I have gone to this seafood sams location for as long as i can remember. The food is always excellent and consistent and the seafood always fresh. Great for lunch or dinner. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is very little turnover and the same people have been there for years. Plenty of options for seating both inside... More

In Falmouth one can find many seafood restaurants , Sam's , serve a good selection of seafood in a self service buffet with a simple dining room. One orders, gets a "crab buzzer", waits a little, getting his food, add pickles and spreads, sitting and enjoying the Seafood of Sam's restaurant. Sam's Baked Seafood Mac 'n Cheese Platter Lots of...

Accessible from the Shining Seas bike path, we find this a great place for a nice lunch. The best overall dining deal in the area, you can find fresh seafood platters, including a variety of baked options. Nice side dishes, comfortable indoor seating, plus an attached solarium area just in case you missed the 1970's.

My husband and I took six of our children to Seafood Sam's so they can experience real New England fish and chips. We shared the Family Fish Feed plus a kid's meal and we were all well filled. Oh, we did also share a medium order of onion rings. Fall is an awesome season to tour the Cape. We didn't... More

My husband and I had the Seafood platter for two. All fried, but really good. The breading was light and not greasy or soggy. The scallops were our favorite. Would go back if ever in the area.

We both ordered the fish & chips. Oddly colored orange coating on the fish. No taste and the overall look of the fish was not appetizing! I did eat the coleslaw and my husband didn't, so Im guessing thats where the problem was? Within 1/2hr got very ill spent the next 5 hours between the bed and bathroom! There was... More

Still cannot believe how delicious the loster roll was from this take out chain. Clean, friendly staff. The jumbo loster roll was huge and so tasty. Did not disappoint as compared to other rolls we had on the cape.

One of the reasons we like to come to Mass is for the seafood. This place did NOT disappoint. You order at the front and then wait for your "lobster" light to go off. Prices are moderate but the size of servings are more than ample. ($23.95 for the platter) The best and most important is the seafood. It is... More
