Great clam chowder & fried clam strips. 5/8/15

We stopped in for dinner our first night in town. Delicious clam chowder. Great fried clam strips and lobster roll. Did not like the lobster bisque which was too thick and too rich for me personally. Casual no frills place. You order at the counter and they give you a lobster timer that lights up... read more

Great food, fast, delicious and fair price. Good place if you want to eat fast and continue your trip. Right next to the ferry parking.

This will seem small to a lot of people, but I will consider Seafood Sams again and again for one amazing reason. We went there yesterday at the start of our mini-retreat for April school break and my son dropped his wallet which had all of his birthday money in it from family and friends- $136! When we were leaving... More

I think you can eat there but most don't. The food is actually pretty good but for a take out place,it's quite pricey. Pretty good selection but mostly seafood.

It's not fancy, you serve yourself (order at window), and bus your own table. The food portions are generous. I always order clam strips. They have very good tartar sauce. It's a fun place for kids and easy on Mom and Dad's wallet.

Discovered it on the side of a bike trail while riding . Decided to go back later with the car to have dinner. Food was great. Good portions. You order at the counter and wait for your order. Self serve so I think it's great for kids. Food was not greasy. Will definitely go back.

I stopped on my way into town for lunch and it was just what I wanted. Roadside seafood with paper plates etc why anyone would expect fine dinning is beyond me but if you want pretty good fired clams with slaw you are at the right place. Check it out with the right expectations you will not be disappointed.

Intended to go to Crabapples but they were closed at 5:30pm. Instead went to Seafood Sam's. Alot of restaurants close after the tourist season Sam's is one of those that should. The food is very poor and expensive. As we were there (6:00pm) the workers started to close off more and more sections and started to clean up to close.... More

A tourist restaurant that appears to attract the non discerning multi-generation crowd. Pricey and impersonal. On the positive side, malt vinegar is provided for those who enjoy this condiment on fries.
