    I dunno what's open this time of year, but I just did a search on "Dennis Lobster" and came up with 407 entries on here

      Most fish markets are retailing 1.25 pounders at $5.99 per pound so cheap lobster is plentiful almost anywhere that's open. Swan River Restaurant and Fish Market in Dennisport comes to mind as a good, inexpensive, no-frills option.

        Swan River is open so late (the restaurant) in the season? Great, I want to try it based on your previous rec.

          They had an ad in this Sunday's paper, but that may have been just for the fish market side. May be best to call.

            Someone told me Swan River Restaurant closed a few months ago for the off season. I believe this is still a seasonal restaurant.

            Dwharff, let me know what you find out. Misaki had lobster hand rolls Sat. night on their menu. WOWSA

              I'm sure the fish market's open which means you can get fried clams, boiled lobsters and more to go. They also have a new spot in the Bell Tower Mall in Centerville. Haven't tried it though.
