Great for takeout and dinner alongside the Canal

The fried food is consistently good. Fun to dine in or take-out. Excellent fried clams and onion rings!

The food was awesome and the service was great! I would highly recommend this place especially if you are a lover of seafood! They also have a great menu for those who do not care to feast on seafood!

My husband and I ordered the 2 dinners for $28, that had a wonderful mix of seafood! It was our first time having scallops...it was an awesome first time! Seasoning was spot on...melt in your mouth fish, and delicious shrimp and lobster meat! Perfect portion size! Can't wait to visit again!

We'd already eaten at the Seafood Sam's in Falmouth so we were prepared for this to be equally as delicious. It was. Fresh seafood done right and quick. Even though the bus tours frequent here and I suspect the on season crowds get huge, these folks have a system that lets the lines move quickly so you can have a... More

Good fried seafood, we had lobster rolls, fish n chips,scallops,chowder, clams. Only then clam fritters had poor reviews. A very casual place, nice location, near canal. Picnic tables outside. Much better than we expected.

As others reviews state, this is a no-frills New England restaurant. Fresh, copious amounts of food leaving you not wanting for more.

Checking out Sandwich on our way to DennisPort for the week and decided to stop. We ordered lobster roll, fried shrimp roll, and onion rings. The lobster roll was great. Pretty much what I expected having seen them on TV. Delicious! Wife's shrimp roll was also good. Onion rings were sliced thin and lights coated. Cooked perfectly. Overall, we are... More

Seafood Sam's has lunch specials which is good since their dinner plates are higher then usual places especially the ones with wait staff since you have to stand in line..place your order and then go and pick it up. They use paper plates and plastic utensils. When I go I usually go first thing in the spring and the last... More

We were the only ones in line for dinner and had lots of questions about the menu, which is pretty extensive. The girl behind the register couldn't answer anything, and kept running in back to get answers. Thought this was weird. We ordered a hot lobster roll which came barely luke warm. It was OK lobster, a little chewy, but... More

Come here very often because they have great fried seafood! Their seafood platter for two is the perfect amount of food and so tasty! The lobster and shrimp combo is to die for too! Drinks are very cheap and great also! Give them a try for sure!
