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, light batter; others want some crunch. Some prefer their clams and scallops fried just until they are barely cooked ... a minute is about right; others want a more thoroughly cooked product.
The recipe here is a crunchy coating and the cooking time is somewhere in the middle. I find it too crunchy for my liking, and more greasy than it ought to be. My preference is for the North Shore's Clam Box in Ipswich or Woodman's in Essex. They just have that formula that combines a lighter flour coating with quick fry-time. M-m-m-m.
But for the Cape, Original Seafood is a fine place to stop.
