We went to Seafood Sam's for dinner and ate lobster, fish and fried calamares. Staff was friendly. Unfortunately, all dishes were rubbery and at best tasteless. We could not eat anything and won't be back.

Great family dining with many seafood options! Always crowded but lines move quickly. For a taste of the Cape, don't miss Seafood Sams!

Nice atmosphere inside or out- fried clams and oysters were fresh and lightly fried- Steamers were good- if you like fried or broiled fish I would recommend this place. Reasonably priced
