A must stop after viewing the Cape Cod Canal. This is an order and pick up, seat yourself kind of place. No frills but the food is good. They have large indoor seating and a smaller patio. You can see the Canal from the patio seating. They also have picnic tables outside in the grass so you can... read more

All in all it's very clean but the cafeteria style ordering and trays to an open room of This EndUp furniture is a turn off. Tourists seem to like the regimented pandemonium but I do not. Food is above average but not enough for me to go back.

The food is good all around, fried, baked and stuffed! The bulk is seafood but they do have a few items for our non-seafood eaters. It's very casual atmospheres - but not a run down shack. It has painted walls, molding and nautical art decor. inside seating and outdoor seating during the summer months. There is a mini-bar to get... More

I've been here probably a dozen or so times. Their food is average fried seafood and broiled seafood fair. If you are looking for fried clams they are decent, but nothing to write home about. I've had an array of things on their menu and it's always just okay. For example, their stuffed clams don't satisfy my craving for stuffed... More

Expensive! Paid $28 for a clam plate but worth every penny. Lobster bisque, fried oysters and the best onion rings anywhere. A place where a Cape Codder will even battle throngs of tourists and tour buses? Now that's a great place. We try to go early or late or off season but we always have to go. Fresh, delicious seafood... More

Great atmosphere, quick service and friendly staff! One of the best seafood restaurants on Cape! Great for a bite after a day at the beach. Casual!

This unique family restaurant has a laid back atmosphere with marvelous views and great seafood. You come in and order your food on a menu card, present when it's your turn, pay and wait for your food. A giant plastic lobster is your "buzzer". Probably ordered too much in order to try everything.

My wife and I often go to the Cape Cod Canal to fish for stripers. When we get there we will stop at Seafood Sam's and have some clam chowder. It is a generous serving and is some of the very best you will find on the Cape. You can call ahead and pre-order your meal. If you don't then... More

On a Sunday night we drove to one of the few local restaurants that was open later in the evening. Unfortunately, we found it closed so we went to the next closest on TripAdvisor - Seafood Sam's. I ordered the baked seafood mac 'n cheese, which was wonderful. Saved the day and had great food to boot!

I have been going to Seafood Sam's for almost 15 years and the food is always great. The service is fine, the prices are decent Nd the portions are good. I can recommend anything fried or broiled. Their onion rings are excellent as is the Lobster Bisque (one of the best I've ever had). It's too bad they shut down... More
