We had our rehearsal dinner here on the Cape and it was the perfect way to kick off a Cape Cod wedding...we loved that they had a clam bake option and the upstairs private dining room is so darn Cape Cod Cute. ...would definitely recommend!

We ate at the Lobster Claw the first night of our Cape Cod trip after 12 hours of travel from Virginia. My wife had Lobster Newburch and I had Baked Scallops, both entrees were delicious. The restaurant has great food but is not fancy.

Every trip to Provincetown, required a meat at the Lobster Claw. Great location right in the center of town by the pier with a great view

We always make this one of our first stops on the Cape. We are sure to take advantage of the Early Bird Special, you can't beat it. Dinner, soup, beverage and dessert for the price of the entree.

My husband and I had the lobster rolls and could not believe the amount of lobster meat that we received! I almost could not finish everything there was so much lobster meat, it was wonderful! Our waitress was great and the restaurant was very clean....More

Prices are high for fried baskets, I’d rather have non fried but that was more $$. Cute place, great service, but still disappointed.

Nice , but lacking in basic condiments . Price high, food frozen not fresh. Better places to eat. Help good, but rushes you. Pass on this one.

Had the fisherman's platter. What a disappointment. Everything kind of tasted the same. The fish was a bunch of bite size pieces instead of a nice big piece. The fried claims were dry and the bellies were almost non-existent.
