5 of the Best Cape Cod Lobster Shacks
Chatham Pier Fish Market
The Chatham Pier Fish Market is perfect for guests who don’t want to venture too far from our inn for a great meal. What makes this one different from the rest of the Cape Cod lobster shacks is that they get their seafood from the water just a few feet from your table! It doesn’t get much fresher than that! They have a variety of seafood dishes to choose from and if you are in a hurry, be sure to call ahead.
Mac’s Chatham Fish and Lobster
Mac’s Chatham Fish and Lobster is the newest addition to the Mac’s Seafood Family on Cape Cod, and is a neighbor of the Chatham Fish and Lobster Seafood Market. You’ll love their casual atmosphere and delicious selection. Some of our favorites include fried calamari, sauteed local clams, and of course, the Mac’s Clam Chowder!
Arnold’s Lobster and Clam Bar
If you are looking for some of the best fried seafood in Cape Cod, then look no further than Arnold’s Lobster and Clam Bar. The vibe at Arnold’s is light, fun, and family-friendly. Before you sit down to eat, work up an appetite at their 18-hole miniature golf course. In addition to famous fried dishes, the menu also includes salads, steamed entrees, and a delicious raw bar.
The Lobster Pot
The Lobster Pot easily makes the list of best Cape Cod Lobster Shacks for its central location in Provincetown and amazing views of the harbor. Not only do they serve traditional lobster dishes, but they add their own flair to create memorable seafood dishes worthy of indulgence. You’ll be sure to enjoy lobster in many ways including lobster ravioli, lobster tacos, lobster cakes and many more. Be sure to also check out their extensive drinks menu. They’ll even help you find the perfect cocktail, wine, or beer to pair with your meal!
The Cape Sea Grille
If you are looking for a fun, romantic night out, The Cape Sea Grille in Harwich Port is a wonderful choice for dinner. Located in a renovated sea captain’s home, this setting is ideal for couples who want to relax and enjoy a sumptuous meal. They have a great selection of lobster dishes, but the one that is highly preferred is their pan seared whole lobster. It’s not too often you get to eat all of a lobster, as well as one that has been cooked with a Calvados-Saffron reduction. Be sure to check out their amazing wine menu too!
