The best place for fried seafood on the Cape. We stopped for lunch today for their 2 for $20 lobster roll. Splitting cole slaw and French fries make for a tasty lunch. A great place for the family.

Suggestions: the lobster rolls and clam strips are great but also fish and chips. Prices depend on the dish. Great Outlook over the Cape Cod Canal

I'm a local, I've been eating seafood since I was in the womb. Sam's is a decent place to grab some fried seafood. My wife and I grab a seafood platter for 2 (26.95) and head over to the canal to eat and watch the boats. The food is always fresh tasting and good, if it weren't I'd never go... More

Excellent seafood Restaurant with all kinds of seafood and the best Onion Rings anywhere. It is self-service in that when you are notified that your order is ready you pick it up at the counter. There is no wait staff. A little pricy for self-service, but the food is excellent. This is a seasonal Restaurant and is not open in... More

Back for a re-visit and the scallop roll was equally as delicious as last year. Delicately fried to perfection, sweet sea scallops nestled in a gently toasted bun. I counted at least a dozen. The fries were flavorful and fantastic - and I am not a big fan of fries. I marveled at how there was not one speck of... More

I had not been to this Sam's but over the years have hit the other location. This location is great, right near the entrance to the canal. Folks were friendly, food was solid, not too greasy and lots of choices for kids too. I think this will be on our circuit next summer...

We go here every year as another of our annual summar vacation rights of passage. Tons of delicious fried seafood options. Probably should not go more than 3 times in one week to avert detioration of arteries, but for one week a year its probably okay. Lots of good choices for kids too. Thumbs up.

Casual, quick delicious "fast" food - very good for families as noise is no problem. The food is a little pricey for what you get but b/c it is situated right on the Cape Cod Canal, it is worth it. It can get very busy with tour buses but the food is moved along quickly. It is an "order your... More

The steady stream of customers is proof that this SAMs is a favorite. The long lines move quickly and you may need the time to make a choice from the varied menu! Dining areas are clean and roomy but can be noisy and chaotic with the crowd. For varied atmosphere, try to get a seat on the deck, at the... More

I was born and raised on Cape Cod so I guess you could say that I know my seafood. Although I am not a huge seafood fan myself there are certain items I have to have when I return home each summer. One of the items is a lunch on the deck at the Seafood Sams in Sandwich. Although there... More
