“Great local place for fresh seafood!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We've been going to Captain Frosty's for years. It's a seasonal local seafood restaurant that is super casual. It is the only place we found on the Cape that serves clam cakes. Fried and broiled food is fresh. Portions are generous. If you're looking for fine dining, this isn't your pladce. But if you want a real taste of a Cape Cod clam shack, you won't find better anywhere else in the mid-Cape area.

“Classic Fried Seafood”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you're looking for fried seafood (scallops, shrimp, clams, etc.) this is the place. It's a typical little cafe-type restaurant where you place your order, sit and then wait for your number to be called. Food is excellent, portion sizes could be better. Finish off with an ice cream (sizes here were great).

“They "catered" our wedding!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

I think Captain Frosty's the best fish shack, at least in the mid-Cape. The key: they frequently change the oil in which they fry their fish. They also have a salmon sandwich, if you don't like fried food, onion rings that are crisp, and a soft serve selection for dessert.

“one of my fave places to have lunch on the cape!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Found this place by accident. We just happened to be driving by and popped in cause we were hungry (back in 2010)...we've gone every year since!....excellent fried clam strips and excellent lobster rolls (however if you enjoy the hot lobster rolls, they do not sell them here). Staff is always friendly and service is always fast. They also have great ice cream treats as well.

“Accidental treat”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

After enduring a long car ride and not wanting to stop to eat before crossing the bridge, we stopped at this place for a late lunch on our way up to Wellfleet. The place was busy, but ordering was efficient. I was expecting so little, but the food was surprisingly great! Our burgers were cooked perfectly and flavorful. The fish was fresh and light. The french fries, though not fresh cut, were also light and not overcooked. Yum. And to top it all off, the bathrooms were some of the cleanest of our entire trip. The ice cream was disappointing. Go for a meal, not dessert.
