Original Seafood has wonderful "Cape" seafood and it's one of the few "seafood shacks" that are open in the winter. They are open Friday - Sunday so I can get my seafood fix. Always a great meal, it has the best onion rings and fried seafood around!

The Original Seafood Restaurant may indeed be original. At least it looks the part. The ambiance here is a bit like a seafood McDonalds. You order at the counter and they call your number when it's ready. The menu is almost all seafood in many varieties, with burger, chicken tenders and hotdogs as the only other options. Go for the...

Nothing fancy about this place but it did have the best food and that's what counts! We got the broiled shrimp and broiled haddock with a cup of clamp chowder. It was delicious! I highly recommend it.

I am not a seafood lover and neither is my husband. We were in Boston and knew we had to eat some sort of seafood. At first we walked into Kups and Kones but it smelled SO BAD that we walked out! Further down the road was the Original Seafood restaurant. We walked in, took a whiff and there wasn't... More

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

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.

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
