About The Original Seafood Restaurant... In 1953, a drive-in restaurant was opened in Dennisport serving Cape Cod summer fare - hamburgers, fried seafood, and ice cream. Ever since, we have remained faithful to the doctrine that has been so successful over the years - freshness first. The secret to our success lies in our commitment to serving strictly fresh food and adhering to the original family recipes. The result is unparalleled seafood. Enjoy a one-pound lobster roll, grilled swordfish, oysters, scallops or crab cakes - and follow it up with an old fashioned malt or frappe! Voted #1 for Best Fried Clams on Cape Cod. Made the Cape Cod A-LIST for clam chowder in 2012 and 2013.

Best Saefood around

We have been a patron for years. Their combo platters are fantastic along with the onion rings. My family and I prefer this place over Kreme and Cone.

Excellent Establishment

We try to visit the Cape every summer, (we are from upstate N.Y.) When we do, it might only be for 3 or 4 nights, but we visit this restaurant 2 or 3 times per visit. The absolute best Lobster rolls!! Well worth the visit!! Enjoy

the best around!!!

I live in Yarmouth ma. And am a year round resident and quite a foody! I know husband worked late tonight and knew my son and I had already ate. He stopped and got a seafood platter on the way home...I was full but couldn't help but steal some fish, clams and shrimp because it was so unbelievabley delicious..seriously. they obviously change their oil regularly because there was no bitter after taste and the coating was perfect. Almost buttery. The tartar sauce and shrimp dipping sauce was delicious and plentiful. I can't say enough about how yummy it was!!!

Superior food and staff

This is an excellent spot for casual family dinner or lunch. Clean, good food and very friendly and helpful staff.

Excellent fried foods & lobster rolls.

Because of the competition between Original & Kreme & Kone both places remain great. Original is a little bit cheaper & closer to home so we go there more frequently. The food is always reliable & delicious.
