I'm visiting my cousins in New Bedford this summer and we want to take a day trip to Hyannis while we're at it. We’d love some suggestions of some moderately-priced places with great seafood either in Hyannis or on the way there from New Bedford. Nothing too elegant. We're just looking for some casual good seafood.
I'm from New Bedford, so I've spent quite some time in Hyannis! I actually have five favorite restaurants in that city.
The two not-so-fancy ones are Seaside Pub On Main and Raw Bar On Ocean Street. Seaside has pub food of course, but they also have very good seafood. I suggest their fish and chips and fish tacos, and their phu phu platter is great for sharing. I don't think it has seafood on it, but it's got things like chicken wings, fries, etc. At Raw Bar, just order the lobster roll!
My other three favorites are on the slightly fancier end but if you're curious about them, they're close by. Roadhouse Cafe's blackened swordfish is amazing. The Paddock has the best baked stuff lobster I've ever had. Naked Oyster has an incredible raw bar.
Have fun on your trip!!!
