If you're interested in a quick meal with outside dining, I suggest someplace other than Denmos. Way overpriced and not that great. Unless you like heartburn after you eat.Then Denmos is for you. Almost $50. for very few fried whole belly clams (not so good)...More

The grilled cheese is a bargain. The chicken sandwich on a Portuguese roll -excellent. Soups, not so much. Try the chocolate shake. Good fries too.

Shrimp are the Best. Hot Dogs vary from good to poor. Help very slow. Must be relatives. I will try the Lobster Rolls.

A food stand that has a variety of food. This place is very popular in the summer. They have hamburgers, hot dogs, clam strips, lobster rolls, etc. Everything is cooked to order. The milk shakes are very good.

Whenever we drive past, which is daily as we live in town, it is always crowded. So we decided to give it a try, and we went for the most expensive hot Lobster Roll. It was excellent. It is open air seating, and we didn't...More

I LOVE Denmo's! I true local favorite. Local ice cream! You can always get great roadside foods here. Just don't get the sausage and pepper grinder unless you're in need of a high dose of sodium, then get it.
