Good food in a clam shack setting

You go to Gene's for the food and not the ambiance. I eat there regularly and always eat well. The cooks are all proud of their work. It is the place to go for deep fried shellfish of any sort or fish & chips. All is absolutely fresh and pricing is fair.

I've gone to Gene's many times over the years and it is a simple place with no frills fried food dining. Their fried clams just may be the best in New England. ..and I've tried numerous places in Maine..on North Shore and on Cape Cod..I drive from Dennis on the Cape 40 minutes to get them. The fish n chips... More

Been going to Gene's for a number of years and have always enjoyed it. Considering it is out of season the clams were very good. For 2 of us we order the seafood platter and an extra order of fish. There are more than enough fries for 2 on the seafood platter. The one thing I will agree with is... More

The food is good but it seems that everything taste the same, no mater if it is fish or clams or shrimp. The food is fresh but pre cooked ahead of time(fried fish).

Driving home and decided we were in the mood for seafood. Had never been to Gene's before but drove by and it looked very nice and seemed to be very busy. To our surprise you had to wait on yourself and place your order. It was worth it. The food was delicious and the price was very inexpensive. Will go... More

Just as we remembered it! We all had the lobster roll and the lobster meat was sweet and tender. Just move the smoking area away from the front entrance- no other complaints!

Every time I come up to New England to visit family I go to Gene's! Nothing fancy but you will surely enjoy the fish platters. Super fresh, not greasy, and very tasty. Enjoy..

I ordered a seafood platter and it was massive. I had no idea that it was a platter for two. The platter was very good. I loved the scallops!! I will return.

I'm usually skeptical of restaurant "famousness," but this place appears to have earned its moniker, starting with the fact that it's family-owned and has been in business for many years. Many fried seafood places have a frenetic air, which of course can be exciting sometimes, but even with 6 people in line and six others waiting for their orders, the... More
