The Lobster Claw
Food for Thought
For the past 44 years, owner Don Berig and his family have been serving up broiled, grilled, and fried seafood, steak, burgers, and even gluten-free fare to road-weary travelers and devoted locals. “The Lobster Claw is our life,” says Berig. “We treat our customers like family, and they love us for it.”
Everything at The Lobster Claw is prepared fresh daily. To meet the demand for healthier menu options, light breading and trans-fat-free grease is used for the abundant array of fried food on the menu—without sacrificing taste. The Lobster Claw’s crispy, flavorful onion rings—coupled with the house-made ketchup—can be a meal on their own.
The friendly wait staff at The Lobster Claw is a major component of the restaurant’s approach to customer service. Waitresses navigate the dining room bringing patrons high chairs, extra napkins, and anything the diner may need for their meal. And Berig prides himself on having what he considers the cleanest restaurant on Cape Cod—every night the entire restaurant is cleaned literally from floor to ceiling.
“There’s no big formula like some big corporation would have, but it seems to work,” says Berig. “I love every day that I’m here. At 74 years old, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t my passion.”
The Lobster Claw is an award-winning dining destination on Cape Cod—particularly popular with families of all sizes—and is renowned for fresh ingredients and handcrafted house recipes.
