A Lower Cape institution, Sam's draws the crowds looking for a traditional seafood meal. Lobster, clams, oysters are paired with french fries and onion rings to fill out the "Fried" side of the menu. Cole slaw, potato salads and a variety of lettuce salads fill out the "Natural" side. (The french fries are good but the onion rings too breaded for a soggy texture.) A good view of the Cape Cod Canal in a large array of tables, some on the porch. (Don't expect either warmth or professionalism from the counter crew, whose lack of interest in the guests is overwhemed by a much better developed interest in themselves and each other -- clearly a lack of training by management.) A small bar near the kitchen.

Most of the menu was fried items, but what we ordered was good. You place your order at the register and then pick it up; there's no table service. I enjoyed the clam strips.

After visiting the Canal Visitor's Center, it was lunch time. We found Seafood Sam's to be a perfect place. Fried Lobster...yummy!!! Prices were not too bad and the place was very comfortable outside on the deck. Good place

Dad did not want a fancy dinner and opt to go to his choice at seafood SAMs. Parking lot was packed but service behind counter kept line moving. Less than 5 mins we were seated and waited for our food. Within 10 mins food was ready. Staff great with smiles despite being very busy. Thanks for the slice of cake to celebrate Father's Day.
Great food...
