  • Best lobster roll on the west coast --from a masshole
  • Lobster roll and New England clam chowder! The bowl is huge!
  • Maybe the best lobster roll I have had on the West Coast. The NE Clam Chowder was great, too. Not too creamy.
  • Hoegarden on tap !!! Awesome ;-)
  • Try the lobster meat crepe with sea salt and raw honey. It's divine.
  • Beautiful view!
  • Have the chowder. Must.
  • Try the Lobster Roll (Sandwich)
  • The lobster roll is a must have. Sooooo much lobster.
  • Outside table!!!
  • The lobster rolls and key lime pie are amazing, but the bet part about Sam's is the live music and patio view!
  • Spicy bloody mary + oysters on the half shell.
  • Take my advice and get the lobster roll and key lime pie and you will thank me!
  • New Englad clam chowder done right. The lobster roll is decadent, and worth a try.
  • Don't fall down the steps after drinking too much like my girlfriend did lol
  • Get extra drawn butter for your lobster roll.
  • My husband loved the lobster roll and you can't beat the view!
  • Every dish we ordered was in really poor quality. Including the The California king salmon and sword fish. Stay away.
  • The lobster roll is incredible and so is the New England chowder!
  • Lobster and seafood seviche are both perfect. King salmon and halibut are local and fresh.
