Located in the sandwich marina. This spot was great after our walk and playing on the nearby playground. It offers daily specials. We got the Wednesday -Fried or Baked Haddock Platter which was very reasonably priced. It was cooked just right, not at all greasy and the batter wasn't heavy. Plenty of indoor seating, young enthusiastic staff members made for... More

It always a pleasure to return to Seafood Sam's a the beginning of the season to see how they have redecorated. The food is definitely fresh and prepared perfectly but the ambiance is perfect as well. There are new tables and booths, red, white and blue rooms, new lamps, wall paper, et all. The most significant change is plates and... More

Good seafood, GREAT lobster rolls. The onion rings are done perfectly. It's a simple restaurant: one orders at the counter, and then retrieves the tray of food to take to your table. But, the food is to die for. A wide-ranging menu, but if you're there only once, get the lobster roll. Or the Crabster Roll (half lobster meat and... More

We ate lunch here and were not impressed. The food was ok, the atmosphere just average. Nothing about the place was amazing or warranted another trip. We will look elsewhere next time we are in the area.

There is no fresher seafood reasonably priced and served New England style that Seafood Sam's. Ever wonder why its always so busy? Beer or wine if you want it, and an excellent dinner for the price. Down to earth with a great view and outside dining along the canal if you wish. Comfortable- not ostentatious. If you like seafood broiled... More
