Still delicious.

My first recollection of eating at Captain Frosty's was about 30 years ago. My husband and I stopped in for lunch a few weeks ago. He had a clam roll plate and I had a hamburger. Quick service and we both enjoyed our meal. Though situated right on 6A there are tables outback in a shaded area. It... read more

INCONSISTENT is what I thin of this place, after MANY many years of eating here during summer vacations on the Cape. Centrally located between Yarmouth and Dennis on Route 6A, we have had very good and very bad meals / experience here over the years...

I'm not a fan of fried food, but I found healthy option .... house salad topped with lobster. Others in my party got the fried food an were quite happy. My salad with lobster was quite good. They also had a long line of little leaguers waiting for ice cream. They had a few other healthy options such as salmon... More

Take out, eat-in, or lunch on the patio. Good range...but pretty much everything is fried. Even the fried salmon. Reasonable prices. Right on 6A, across from the big Cape Cod antiques center. Ok. Good for a quick stop.

The fish and chips are always delicious as are the clam strips. You can always finish off your meal with an ice cream cone or a generous hot fudge sundae. There is indoor and outside seating. We always prefer eating outdoors when the weather permits.

Just the best! Lobster rolls, bellied fried clams, onion rings are better than Sesuit Harbor Cafe (which is pretty good, and has a better view). The salmon sandwich was thick and great. A superb place.

Captain Frosty's was my last Cape Cod meal. I had a fish sandwich and it was de-licious! The place was hopping so I ordered at the counter and grabbed a spot in the back. It's not fancy and that's part of the charm. I think you go to Cape Cod for the charm. The service was good and I didn't... More

This is a Cape Cod tradition on 6A in Dennis....Great clam shack with wonderful fresh seafood. In door and out door seating, friendly staff. Daily specials and ice cream take out for dessert...
