Must-Try Restaurants in Hyannis, MA

Spanky’s Clam Shack and Seaside Saloon

Visit Spanky’s and experience a little bit of “Old Cape Cod.” Spanky’s overlooks Hyannis Harbor and is close to all the stores, shops and activities on Main Street. The seafood is all locally caught and harvested. You will want to try all the New England favorites like the award-winning clam chowder, fish & chips or lobster dinner to name a few.

The Naked Oyster

Naked Oyster is a French bistro on Cape Cod! The menu showcases dishes utilizing fresh and local products. The chef here works closely with farmers on Cape Cod to bring the best seasonal ingredients and local seafood from farm to plate daily.


Anejo is conveniently located in the heart of Main Street. You will enjoy al fresco dining while watching the crowds pass by. The outdoor bar is fun day or night. They also have a full dinner menu in a beautiful dining room with vaulted ceilings. If you are in the mood for something more casual check out the lounge and enjoy a smoky mezcal.
