Clambakes & More | A Guide to Cape Cod Seafood Dining

As you start planning your vacation to Cape Cod and Lighthouse Inn, it won’t take long to discover the wealth of adventure that awaits. From soaking in the sunshine at a local beach to making memories during a family reunion, there’s no shortage of things to do and see. Just like you never have to worry about getting bored, you also never have to worry about going hungry. Our slice of Cape Cod is home to countless restaurants serving up all kinds of cuisine, but especially fresh seafood.

There are plenty of different ways to dine on fresh, local seafood. To help you discover all of your options, our local team has put together a guide of where to eat when craving everything from lobster rolls to clams.

Experience a Classic Cape Cod Clambake

There’s no more authentic seafood dining experience than a Cape Cod clambake. Bringing this meal to life involves a few easy steps, including digging a pit, building a fire to make rocks nice and hot, and steaming the food. Our menu features all of the ingredients you’d expect to find in a clambake, like lobster, steamed mussels and clams, corn on the cob, potatoes, and more. Don’t worry about the non-seafood eating members of your family/group, as there are additional options for them as well.

This dining experience is offered on Wednesdays from July through August. We highly recommend extending your stay so you can partake in one of these events. For more information, including details and pricing, email jfurnari@lighthouseinn.com.

Other Ways to Enjoy Delicious Seafood

Our fantastic clambakes aren’t the only way to try local seafood. There are several restaurants near our West Dennis resort that plate up a variety of dishes focused on using fresh ingredients.

If you’re looking to try a tasty lobster roll, head to Waterfront Restaurant, our on-site dining room and patio, or Seafood Sam’s. For incredible fish and chips, try Olympia Restaurant & Tavern or Kream n Kone.
