This is a seafood shack. It doesn't aspire to fine dining - no candles, no starched napery. It's a good, honest, seafood-and-no-frills joint, where you place your order at the counter and go back to collect it when it's ready, and on the evening we were there it did everything right. The fried scallops I ordered were the juiciest and... More

Been 3 times on bus tour stops, never have liked their food. I ordered a veggie burger - it was served on toast instead of a bun, was of poor quality, and was dried out. The french fries were OK. Their alternatives for people that can't or don't eat seafood are pitiful - think twice if you're with someone that... More

Casual stop with good selection for seafood. Walk up counter. Reasonable prices, interesting Cape Cod Canal and Visitor Center across the road

My daughter and I tried Seafood Sam's again last night. We both ordered the " Monday Special" Clam strip plate. Mine with baked hers w/fries. Our side dishes were piping hot but the strips were cold and rubbery. Not sure if it was a bad night or not. Wish it was as good as our first visit.

Had lunch with a group. Stand in line to order, pick up food when complete. Busy day, but service was good. My wife and I had the fried oysters and fish and chips, both of which were great. Probably some of the best fried oysters I have eaten. Sides were just OK. Prices reasonable.

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.
