“Hold the Clam Cakes”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We dropped by the Captain's because we had heard about the clam cakes. Yep, that's right; clam (not crab) cakes. Many of the platters include them, so we were able to order our preferred entree and try the cakes, too. Nice. So my lobster roll was yummy, with just enough mayo and one piece of lettuce (which is the way I like it). It would be calling it great if the roll had been grilled w/butter. As it was, just barely toasted is the best I can say for it. The fried fish was fabulous (I tasted it) and the fried clams were fine. The cole slaw was homemade (I believe) and above average. The fries were hot. And fast! We could not believe how quickly our order made it to the table. Kudos to the cooks and waitstaff for that. My husband also had a very chocolate-y frappe but was disappointed that they were out of malt. It happens.
And the clam cakes? Well, they turned out to be more like fritters and rather doughy....not much flavor at all. They were OK, but 1 was enough for most of us.

“Overall not worth it”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

I had heard great things from family and friends but I found their prices to be outrageous compared to their portions. I will look for seafood elsewhere.

“great clams and fish and chips!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

4th trip to Captain Frosty's ...we always come before the dinner rush or after the lunch rush. It was a nice day and we loved the outdoor seating. Enjoyed a great meal of fried clams and fish and chips w nice tarter sauce but it wasn't enough and we had to get more . The staff was very helpful. I've had the lobster rolls in the past and they are also very good. The kids enjoyed the chicken tenders and fries. We actually liked the fritters or "hush puppies" they were tender and tasty. It didn't feel like a heavy fried food dinner which is nice. Parking can be tough and it does get busy . The only have soft serve icecream and it was very good.

“Best clam cakes around!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Found this place after searching all afternoon for a pizza joint. Happy Accident!! The food was delicious!! They have the art of the "seafood shack" down to a science!! Place your order, they give you a number, you find a seat and your food is delivered right to the table!! The fish and chips platter is one of the best around, but my goodness....the clam cakes!! To die for!! Little pillows of clammy deliciousness. Think hush puppy but with chopped clams added. Go on a Tuesday night - it's all you can eat clam chowder and clam cakes. We've tried lots of other menu items, but i keep going back for the clam cakes! You will not be disappointed.

“Captain frotastic!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

We went to captn' frosty's and had a great experience! We got a lobster roll, hotdog and fish and chips. The lobster roll was the perfect size and was delicious. The hot dog was amazing and also the perfect size. The fish and chips had great tarter and the fish was obviously fresh. The union rings were addicting! They were perfect and a must have. If you're on the cape in Dennis go to this place.

Thank CapeDL
