A wide variety of burgers and seafood to be had here. Seafood is fried or broiled. Fresh lobster rolls too. Portions are huge and boxes are available if you can't finish it all. 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.

The food here is excellent! If you are counting carbs you may not want to go. They do have some broiled dishes but we we went for the fried. The serving sizes are huge! You can't finish it. Lots of leftovers which we had for two more days. Seafood is fresh and batter is light.We will go back again before... More

This is our favorite restaurant in town for seafood. We order our sweet potato fries first, so we can enjoy them while they are hot, hot, hot. They are the best in town. Entrees are great. We get a bunch of broiled scallops, also to die for--and healthy. I'll share them or get a spicy shrimp wrapped for myself. Counter... More
