Great stop for lunch off the shining sea bike path

We went on the shining star bike trail and passed this place during our ride and decided to stop for a late lunch after our ride. The lobster salad was a good sized portion with fresh juicy lobster meat . The salad wasn't dripping in mayo. My son and husband loved their fried clam plate with... read more

Lol, I would take a photo but I devoured my clam strips ASAP, and now is digesting/typing time! Seafood Sam's is my favorite place to eat in Falmouth. The staff workers are helpful to me every time this New Yorker comes in (twice or so, per year) Because I am a slow eater, I almost always order a plate of... More

Called ahead to order take out. On arrival girl at counter tried to send me home with just a salad and a chowder, until another server laughing at her said, "they need the seafood bake as well". A lucky interruption! Staff really didn't care about their customers. Another couple left before sitting down, commenting that the staff clearly didn't care... More

We ate at this restaurant numerous times while in Falmouth, MA. Very good tasting seafood. Restaurant was very clean, staff were very friendly, and portions were appropriate.

Have never been disappointed! Despite the hectic pace of service, the food is always prepared quickly and the staff friendly. While I truly appreciate the value of the Seafood Platter for Two, my wife has to end each summer with the Fried Lobster. This is our favorite restaurant on the Cape!

We stopped here for lunch on a weekday - not crowded, and the food came very quickly. We had chowdah and shared a 2-item combo fried seafood platter - plenty of food for us. The fried food was HOT, the breading was perfect - crispy but didn't overwhelm the seafood inside, and it was cooked in very fresh oil. Even... More

This was a late lunch before heading home. I ordered the fish & chips, my husband the chowder & onion rings, he said they where very crispy, made in house. They has unsweetened tea & pink lemonade ,self serve. The deserts where great, carrot cake, strawberry cheesecake , very clean, looks like they just repainted . Highly recommend.

I had my heart set on a good old fashion fried seafood dinner, and had heard this was the place to go. I was so disappointed. The servings were skimpy, there weren't many people there yet somehow our meals were not hot...on and on. I hate to say this but not worth it.

This was a solid thumbs up. I had the baked seafood platter (lobster, shrimp, scallops and haddock) and some clam chowdah with a beer. Everything was cooked well and tasted great. The food came quickly after a bit of time ordering.
