Spanky's Clam Shack Restaurant Review: Outdoor joints offering similar menus of fried seafood and family-friendly sandwiches line Hyannis Harbor, but Spanky's is a standout. It's got a full raw bar as well as a 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 baked, stuffed shrimp, lobster ravioli or a “lazy man's" lobster dinner. For land lovers, there are burgers with crisp fries, chicken piccata, and vegetarian pasta. Desserts are 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.
