On a visit to Boston, drove down to Caper Cod for a day and we all craved Lobster. Seafood Sam's was recommended by the Tourist bureau and I concur. Plentiful choice of seafood, low cost plenty of it and well cooked and tasty. Both my wife and I had lobster in different styles and both were delicious. Thoroughly recommend.

Situated right on the Cape Cod Canal, this was the first place we stopped at for seafood on the Cape. The seafood was extremely fresh, the coating was tasty and the portions were generous. This generous portion was especially true for the delicious onion rings. With all the other food we ordered, our party of six could not finish the... More

We were there in July 2014. The food was fast and servings were nice-sized. A little greasy, but good. It was okay. Not outstanding, but I might go again. We did love the outside seating!

Great restaurant for really good seafood - very casual and a nice view of the Cape Cod canal from the Sandwich location. Clam strips are sweet and plentiful. I miss them already.

We only had the fisherman's platter, but we came back another day for more. Delectable, juicy, crispy fried seafood. Delish.

My impression is that there are two different Seafood Sam's operating under the same name. This Sandwich based on has prices that are way too high. The access road and location are ugly. The building is cookie-cutter. The view is terrible. Possibly the one of the two reasons it still exists at all is because it is close to the... More

Really good lobster rolls, chowder and more . A great place with friends - casual and not rushed with seating indoors and out. When we were there , there was no service at the tables , but that didn't matter.

Nice place to go near the canal with quick seafood dishes. Can be very busy but they are usually quick with orders and lots of seating. A bit pricey

We go to Sam's many times during the summer, the staff is great, the food is good and we like to watch the boats in the canal. Never disappointed.
