We order here every year. The fried seafood is great - fresh, crisp, expertly fried, served with a combo of french fries and onion rings. As the portions are large, order carefully. We usually order a 2 seafood platter (e.g., oysters, scallops) and a side order of seafood (e.g., clam strips), and take plenty of leftovers home. Cole slaw tends... More

We live on the Cape year round and the original is my restaurant of choice for fish and chips and other fries seafood. Their fries scallops never disappoint. They are friendly and the food is consistently great every time. Their Cole slaw is awesome!

We ordered from Original Seafood after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. The food was not bad, but very unoriginal and very deep-fried all-around. Ordered two different kinds of fish for the adults - fish'n'chips and filet of sole - but it was impossible to tell them apart. Just lumps of deep-fried fish and plenty of fries. Maybe you have...

Dinners included Filet of Sole, Whole Belly Clams, Clam Strips, Chicken Teriyaki and Clam Chowder. Portions were generous and the quality was very good. Easy take out as we called and then drove to pick up. We will return.

Perhaps it is time for some new recipes... Fried scallops were heavily breaded and soggy...tasted frozen not fresh. French fries were definitely of the frozen variety. Not sure where people get their seafood that this place tastes so good, but being from New England, this place doesn't even register on my list. Prices were high compared to the amount of... More

This place has very good fried seafood. The food is not greasy and they give you plenty of it. 3 of us had the fried clam strip platter and one of us had the fried shrimp platter. They give you fries and onion rings with it. We did not tryvany of the other dinners, but highly recommend the clams and... More

Best fried haddock sandwich with thin onion rings on the Cape. Huge servings. We went 3 times on our week vacation. Can't wait to go again

My wife and I stopped here this past weekend and although the 4th of July crowds were making every restaurant stop a challenge, we got our food relatively quickly! We both had fish and chips with a healthy portion of fish, fries and the added bonus of onion rings! Fish was great, onion rings thin and not heavily battered like... More

Awesome fried seafood. We get it for takeout after work. Love the fried clams and scallops, and the fish and chips is my husbands favorite.
