Very good fried seafood. We ordered take out, Got a medium shrimp basket, a medium clam strips basket and a large order of onion rings. Portions size was large for all items, more than two could eat at one sitting and the it was great. It's a place the locals go. They do a large carry out business, but there... More

Wow - that's all I can say. Extremely GOOD fried seafood! Went here with my big eating, Coast Guard cadet son, and wife on a Saturday night. What a great decision. The portions were huge. The fried oysters, scallops, and onions were out of this world. We loved it. Although crowded, with many obviously coming in for pick up orders,... More

Can eat in or take out. They do a huge take out business as the phone didn't stop ringing while we were here. Fries are fresh and... More

The Original is a Dennisport institution. This little corner place has been around for a long, long time. The quality of the food is very good, the prices are reasonable. This has been our "go to place" when it is too hot to cook or when we just need a "fix" of great onion rings and fried seafood.

Love their food and the onion rings are the best on Cape Cod! I've gone a lot of times and it's always delicious with prompt service and happy faces!

In the commercial center of Dennis Port, Original Seafood is a mainstay. Using the same recipe for decades, it specializes in good old-fashioned fried seafood. Clams, scallops, shrimp, haddock ... the only land animals served here appear in a hamburger and a hot dog. Fried seafood has countless fans, and many have their own favorite style. Some like a smooth,... More

You place your order at the counter (or drive through). The staff members were friendly, helpful and gave good recommendations.

Of onion rings and fries. We liked the broiled haddock. Cole slaw had too much dressing - a little less and it would have been just right.
