We love Seafood Sam's. You can get delicious fried foods but also healthier prepared seafood and salads. It is very relaxed and has great views of the Cape Cod Canal where huge boats pass by.

The cheesecake was very good! However, atmosphere was a lot like a fast food seafood restaurant. Very expensive for what we received. The location is close to woodshole near where Martha’s Vineyard ferry disembarks.
