We often go to Seafood Sam's when we desire a good, but reasonably priced seafood lunch. The menu is extensive but mainly fried seafood. The lunch specials are a great value, the food is freshly prepared and the seafood is good. I recently had the salmon bites which were delicious as a side order. I ordered the large at 8.95... More

Been going to the Cape for years and have often stopped at Seafood Sam's. This visit was not to disappoint. I order the fried clam strip platter and my wife had the broiled scallops. The fried clams were fried to a golden brown not greasy at all ,the batter did not overwhelm the clam and taste was delicious. My wife... More

My husband & I have eaten here many times because we live close by and we love fried seafood. Lately we have to say we've been somewhat disappointed in the portions compared to the price. We've been loyal supporters of Seafood Sams for years, but will probably rethink our choice about where to dine. It's unfortunate because the location is... More

We were on our way home after our Cape Cod vacation and my husband and I wanted one more seafood treat before the long drive home. We decided on Seafood Sam's and I'm still thinking about the meal we had! Typical fried seafood fare, I had fried haddock and fried scallops. Both fish were extremely fresh and crisp without being...

If you are planning to take a walk along the canal, and you don't want a table service type of meal, then I highly recommend Seafood Sam's. We've been eating here for years when I lived in Massachusetts, and we enjoyed it. Now that we live out of state, we stopped by for bite at our "old favorite" and found... More

My wife and I had lunch here a few days ago. My wife had a crab/lobster roll, and I had a "lunch-sized" fried whole clam plate. The crab/lobster roll was fairly small, but very tasty, containing about 3 ounces of crab and lobster mix. It came with a side order of cole slaw. The cole slaw was good...a bit crunchy... More

A Lower Cape institution, Sam's draws the crowds looking for a traditional seafood meal. Lobster, clams, oysters are paired with french fries and onion rings to fill out the "Fried" side of the menu. Cole slaw, potato salads and a variety of lettuce salads fill out the "Natural" side. (The french fries are good but the onion rings too breaded... More

Most of the menu was fried items, but what we ordered was good. You place your order at the register and then pick it up; there's no table service. I enjoyed the clam strips.

After visiting the Canal Visitor's Center, it was lunch time. We found Seafood Sam's to be a perfect place. Fried Lobster...yummy!!! Prices were not too bad and the place was very comfortable outside on the deck. Good place
