An eclectic restaurant with very good fried seafood options. You place your order, take your lobster, grab a table and await the lobster to flash and buzz. The food is always hot and well cooked. The restaurant is a family adventure. It is always clean, with a sea decor. Always the place to visit when in Sandwich.

When you have a craving for fried seafood, this is the place. Relaxed and casual atmosphere. Delicious fresh seafood. You can eat in or on the deck or yard and check out the canal traffic. Have a beer or glass of wine or a soft drink. I recommend it highly!

We went to Seafood Sam's for dinner and ate lobster, fish and fried calamares. Staff was friendly. Unfortunately, all dishes were rubbery and at best tasteless. We could not eat anything and won't be back.

Great family dining with many seafood options! Always crowded but lines move quickly. For a taste of the Cape, don't miss Seafood Sams!

Nice atmosphere inside or out- fried clams and oysters were fresh and lightly fried- Steamers were good- if you like fried or broiled fish I would recommend this place. Reasonably priced

I don't eat fish. They have plenty of choice if you don't like fish. I had the mozzarella sticks, french fries and onion rings. Everything was delicious. They have the best onion rings. So yummy! Some fried seafood restaurant don't change the fry oil often enough. Everything tastes like fish. That was not the case here. Others in my party... More

Seafood is the deal here and it is mid price range. You can order just about any type of seafood and there is counter service. Perfect for families to friends. This... More

So many seafood options here! It was tough to choose. I tried the fish tacos and was very pleased. You place your order up front and then pick it up in about 10 mins. Nice outdoor seating and good for kids.

This is my first experience with this chain. On the way to The Cape this was a stop for lunch. I got a little lost because I thought it was just off the bridge, it is not. A little driving is required. This is casual fast food. You order at the counter and pick up at the counter. You can... More
