Description: "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.

My wife and I choose not to mingle with young family vacationers and give them space during the summer months. It’s their time to enjoy as we did with our now grown adult children. We can go out of season but the only problem, Arnold’s is usually closed during the week (open weekends). We haven’t been in years, but it’s still the same. GREAT FOOD!!! Who cares about the price? It’s worth it. Hopefully we will go back next year.

This has been a fixture in the Eastham area for years and has consistently good food and lots of it. We LOVE the onion rings, but be forewarned, the order is HUGE. It will take several people to eat them. Trust me, they are worth a trip, but by all means have a sandwich, platter or other treats to go with them. Just remember they are only open during tourist season.

Arnold's is the place too go in Eastham. Seafood and great casual dining. Have been there twice and each meal was different. Shrimp is my favorite.

We haven't had these onion rings in years! Why can't anyone duplicate this taste? A HUGE serving ($7)was enjoyed along with some whole fried clams ($22). Nothing is inexpensive on Cape Cod but this was just delicious. A very clean establishment with lots of counter help. We arrived when they first opened at 11:30 on a Friday in mid September. Days are limited this time of year. The lot filled up fast. We also enjoyed some mini-golf at the rear of the restaurant. A fun lunch!
