Really enjoyed our lunch here. I had salmon and coleslaw and fries. It was delicious. The lobster roll was also delicious.

Stopped by with some friends while visiting the Cape. I had the combo plate with oysters, scallops, slaw and fried, while my wife had a combo plate with scallops, clam strips, slaw and fries. Both dinners were cooked just right and were hot. This is a order and pickup type place so there isn't any wait staff. The restaurant was... More

A fun little restaurant for visitors who want seafood but are also in a hurry to be on there sightseeing way.You give the order at the counter. Receive a buzzer and then pick up your meal. Paper plates and napkins complete the casual atmosphere. Food was very good and the price was reasonable. It is set up to serve a... More

There was a good choice of seafood, but sadly it was all cooked in batter. The lobster bisque was tasty but wasn't served hot enough. We opted for some steamed vegetables which were ok but didn't really match the seafood, perhaps a salad would have been better.

I could not pass up the fried clams! Spectacular flavor.. no grease! Great location on the canal! Close to the visitors center and sandwich marina! The food and the view... plus walking off your meal right on the canal! Awesome!

Recommended by locals, but disappointed when food was served on paper plates with plastic fork and knife. Food was more like fast food vs a sit down restaurant atmosphere. One staffer was rude because we didn't hear her call out our number, because the buzzers they were handing out were not working. We expected a much nicer place and atmosphere... More

We had high expectations of this place from locals. We chose the signature broiled seafood platter for two. Were disappointed with small portion size which arrived luke warm.

Our first stop on our 'follow the leaves changing color' tour of New England was Seafood Sams in Sandwich, MA. Wife & I split Clam Chowder, Popcorn Shrimp & Onion Rings. Delicious food, good service, and a good price. We'll be back!

We ate here twice during our stay on Cape Cod. I ordered "gluten free" both times. There is an upcharge to do so. The first time I was fine. The second time was much busier. I spent the next day very sick. They should not advertise being gluten free unless they are.

We stopped here on a bus trip for lunch. They are fast and everything was very good. I had the fish sandwich and chips and my friend had clams and both were great. You order at one counter and pick up at another. You get your own drinks and what ever else you need. If you want a good quick... More
