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.

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.

Moby Dick’s is the best Cape Cod seafood restaurant for friends and families to meet, eat and just have a good time  located in Wellfleet MA . Taking the New England clam shack to a new level, they will offer you and your family a great experience. 460089_10151394135215807_337514026_o

The freshest seafood, the best lobsters, Wellfleet littlenecks, Wellfleet oysters, Atlantic Cod, fried clams and clam chowder are just a few of the local items we serve up daily. We aim to be the best.

We have a fantastic kid’s menu & Gluten Free menu.

We love large groups, small groups, any group. We would be delighted to host your special Cape Cod event.

We are a BYOB establishment so grab your favorite beer or wine and head right over. (Bring Your Own Beer & Wine…No Charge!) We will provide a free bucket of ice, cups, and openers.

Open at 11:30 am everyday for lunch and dinner from the first Friday in May to Columbus Day,  through Columbus Day.

After exploring since 7 am this morning taking a break for early dinner…. LOVED the Wellfleet oysters, so FRESH… enjoyed the steamers so much last night, I had some more, along with local mussels in their bucket with an ear of fresh steamed corn…. GREAT FOOD, WARM AND FRIENDLY SERVICE! Really enjoyed this quiet time between lunch and dinner… the parking lot is starting to fill up with families young and old…. let the summer  weekend begin!

I ate there for the first time last night and both the food and the staff were wonderful! I was really impressed by the greeter by the door, he gave us menus, recommendations and even a bucket of ice and cups for our wine. We’ll definitely be going back!

We ate here twice during our one week stay on Cape Cod. Loved it! The staff made eating gluten free a no-hassle experience and the GF changes did not affect the quality of the food. The scallop sandwich was awesome! We will be back! Thank you!

We stopped here on our way back from P-town. I have never had a lobster roll so this was my first and it was really good! I will definitely order one again based on my experience here. The best part about the restaurant is their service, such nice young men and women serving there! And the environment there is very laid back and relaxing. Great place!

First trip to this place. We love the layout and the atmosphere. Had boiled lobstah and lobstah roll platter. Both were quite delicious. I highly recommend this during your Vacation travels.

Our favorite place to dine at the Cape.  Once again had a fabulous meal. The line was long but well worth the wait. We always return to Moby Dicks every year (20+ years) because of the great food but more importantly , the great service. One of the employees came by with slices of watermelon while we waited. We enjoyed scallops, burgers, lobster, seared tuna, crab cakes and everything was delicious as always. The employees are always courteous and pleasant. Sarah (from Ireland) who took our orders was so lovely. We were a group of 7 adults and a baby and had a fabulous time. Thanks again to Moby Dicks for always making our yearly visit so wonderful. See you next year!

Here are their reviews

Spanky’s the best fried whole belly clams on Cape Cod and don’t forget Captain Merle’s Seafood Stew.. Actually their food is the best lobster rolls are amazing, mussels totally delicious, and you can’t beat the view the atmosphere the smiling staff.. absolutely love this place

We are fortunate to spend time on Cape Cod & the Vineyard all year. We have favorite restaurants from Provincetown to Woods Hole. Spanky’s is our favorite in Hyannis and we visit a few times every year. The scallops are to die for. The service is wonderful. Thank you Judy! The views of the harbor from the outdoor dining area are beautiful. We will return!

Spanky’s wide variety of clams can satisfy anyone whose in pursuit for eating some clams. Every time I go to Spanky’s, I leave feeling fully satisfied and always find myself coming back for more. Go for the friendly atmosphere, go for the fun, but more importantly, go for the clams.

Spanky’s is far from a shack! Very clean and large restaurant that also has a great patio area, BIG plus is the friendly, pleasant, staff and Linda was helpful with recommendations for the islands! If you want great seafood go here! For an app we got scallops wrapped in bacon, which was delicious. I am extremely picky with seafood, yes a New Englander that won’t eat seafood especially at chain restaurants, and I must say I cleared my haddock plate! A waitress that wasn’t even ours asked if we wanted rolls and brought them over. Everything came quick from alcoholic beverages, to app’s and we didn’t have room for dessert since the plates come in a hefty portion size. The price was great for 2 people and the view of the harbor was great.

I absolutely love Spankys! We get to the Cape 3 or 4 times a year and always make sure it’s one of our food stops. The menu is big enough for all our tastes and the price (for the Cape) is very reasonable. Can’t wait to get back there this year

another wonderful dinner at Spanky’s this week. The lobster salad is an incredible dish! The service was perfect and sitting outdoors on a lovely evening was a joy. I’m a Cape Codder and I love the consistent excellence that Spanky’s always achieves

Here are the reviews

This is the main reason we love this place: The Lobster Club sandwich

I grew up in Orleans and have dined at the claw quite a few times over the years and the food just keeps getting better every time. The owner is always anxious as the host to make sure mine and other guests experience at his restaurant are pleased beyond our satisfaction. I never say no to the Lobster Claw!

We have been in Orleans for a Family Reunion and this was our big group dinner out. We could not be happier! The food was excellent, the service was superb (thank you Lily!) and the owner chatted with us for quite some time full of knowledge and humor. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone

Great place the lobster roll is my favorite. Best lobster roll in Orleans

Not bad at all. I do think that it would be great to use some cajun seasoning on the fries just for taste, but the fried lobster was very good.

Have been going to the Claw for 40 years! Never disappoints. Wonderful lobster rolls.

Our favorite restaurant on Cape Cod. Always visit a few times during our yearly trips
I recommend the shrimp cocktail, fried lobster and the lobster newburg.

Love the early bird special. Favorites include broiled scallops or fried lobster. However, their grape nut custard is the best!

Best place to eat for seafood we stop in 2 times during the week we are at the cape

Went into the Lobster Claw on a Sunday night for dinner and all I can say was what a great idea! This place is very unique, lobster traps and cute blue booths make up a great decor that is warm and inviting  We started off with Oysters, Little Necks and Steamers and they were all very large portions, fresh and delicious. The drawn butter was endless and the wine was tasty.  I ended up getting a Boiled Lobster which was very big and super fresh! My friends got the Fisherman’s Platter which was too big to finish. Also, a Lobster salad sandwich which was plentiful and scrumptious 🙂

Here are some of the reviews

This is one of my favorite places on the Cape! It reminds me of a smaller version of Thompson’s Clam bar. I have such fond memories growing up as a child and going there. The staff is so friendly the food is so fresh and The stuffed 2 pound lobster is a must the best I have ever had! We go every year for the views of the sunset and the lobster! Our B and B recommended this and it was one of the top places to go!

My favorite place on the Cape good food, service and the setting is great looking out over the bay, looking forward to going back soon.

So good will be back soon !  Fresh Oysters, crab cakes, lobster, cod & scallops

Best, freshest seafood meal! Friendly and very accommodating staff! Wonderful, romantic ambience! What more can you ask for??

We ate right at sunset which is spectacular from the view this restaurant has. Our waitnress  was fantanstic the entire  time. The lobster was prepared just right. The chilled raw platter was perfect. A bit pricey but that is to be expected on the Cape this time of year.

We’ve been coming here for special occasions ever since I was a kid. I brought my new boyfriend here for his birthday a few weeks ago, and we had a fantastic time. The ambiance is always classy yet slightly Cape casual for a nice restaurant. Preppy casual will do. There is valet parking so don’t forget cash to tip! When we arrived there was a bit of a late as we surfed on the tail end of the dinner rush, but once seated we were promptly brought water and menus. The view of the harbor is incredible especially at sunset.

Delicious chowder, great view, friendly service. Always an enjoyable meal.

We ate dinner there last Friday night. We arrived early and were seated early at a window table. Chowder was very good. We ordered two baked stuffed haddock dinners, two grilled swordfish and one broiled swordfish. The fish entrees were incredible…after a summer of dinners on the cape, we all said that these fish dinners were the best we had eaten this summer….obviously freshly caught and perfectly cooked with delicious sauces. Portions were ample. Desserts were equally good. Our waitress, Kendall, could not have been friendlier or more professional. Service was excellent. The atmosphere was great with live music. Best meal this summer! Prices were very reasonable given the location, service and quality of the food.

The QD has the consistently best seafood in the Falmouth area. Order a lobster roll. The lobster meat is pristine and overflowing. Don’t order the lobster sandwich unless you haven’t eaten for three days. Food: excellent. Prices: reasonable. Atmosphere: you won’t feel out of place laughing. Martinis: they don’t serve doubles because the glassware isn’t big enough and you probably shouldn’t have two that size anyway.. Value: The Best in Town.

The best seafood I have ever eaten in the Cape! Love the design and stained glass windows too. We will return.

Best lobster rolls in Falmouth!! Had the opportunity to eat here on a family vacation. Can’t wait for the chance to go back again!!

Fantastic food , if you have to wait s bit to get a table it will be well worth the wait. The August September swordfish is local and by far the best I have had . Enjoy the locals, very friendly atmosphere makes me want to move here.

We live in Falmouth. It is the first restaurant we ate in as a family and we continue to come back! Always something on the menu for everyone. Love the atmosphere!!!  We loved it. The inside looks like the inside of a ship. The food was amazing!! Service was phenomenal. Clearly the best meal of our trip . . . So far!! The baked stuffed lobster made our traveling friend very happy!! My husband said the seafood pot was okay could have had more seafood for him.  Nantucket  scallops were the best I ever had. The butternut squash was very good along with mashed potatoes. Fresh rolls started our meal off great!!

Not sure why it took me so long to comment on this or to find their fb page as we have been going to Kream N’ Cone since growing up myself in West Dennis over 50 years ago! They have the best Seafood, Onion Rings and Frappes you could possibly find anywhere! Quick service too even when the line is long inside which is a good indication of how great their food is here! We will definitely be going back at least several times again this year when we are down on the Cape!

I have been going here with my family for about 12 years!! We all love it!! Food is Delicious !
One other thing that makes it nice is that the Owner is actually there working hard and helping out. Great Family place to take your family Highly recommend

Kream and Kone is one of our destinations whenever our family is on the Cape. Their fresh seafood is the best I have ever had. The onion rings are amazing. I highly recommend visiting Kream and Kone if you like seafood…

Still one of the best seafood joints on the cape. Always busy and in a prime location.We did the take out Clam strips, and although very good, the price was quite high for Strips. The onion rings are still the best on the cape.

Couldn’t wait to get back to Cape Cod and come here for my fresh fried seafood fix. We both had a combo of clams scallops and oysters with onion rings. It is so fresh and delicious and not greasy with a light batter. Nothing beats this place

One of the best meals ever! Lobster Avocado Cocktail for a starter and the Pan Roasted Lobster for dinner was to die for! The Key Lime Pie was “the real deal”! Shawn was a great host, even helping us to memorialize our family dinner, by taking the group picture and surprising us with a wonderful selfie of himself! Kathy, our waitress, was wonderful! And her suggestion of the pie, for dessert, was spot on!

We are just finishing our amazing lunch, the food and Jim our waiter were excellent. Thank you for a great experience.

My wife and I go every time we’re in PTown. Two nights in a row this weekend! Their little neck appetizer baked with linguica, Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs is a must try!! Cassie and Winston in the upstairs bar are efficient and characters to say the least. A laugh a minute and Cassie runs a well oiled ship up there. Best pomegranate margaritas! We’ll be back for sure!

So if you walk by and think to yourself this looks like a tourist trap, don’t let that deter you from the experience of your lifetime in Ptown! Not only a phenomenal lunch but the best bloody marys hands down! I mean second to none in Ptown! Cassie and Winston at the upstairs bar are amazing! Like a well oiled machine, you wonder how they make such marvelous drinks, are right on top of service, and still find time to treat you with love! And don’t even skip the seafood people! It’s amazing! The Lobster Pot gets a surprise 5 stars from me…a very picky food and bloody critic!

Mac’s Shack and Mac on the Pier Restaurant in Wellfleet

Mac’s Shack Restaurant  of Wellfleet  looks like your typical Cape Cod clam shack, but the food is a step above .Mac’s Shack embodies the epitome of a nicer, sit-down seafood restaurant   They serve sushi, pan roasted halibut with lobster mashed potatoes, local mussels, fresh oysters and more.

Nighty specials include the catch of the day. Up front, Ichi-San and protege Stephen-San turn prime cuts of fish into sushi that draws a devoted crowd. But a juicy strip steak with a sparkling crunch of Wellfleet sea salt explains why meat lovers adore them as well.  They also have an outstanding raw bar.


Macs on the pier wellfleet ma

That copper-topped beauty out front is the bar. Cocktails with homemade infusions, a good wine list, and cold beer on tap—all within reach of our Wellfleet oysters and clams. We shuck to order.

The whitewashed dining room fills a 19th century house that was once a nautical shop. The lobsterman on the roof is an homage to the Lobster Hutt, circa 1971.

Now if you want a clamshack, Mac has created that as well  Right on Wellfleet Harbor you can get fresh seafood as well while you eat at picnic tables!   You can get fried seafood, lobster and even sushi.

If you want to cook your fish at home, Mac’s has 3 marketplaces including Wellfleet, Eastham and Truro!

Here is are some reviews

Best sushi ,fun bar ,nice spot on the water ,always crowded because it’s so good.

Our favorite spot on Cape Cod. Especially love eating the best oysters at the outside bar. Great vibe �

Stopped in at 5 o’clock for pre-dinner happy hour totally enjoyed a dozen oysters the spicy tuna roll and a couple of cocktails recommend the El Mescalito. Recommend stopping in at five if you just want to pre-dinner drink and appetizer otherwise parking may be difficult to attain. Our waitress was great and great experience tonight.

Excellent raw bar, cocktails, halibut with the Lobster mashed potatoes and excellent service. It’s always lively with and energetic atmosphere and lovely view.

After a day cycling the Rail trail from Wellfleet to Dennis, a local recommended we stop here for the Oysters. It didn’t disappoint. The service was terrific. After a dozen Wellfleet, we each had the butter poached lobster. Delicious.

A Wellfleet staple that must be visited. I’ve been going since the 1970s.

Be prepared to have some of the best seafood of your life. You might wait in line for a little while before ordering or for a table, but it’s so worth

Wow!!! Fantastic food for my nephew’s wedding rehearsal and post-wedding brunch. The quality of the food was superb. And they were so creative in accommodating those of us with gluten allergies.

A delightful dinner on Cape Cod near Hyannis, MA. Clam chowder & fish & chips.

I always stop by for a beer and some coconut shrimp on my way to and from Nantucket- always delicious and so relaxing sitting on the deck enjoying the view and the sunshine!

A local recommended the food here. Didn’t disappoint. The scallops and fish and chips were outstanding. And the service was great too. Table right on the water

Well folks I haven’t been there for quite a while but kiddos, the view is to die for . Your litterly right on the water, and watching the High line boats coming and going through the inner harbor is breathtaking
Now the food years ago was delicious , I don’t think it’s changed any. And now the drinks, always strong enough and one for every occasion, nothing better than a Pins Colada outside on a sunny summer day.

I have been coming to Baxter’s for decades. Came for late lunch today. Just wanted a small plate (normally I like their lobster salad with green salad or their fried fish or fried whole belly clams). First time ordering their scallops wrapped in bacon with rice. Well done! 6 big scallops! With nice Chardonnay, nice outside seat overlooking the harbor, and nice server–happy to have gone back again. Will return next year too!

I have eaten here many times and the food is great as is the scenery!

Loved this place when I was a kid. Hoping to be there this coming summer. I hope the fried clams and haddock are still scrumptious.

Great place to go during the day for lunch on the boat and a great place for dinner and drink at night.

The BEST seafood chowder ever! I’ve been several times and waitstaff ,food and amazing view never disappoint! Keep it up!

A must for anyone visiting Hyannis. Order the Lobstah dinner with buttah. You know you want to.

Fried perfection! Clam chowder is the BEST on the Cape!
