My husband and I had dinner. He had the chef salad and I had the shrimp Louie Louie. Both were really good. The prices were very reasonable and the service was great. I will definitely be returning!

Clam chowder was good. We had the bread bowl. More bread needed to be removed from the bowl. Too little chowder, too much bread.

Our clam chowder is a staple here, so I'm really pleased to hear that you enjoyed it, Kim! We love our bread here, so I apologize if it was a bit more than you were expecting. Next time please remind us that you'd prefer to have more bread removed, and we'll be more than happy to make sure you get... More

Great place for the family to eat. We have 6 kids. Good American style food at a reasonable price. They also have a selection of brews which were good as well.

Great cafe for lunch. They had gluten free bread and were very accommodating for those with food allergies. Creative cocktails, too. The staff is very friendly. The atmosphere relaxed.

Glad you think so, Cindy! We know it can be stressful to have food allergies when dining out, but we'd never want our guests to feel anything but well-cared for. I hope you'll come back to see us! Best, Karen, N, Owner More

Sam's Seaside Cafe offers a great value. My husband had the halibut fish and chips. He ranked the fish an 8.5. The waiter told us it is never frozen and hand breaded on site. The happy hour beer specials are excellent.

This pub / bar is a great find. Nothing fancy at all, just great food at a great price. The clam strips and fries were excellent and all I could eat. There is a neat little bar hid in the back that you wouldn't know was there if you didn't ask. Skip the overpriced tourist traps and check this place... More
