When our children were younger we spent summers on Cape Cod. One of their favorite restaurant’s was Seafood Sams. It didn’t matter which one, Falmouth or Sandwich, they were happy with either. I feel this is a very family friendly restaurant. Outdoor picnic tables and...More

Friendly cafeteria-style restaurant with a good bar of local beers and nice wine. Almost everything is fried (unfortunately) but I really really enjoy the clam chowder and the lobster bisque that you can buy in cup or bowl (to eat or to go). Good stop...More

This has always been my favorite must stop on the cape. Great seafood quick. Today we had the baked seafood platter for two. Included lobster, haddock, scallops and shrimp. It was delicious. Located right off the canal, which provides atmosphere. Families welcome, and on site...More

We enjoyed a great walk on the canal and headed to Seafood Sam's for dinner. Perfect weather, plenty of seating and great views. Our dinner was fantastic, the onion rings....the best! Perfect meal and setting. I will be back.

Stopped for lunch and had some nice fish and crab. You order at the hatch and collect when ready. The sound of the buzzer to tell you your food is ready is loud so you won't miss it!

We have visited Seafood Sam's quite a few times. We tried to go there when it first opened for the season, but the weekend we were on the Cape was during one of the March 2018 snowstorms that knocked out power to virtually the whole...More

Seafood Sam’s is the best in casual eating, lunch, dinner, and takeout. Eat inside or on the deck that has views of the canal boats. There is also a small bar. Fried, broiled, or grilled the food is always fresh. Fish is the specialty but...More
