Food That Fulfills

Randi Baird Stepping into the 41-year-old Lobster Claw in Orleans, a quintessential Cape dining scene fills the senses. Take a seat in one of their three dining rooms, each complete with fish netting on the ceiling and marine-style artwork on the walls, and prepare yourself for a hearty meal that is sure to satisfy. Begin with a cup of creamy New England clam chowder ($4.95) or a bowl of mussels, served with a hearty and delicious garlic broth ($10.95)—both preludes to the fantastic entrées to follow. Whether boiled, fried, or stuffed, the restaurant delivers the kind of superb lobster that the Cape is known for. Their expertise does not stop there, however—try the haddock, fried to crispy perfection, served with fries and the restaurant’s sweet yet tangy coleslaw ($17.95). With such a large selection of tasty surf and turf, coupled with great children’s specials and exceptionally friendly service, it is no wonder why the Lobster Claw is a great Cape classic for the entire family.
