    Nice outdoor seating facing the water. Much more than just chowder and lobster rolls. Good place for kids too.

    Its lobster roll was apparently named one of America's best sandwiches, but I felt that it didn't live up to the hype and the hour-long wait that we had to endure.

    The lobster roll is amazing, chocked full of lobster meat. The New England clam chowder even better. It had lots of flavor, not just cream and potatoes.

    Perfect little spot to enjoy a glass of wine, chowder or a really good conversation on a sunny day. Stay nice a cozy outside next the fire pit and enjoy the view.

    The lobster roll was amazing and delicious! The bread was buttery, the slaw was flavorful, and they didn't skimp on the lobster which was cooked to perfection. Also try the oysters and chowder!

    The seafood and dessert are very well done but if you want the best lobster, rolls or whole, go to The Nee England Lobster Company in Burlingame. They actually supply Sam's with their lobsters!!

    The food was pretty bad, service wasn't fantastic and everything was expensive. Bloody Mary's were decent? Worth getting a cocktail and sitting to admire the views. Other than that, it's all hype.

    Overpriced, crap presentation, stale fries, and an hour wait. The only thing worth going for is the stunning view. Sam's can't deliver on the hype.

    Everything we had. As a group of east coast folks we found the New England clam chowder to be one of the best! Anchovy, sardines, fish all great. Our waitress was great

    Lobster roll is generous with the lobster. Key lime pie is great too. Awesome view and outdoor area with live music from time to time.

    Crab cakes were a little too greasy inside. Fries were a little dry but well seasoned. Nice view of the bay
