Lobster Claw

Lats night Rich and I ventured out for our annual lobster dinner at in Orleans. Lobster ClawAs we were entering our second summer here a very nice gentleman showed up at the inn and introduced himself as Don from The Lobster Claw. He gave us an envelope witha certificate for two free dinners of our choice. What a great marketing idea. I may not have gone there however knowing that we needed to educate ourselves on all the local restaurants we decided we need to give it a try. The restaurant has a real Cape Cod feel. There were picnic tables inside lot’s of fish nets hanging from the ceiling with shells and buoys. Much to my surprise when I stared up at all this netting I found it to be amazingly clean. It is clearly a great family restaurant. Last nights experience was once again as special as the first. Lobster Dinner. Don, the owner is there every day and night welcoming guests. He has been there for 44 years. That’s pretty amazing. The restaurant has a small bar area, a second dining room and a gift shop that has pretty much everything pertaining to lobsters. Although I refer to it as a family restaurant, I tell each and everyone of my guests that come to the Old Manse Inn that if they are looking for a lobster dinner it is the only place to dine. Now they also have a great menu IMG_0441[1] with a large variety of fish both fried broiled, salads and sandwiches.
As we drove back to the Old Manse Inn we couldn’t help but drive down to the beach and catch the last of the sun setting. sunset Cape Cod…a wonderful place to live and for those who can’t live here please come for a visit. We still have several available rooms
