Came here for lunch and had the lobster salad sandwich with a side of French fries. It was very tasty and the portion of lobster salad on the sandwich was very generous and tasted fresh. Great spot for lunch and they have great cocktails too.

Stopped at the Lobster Claw for lunch while visiting Cape Cod. Nice looking older restaurant with a good seafood array. Service was very good. I had fresh local broiled halibut which was very good.
