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.

My husband and I are here during a recent trip to the Cape after asking for a recommendation from the staff where we stayed. Upon arrival it looked nice enough for a lovely dinner to celebrate my birthday but after walking inside, it was nothing we had expected. This isn't a restaurant, this is take out with a self service... More

During a recent trip to Falmouth, I was not able to secure parking on Main Street, so ventured out to a restaurant with parking - finding myself at Seafood Sam's. The staff was very pleasant and I ordered a luncheon fried scallop plate, which came with fries and cole slaw. The owner was overseeing the kitchen, and he has a... More

Self Service --Walk in, order, and wait. Not fast food, but all items in our party of 6 came out correctly. Food was hot, well prepared and tasty. Staff was friendly and helpful. Restaurant was clean, but seating seemed very crowded.

Wanted clam strips and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant staff are great and it's a nice relaxing atmosphere. They over charged us (we didn't catch) and there was the $s on our tray when we picked up our order. Now a days that kind of honesty is nonexistent. Great Place!!!
