Spanky's Clam Shack Restaurant Review: Hyannis Harbor is lined with outdoor joints offering similar menus of fried seafood and family-friendly sandwiches. A standout in the crowd, Spanky's has a full raw bar as well as a great view of the ferries as they shuttle visitors to and from Martha's Vineyard. Grab a patio table and enjoy made-to-order fried clams, clam rolls and crab cakes. Or settle in for some of the fancier fare like stuffed sole with lobster sauce, bouillabaisse or a “lazy man's" lobster dinner. For land lovers, there are burgers, steaks and wraps; a full children's menu is available, too. Desserts are decadent, with American classics like a Key lime pie and “wicked good” chocolate cake. The restaurant also offers a full bar with a serious cocktail menu. It makes an ideal spot to gather at sunset for drinks, although you might have to wait for an outdoor table in the high season.
