We went with a large group on a busy Saturday and honestly I was impressed with quickness and quality of our service.
The food was great! I applaud the kitchen staffs turnout time. They manage to get the food out quickly and don’t sacrifice quality to do it.
The best part was the amazing hostess and our incredible server!
I cannot speak highly enough about the woman that took care of our chaotic table! As well as her ability to make sure I was extra taken care of with my food allergy (fish of all things). In a restaurant that serves so much fish her attentiveness and knowledge helped me feel beyond secure in eating there.
We Cannot wait to go back again!!!

Great food with new menu items. The raw bar trio appetizer was superb with a Hendricks G&T. Baked scallops were sweet and tender. My only suggestion is to add espresso as an after dinner option.

The food was delicious cooked to perfection. I had fish & chips made with haddock just how I like it. Great service and theme. I’d definitely suggest it to anyone looking to enjoy a night out.

The unique name is what caught my attention and the location was great. When you first approach the tavern you are greeted by a friendly hostess with a bright smile. My brother and I decided to sit outside despite the windy and overcast weather. They had heaters set up all along the patio that accented the setting with the open flames. All the staff were friendly and quick to serve. The menu had an array of items to choose with an abundance choices of seafood. I decided to try their “Award Winning Clam Chowder” which was creamy, not too heavy, seasoned just right and balanced for a mouthful of clam chowdery goodness. Instead of getting just two lunch entrees we decided to pick a few starters and ordered their spicy tuna tacos, popcorn shrimp, and bacon wrapped scallops. Tuna was seared evenly with a peppercorn crust topped with sautéed peppers and onions wrapped in a corn tortilla. Popcorn shrimp were so so tasty we just kept popping one after another. The bacon wrapped scallops were perfectly cooked with bacon just right with the right amount of crispness and texture of the scallop and bacon was excellent.
Our experience at the Black Cat was memorable and will have us come back again.

We love this place! Could sit at the bar all night and eat that shrimp! The bartender makes the best spicy margaritas too! Can’t wait to go back next summer!

Atmosphere, service, food and being in downtown Chatham just adds to the magic! Make reservations for the dining room or go into the raw bar! Either one you can’t lose! Looking forward to next summer and get to enjoy their outside patio.

Great atmosphere and waitstaff. We have enjoyed the Raw Bar Happy Hour. the Chatham oysters are a favorite. Fish Tacos are also excellent.

Our favorite place to eat in Chatham! The food is excellent, the staff is suburb and the atmosphere is wonderful!! Can’t wait to get back to Chatham in the spring so we can do our weekly visit!!!!

Fresh, beautiful food. Flavor that allowed for the seafood to be the star. Great service, location, and selection.

Best meal I have had at the Cape this week with exceptional service.

Fabulous food! Sat at the bar tonight and had appetizers-shrimp, calamari and spring rolls. Absolutely amazing! Incredible bread pudding with cranberries too. Awesome service!

Extremely nice staff – welcoming to us and our small dogs (on the patio).  Offered blankets etc as it got chilly in the shade… We only had Oysters and apps ( calamari & the lobster quesadillas ) all were wonderful!   Great experience – especially with the idea of a quick app and drink in mind.

Our favorite Chatham restaurant during a three day stay, we visited during Restaurant Week and were able to take advantage of more reasonably priced menu options. My Portuguese Scrod was an excellent choice and a dish that I wish I could have again. Wonderfully fresh and mild fish was complemented by a flavorful broth and deliciously fresh vegetables all served on rice with ground chorizo. My clam fritters were my least favorite part of the meal but the apple tarte tatin was absolutely delicious.  Service was friendly, prompt and efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed this pleasant restaurant.

Anyhow, it was so good, and so worth it!! Bartender hooked us up, service was excellent, and the ambiance was just right. Hubby and I split the raw bar “Shore Road” and it did not disappoint. Our mansion stacked platters of raw bar were superb. Dessert and soups were wonderful. Whomever got the raw bar menu together for this really knew their audience.  We will be back!!

Seafood Sam’s Restaurant in Falmouth & Sandwich MA

In the summer of 1974, Sam’s Seafood  opened its first restaurant in a tiny, former laundromat with six employees, ancient equipment, and no seating. But Sam had a dream and a secret recipe: Offer the very best local seafood available and serve it with friendly, fast service at reasonable prices.
Seafood Sam’s Restaurant  in  Falmouth & Sandwich MA

Since 1974 Seafood Sam’s has been serving families just what they wanted. And now – with our menu expanded to over 100 items, friendly value pricing, large helpings, freshest ingredients and beautiful locations – we offer even more of what you want. Bring the whole family and enjoy our award-winning Cape Cod fare!

Here is some of the reviews

Seafood Sam’s Sandwich -There’s a lot to be said for an establishment that consistently delivers fresh, top-quality food in a familial atmosphere. The staff here is phenomenal and efficiently takes orders for long lines of customers, always with a friendly smile! Hint for visitors: if you want to order like a local, grab a menu before you get in line and choose your side beforehand (fries, rice or baked beans for lunch plates; same plus baked potato option for dinner; cole slaw, fries, rice or baked beans for sandwiches).
Literally everything on the extensive menu is amazing, but here are a few personal favorites:
-Fish tacos
-Seafood mac n’ cheese
-Fried haddock or broiled salmon sandwich
-Fried chicken with side of mac
Sam’s has a great gluten-free menu and is one of the few restaurants where my sister, who has a gluten allergy, can consistently go out to eat without worrying she’ll have a problem. There’s also something to be said for the fact that my grandfather, who is VERY particular about food and customer service and not afraid to complain if he’s dissatisfied, has never had a reason to do so here. In fact, he would choose Seafood Sam’s over any other restaurant for dinner.
I can guarantee you’ll leave happy if you come to Sam’s for a meal. And in the off chance that you don’t, the managers and owner of the company will do everything they can to make it right.

Seafood Sam’s Sandwich Have lived in Sandwich for 25+ yrs and Seafood Sams is the place to go for good natural seafood. Their clam chowder is outstanding as is their fish chowder. Their main dishes are extremely tasty, their side orders of fries, baked potato, baked beans, rice pilaf or the veggie of the day can change up your meal each time. The desserts – so very good. So this is the place to go for a great meal after a day at the beach, fishing, sailing or just enjoying your day.

Seafood Sam’s Sandwich Good seafood, GREAT lobster rolls. The onion rings are done perfectly. It’s a simple restaurant: one orders at the counter, 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 half crab meat). The lobster roll is the typical knuckle and claw meat, but nicely done on a toasted and buttered roll.

Seafood Sam’s FalmouthStopped in for lunch on the good word of a friend — good advice. I had fish &chips and my husband had fried whole clams.and scallops. Two empty plates and full bellies. Washed it down with a Cape Cod Blonde. No frills, seat yourself, just great seafood and fast, friendly service.

Seafood Sam’s Falmouth This place right here has me dreaming of fried scallops and clam strips all the way in Greensboro, NC (You can’t get good seafood ANYWHERE down here.) Seafood Sam’s is HANDS DOWN the best seafood on the Cape, always fresh, always delicious. And the team they have running that place is unmatched (Trust me, I was one of them 😉) Let me put it to you this way…..”If it ain’t Sam’s? Then it ain’t Seafood!!!” Love every one of you guys.
