Where to go and What to Order: Best Seafood In and Around Hyannis

Sure, you may have a list of seafood restaurants in Cape Cod you want to try out, but do you know what to order? When dining in Hyannis, use our guide for ordering the restaurant’s best seafood dish, so you won’t leave feeling disappointed you ordered something you could have made at home!

Naked Oyster

A Hyannis favorite, the Naked Oyster is a quaint little bistro serving up creative seafood dishes. With their own oyster beds in the harbor, you know the seafood you are getting here is fresh and tasty.

Must-Have: Really anything from their raw bar menu is perfection as their oysters are caught and prepared daily.

Captain Parker’s Pub

Voted several times as the “best chowder in Cape Cod”, Captain Parker’s Pub is a casual joint where locals have come for years to hang out and enjoy classic New England fare.

Must-Have: It goes without saying, but you must try the award-winning classic, New England Clam Chowder.

Sesuit Harbor Cafe

Nestled away from the crowds is Sesuit Harbor Café. Located waterside in Cape Cod Bay, this hidden gem brings life into their hefty portions. While located about 20 minutes outside of Hyannis, we think this spot is worth the drive!

Must-Have: The main reason people venture out to this seaside shack is for their lobster roll. Bring your appetite as this sandwich comes with 6 oz. of lobster meat, plus a side of fries and coleslaw.

Black Cat Tavern

A casual spot with million-dollar views of the Hyannis Harbor, their seafood menu is extensive and impressive. A great place to hang out and listen to live music during the summer.

Must-Have: Yes, of course, try their award-winning chowder but also be sure to try their baked scallops.

Spanky’s Clam Shack & Seaside Saloon

Enjoy harbor views and New England style meals at Spanky’s Clam Shack, which has been voted several times over the years as “best seafood restaurant” in Mid-Cape.

Must-Have: While lobster rolls are popular fare in Cape Cod, try their lobster salad for a lighter taste on a local classic.

Roadhouse Cafe

Cozy up at The Roadhouse Café where fine dining meets a casual setting with classic nautical details. A favorite in Hyannis, their Italian-inspired seafood dishes are some of the best in town.

Must-Have: Sample some of their award-winning clam chowder or fill your belly with their lobster ravioli.

28 Atlantic

Celebrate an anniversary or just enjoy a special evening out at 28 Atlantic. With their formal atmosphere, they serve up modern American dishes all while patrons can take in expansive views of the bay.

Must-Have: Really you can’t go wrong with any dish on the menu, but the roasted cod and the day boat scallops should be at the top of the list.

The Daily Paper

For a no-frills local joint, head out to The Daily Paper. Serving only breakfast and lunch, this is one restaurant where you will feel right at home.

Must-Have: If there for breakfast the lobster benedict is can’t be missed and if there for lunch try their classic fish sandwich.

Sea Street Cafe

Keep it low-key at the Sea Street Café where you can enjoy breakfast all day and mingle with the locals.


A great place to enjoy traditional New England seafood dishes, the fish tacos, and Cape Cod benedict are savory treats that give you a real taste of the area.
