After taking our anniversary photos on the Sandwich Boardwalk, my boyfriend & I agreed to stop by the first restaurant we stumbled upon, which happened to be Seafood Sam's. I had an idea of what to expect because I'd heard of the overall atmosphere & quality of the food, so it didn't come as a surprise to me when we... More

Seafood Sam's is not a fancy place. It is true that it is kind of "fast food' In appearance, but if you sit at the bar, you can be served by the nicest, most pleasant of bartenders - and order the baked seafood casserole with extra crumbs. It is outrageously good and chock full of fresh seafood. We went as... More

We have stopped here a few times ghis summer, most recently in late August. I was surprised each time with how long it took to receive our food. Everything seems overpriced for the quantity you receive. The fried clams are ok. The lobster and lobster clam rolls are also ok. Same goes for the lazy man's lobster. Portions are small... More

A pleasant lunch place which takes your order before you sit down. Nice to sit on the outside deck overlooking Cape Cod Canal. Lobster roll was good and so was the crab roll special with some lobster mixed in. Lots of fries with each plate.

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.

The clam chowdah is so fresh, with potatoes, clams, lots of peppah, and sauce! Cheese cake with caramel and walnut topping, chocolate, and graham cracker shell!' Crab roll is soo good with the natural taste of the sea, tomatoes, lettuce, and slaw on the side, with a pickle..... Had to have it here,

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.
