Three of us visited for a standard fish and chips. This was in December and close to 7 PM (they close at 7:30). The greeting was friendly when we ordered at the counter. We got what we expected - good fish and chips. Now, if you order fish and chips you get pieces of fish. If you order instead the... More

The fried seafood was fresh, tasty and plentiful. The onion rings tasted great so definitely order them. All the fried food was, not surprisingly, a bit on the greasy side. The chocolate shake was perfect.

Good for take out. Lobster Roll was very good, and also did fish and chips-only with onion rings instead of french fries. Onion rings were very good, but fish was over battered for my taste.

The Original is one of my favorite fried seafood places on the Cape. The fish is always fresh, the batter is light and not too greasy. I love their haddock sandwiches and their onion rings. Definitely worth a trip if you're in the mood for fried seafood.

It's basically a no-frills fast seafood place but prices for the Cape are reasonable & food is good.

Disappointed. Food was too greasy and didn't taste fresh. Granted, we stopped by around 8pm and they were trying to close up even though TA indicated closing time was 9pm.

When in the neighborhood, check out Original Seafood - family owned & operated and totally delicious!! Cafeteria style, eat in or take out and in a week we had 3 meals in & one to go. Not a touristy spot, definitely the local clientele & they nailed the deep fried scallops & clams. Our favorite - clam chowder!! We tried... More

This restaurant has very good fried seafood. You place your order, they give you a number and you wait for the number to be called. Go up and pick up your food. The wait is not long and you have a generous helping of delicious seafood. I believe there are other choices, but we always go for the seafood.
