Cape Cod Clam Shacks
Feast on scrumptious seafood at one of Cape Cod's clam shacks.
Your Cape Cod vacation wouldn't be complete without treating yourself to a mountain of deep-fried seafood, so cancel your fancy dinner reservations and behold one of New England's wonders of the world—the clam shack.

Lobster rolls can be divisive. Hot with melted butter—or cold with mayo? Forget this age-old debate and come to the Skipper Restaurant and Chowder House; the menu features both. The "Traditional Lobster Roll" is served "the Skipper's way" with four ounces of fresh-made lobster salad on a toasted brioche roll. Those with larger appetites with enjoy Skipper's "Lobster Roll Supreme" with a half-pound of lobster salad on a French roll. "The Wicked Awesome" is a half-pound of fresh lobster served hot with butter on brioche. Cool down after lunch at The Skipper's Ice Cream Shack, featuring specialty sundaes such as The Old Salty Dog, Davy Jones Locker, and more decadent delights.
