Food was ok, atmosphere was nice but there are lacking issues. We ordered steamers and it came out cold. As for the fried dishes, there is lacking in the seasoning. Had better elsewhere on the Cape.

I like Seafood Sams. I like their food, but usually fine the fried dishes are a little overcooked. The prices are good. Family oriented, so it can get very noisy at times

We've been visiting Seafood Sam's on every trip to the cape for the past 25 years. The breading on the fried shrimp or clams is just right--not too heavy. If you like fried seafood, this is it.
