The popular Orleans seafood restaurant will close down for good on September 13 after more than 50 years.

It’s the end of an era, folks! Family-run The Lobster Claw is closing down for good after more than 50 years of delightful clambakes and mouthwatering lobster rolls. While the pandemic didn’t take its toll on the famous seafood spot which is still going strong, it is owners Don and Marylou Berig who have decided to retire.

“After fifty-one great years, it’s time for the Berig family to say so long and retire!  So many great friends have been made and the Berig’s will miss you all so much, but all good things must come to an end! The Lobster Claw’s last day will be on Sunday, September 13th.  The Berigs hope you come in and say goodbye before we close,” wrote the owners in a heartfelt Instagram post.

The Lobster Claw first opened in 1962 and was acquired by the Berigs in 1970 and has been a staple for both visitors and Orleans locals ever since. The restaurant has become known for its fresh and flavorful food. “Our lobster rolls have been named the best lobster rolls on the Cape for several years. Another favorite is the fisherman’s platter. It’s almost impossible to finish,” said Don Berig to Capecod.com.

But all good things must come to an end and so The Lobster Claw will serve its last lobster roll on Sunday, September 13. Those who want to enjoy their legendary food before The Lobster Claw closes can stop by at 42 Cranberry Hwy, Rte. 6A.
