Since 1976, Cap’n Frosty’s in Dennis Village has been demonstrating just how diverse the humble clam can be. Whether you have a hankering for clam chowder, clam cakes, clam rolls, fried clams or a high-heaped clam combo plate, you will find them all at this modest spot.
Kream ‘N Kone
Don’t let the name fool you. Sure the Kream ’N Kone serves soft-serve ice cream, but the main course — in fact, the main draw — at this vintage West Dennis eatery is deep-fried seafood. The clam plate with fries and onion rings is a must-order.
Sam Vecchione started a chain reaction when he opened the original Seafood Sam’s in 1974. Now with locations in Harwich, Sandwich, Falmouth and Yarmouth, Sam’s comprehensive menu (which includes broiled seafood and salads) leaves diners clam-oring for more.
Arnold’s Lobster and Clam Bar
Arnold’s Lobster and Clam Bar in Eastham is always busy — and once you see the menu, you will understand why. The standard deep-fried fare here is supplemented with shucked-while-you-wait oysters, raw bar clams, steamed lobsters and “chowdah.”
