We had a late dinner upon arriving in Hyannis. We chose Spanky's and it did not disappoint. They accommodated our large party. Service was fast, food was delicious and the wait staff were very nice.

Great spot to sit outside on the water. Good variety of food on the menu. I had the swordfish special topped with lobster and it was delicious. Good place to get a "fun" drink!

Spanky's like many other places on the Cape is seasonal. I think Spanky's closes in October.
