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.

Really like their Lobster Rolls in Summer, and their famous hot dogs any time of year. Shakes are also yummy!!

Besides hot dogs and hamburgers, you can also get sandwiches, seafood (the fried clams are pretty good), soups, and ice cream. There is almost always a line but it moves quickly. There is no indoor seating and most of the seating is at picnic benches although there area a few tables under an awning. Prices are reasonable, although the seafood... More

Good hot sandwiches. Soups are a little iffy. Service is at the window and what you'd expect. The best is on a nice day when you can sit outside. The test of a good place is whether there is a line. At Denmo's, there's always a line.

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 enjoy much as it was colder for the season. Next time, we will try some... 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.

When in doubt or if your looking for a quick lunch/dinner, you can always count on Denmos. I have grown up with their food. Have to say I haven't been in awhile and happened to stop with my kids for lunch today. Everybody ordered their favorites with no fussing. Excellent, fresh seafood, burgers, chicken sandwiches, soups, salads and French fries.... More

I work in the area, so I occasionally visit on Friday as a pre-weekend treat. I do gravitate towards the cod sandwich, and I find it to be generally good, but I do notice some inconsistencies one way or the other. On this visit the sandwich was good though I do find that the bun doesn't seem to stand up... More
