick.

The best clam strips and lobster roll around. Casual atmosphere. A place where the old time Cape Codders hang out.

Is there ever a thing as too much lobster? Not at this place. It was such a cute restaurant with a tastefully decorated interior. We both had the lobster claw sandwich (rather than the traditional lobster roll) which had huge pieces of lobster and it was very filling and delish. The customer service was amazing - we felt very welcome... More
