Always friendly staff and good food...Great combination

Always enjoy out time there. Friendly staff. If you're lucky enough to have a "school card"...you can buy one hamburger and get the second one free. A great deal...then all you need is a big appetite. Large portions. Soups are delicious and usually the specials of the day are very good. Just can't... read more

I can't say this is a real seafood cafe because their quality on seafood items was sub-par, both with chowder and clam dish (tip; make sure you clean your clams guys). But their burgers are decent, and the wait staff is very friendly for kids. I will say, you'll get a lot more attention if you are in the bar... More

Sam's had friendly service and great food. The fish and chips were delicious! The interior could use a renovation, but it still had a nice atmosphere and is a great place to stop for lunch!

Yummy Food, great friendly service, and great value for the money you spend. You can sit by a window and do some fun people watching.

This place has food more like that of a fast food restaurant. Not bad but not great. Prices were a lil steep for what u get. The crab melt was good but very basic and $$. Good atmosphere and super nice staff. Better to stop in for happy hour for a drink and some fries.

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

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 pork sandwich was off the hook. It... 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
