Solid food and service.

Are here with my husband and two kids (9, 11). My clam chowder was creamy with the right balance of all of the ingredients. Son's shrimp were fried and nothing special. The fries were way too greasy. Husband ordered a turkey sandwich (at the beach?!) which was also ok. But, my daughter's pulled... read more

Good place for a quick little bite. Shrimp was fresh. Husband had the crab melt. Prices are OK compared to some of the larger "fancy" places. Staff was super friendly and nice to our kids.

Service was great even late at night, so this was the only place we ate. Staff was friendly and the restaurant was clean.

We just happened to stop by this place. While checking out the menu outside they invited us in for lunch even though they weren't open for another 15 minutes which I thought was fantastic customer service. Great family option for food in Seaside. We have a 7 & 8 year old and both really enjoyed their food and putting together... More

I always have to have a crab Louie when I go to any beach town, but Sam's was truly fabulous. As I was sharing my salad with the granddaughter I asked for just a side of crab and was brought all claw meat. It was soooooo good. My other granddaughter had the Ahi tuna sandwich. She raved about it and... More

Stopped in for snacks and drinks. My family loved the oyster shots! Wasn't fancy but yummy food and great prices. Perfect little place for the beach. Great service too.

We came in to grab a quick bite here on Sunday. It was nice and fast friendly service. I had a turkey sandwich and my daughter had crab cakes . They were both above average but a little pricey for what we got.

This place may not look like much on the outside but it sure made up for it with thr friendly and funny staff and delicious food. We made it just in time for happy hour and enjoyed some draft PBR. Had coconut prawns with a delicious raspberry sauce. Overall a small place but great food and good for kids as... More

We were told that Sam's was one of the best seafood places in Seaside and were not disappointed. The service was quick, and the food was good and plentiful. It was a bit greasy so not something you do every day! The prices were a bit higher than I expected, but overall it was a good experience. We'd go back.

Didn't eat at the cafe but went to the bar in the back (lizard lounge) for a beer. It was happy hour and all the locals piled in - but you can't really beat dollar beers, even though its only Busch or rolling rock for a buck. The locals take off after happy hour is over. The decor is a... More
