“BEST LOBSTER ROLL EVER”

The Raw Bar on Ocean Street
Ranked #31 of 216 Restaurants in Hyannis
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$30 - US$200
Cuisines: Seafood
Description: Barbados Bob was on a diplomatic journey to the United States from his home in the Caribbean. His small ship sailed along idyllically on a beautiful moonlit night. Suddenly the sky darkened and the ship was unexpectedly caught in a squall. Barbados Bob was swept off the top deck by a mighty wave into the sea. All through the night, his faithful crew searched for him to no avail. Little did they know the Barbados Bob had been rescued by a Mermaid and brought to the shores of Cape Cod. As she dropped him off safely on the shore she whispered in his ear, "You shall open a Raw Bar and sell the freshest seafood in the land." Come and see why the Raw Bar has been voted the home of the number one lobster roll in New England by Billy Costa of the TV Diner, Channel 5's Chronicle, The Phantom Gourmet, V.B, and Maria of Fox News.

The hot buttered lobster roll is amazing. I'm not a fan of the usual lobster rolls with the mayo and celery so to be able to find a roll like this made me so excited. The lobster meat is huge and plentiful, the bread is delicious, and the butter that goes on top makes it one of the best things I have ever eaten in my life. This place is not fancy, so don't go there dressed up or expect all the glitz and glam.. It's right on the Hyannis harbor where the MV/Nantucket ferries take off. It has indoor/outdoor seating, with a cool upper deck overlooking the harbor. The lobster bisque is also the best bisque I have ever had. I can't wait to come here again, and may have to make a trip back to Cape Cod just to come here!!!!

Their lobster rolls are the best. They are available with butter or mayonnaise. Get the mayo. It holds the lobster together. We share one 12 ounce lobster roll and onion rings. That is enough for two. If you are still hungry after that you can always order another one. I skipped eating the bun. I think one of the guys at the next table ordered one without a bun. They gave us two plates and a knife to split the order.
The restaurant is located next to the pier and HyLine Cruises. There is outside seating as well as inside seating.

I came here after reading reviews of how good the lobster rolls are and I have to say everyone was right! I came here almost every day of my stay on the cape, the rum punch is everything! This is definitely one of my favorite places on the cape because of the lobster rolls, the drinks, the vibe and the service. Can't wait to come back this summer. My boyfriend is also excited to try this place since I haven't stopped raving about it. Enjoy!

The best lobster roll I ever had was at a little seafood shack called the Raw Bar at Mashpee, Massachusetts. On a visit to Cape Cod, the Gastro Jedi entered a quest to find a better lobster roll. The best lobster roll of 2016 was from the Raw Bar in Hyannis. It beat all the competition in terms of quantity, quality, and flavor. They are generous with the drawn butter, too. I ate at least one lobster roll a day for six days at various locations across Cape Cod and the Raw Bar lobster roll is winner and still champion on the the Cape. The Hyannis location offered a beautiful view of the harbor. The staff were friendly and met our needs for refills. The service was speedy. You may search the galaxy for better, but don't expect to find a better lobster roll than the hot lobster roll served at the Raw Bar.
