We love Seafood Sam's. You can get delicious fried foods but also healthier prepared seafood and salads. It is very relaxed and has great views of the Cape Cod Canal where huge boats pass by.

Lunch or dinner, the seafood is always consistent. The line to order moves quickly and there is not a long wait to pick up your food.

We had our best seafood meal at Seafood Sam's. The best fried clams I have ever had. We highly recommend this place. You have to walk up to order and the environment is casual.

Stopped here with a group for lunch while visiting the Cape Cod Area. We were quickly helped through the line and the food came up rather fast. I enjoyed the baked Salmon. Plenty of seating for larger groups with plenty of easy parking for cars...More
