Very Good food and service especially if you want an acoholic beverage with your food. For those of us who do not drink and do not want our children in a bar atmosphere there is a Take Out right across the street. The girls over there do not mind if you order take out and go to the bar for a drink while you wait. Sometimes there is a long wait on both sides, they are not McDonalds or Burger King it even says so on the menu. The prices did get a little ridiculus but its understandable with the economy these days.They do charge for extra sauce but sometimes they let it slide unless you want 3 or more then they really have to charge. Seafood is just like Gasoline the prices change frequently.

So go in have a drink relax and enjoy the food!!!!

Cons: run out of food, very busy all the time especially weekends

Definitely gives you that sea shore atmosphere even though it is no where near water. Food is great and if you get to get there when weather is nice, outside seating make it that much better.

i really enjoyed going to this place first off when you get inside it looks and feels like your in a boat ,they have fishermans nets hanging from above with shells also there are port holes on the walls that make it feel like your at sea. the food was wonderful the staff were all very nice..so if you want to go out for dinner or just drinks this place is worth checking out.

We happened upon Sam the Clam's restaurant on a recent trip from Massachusetts to our home in New Jersey. It was a great "find"-- a bustling bar and restaurant, its parking lot full on a Sunday evening, the bar band playing away, and a wonderful back deck filled with tables, and, yes, another bar, Polynesian roof and all. Clientele seemed to be a happy and loud mix of families, bikers, and assorted others, all happily munching their way through a variety of (mostly) fried seafood platters, including the best fried shrimp I've ever had. Good cole slaw, and excellant lobster bisque as well. Moderate prices round out the experience.

Pros: Superb fried seafood and soups, great atmosphere and bars

Cons: Not much other than fried dishes.

The best hot (you can get cold) Lobster Roll I have ever eaten. Their seafood baskets, (my personal favorite is the Scallop Basket) are the best in New England. Eating outside on the patio in good weather is a treat, especially with a bar available on the patio. Also, it is well known by bikers as the best pub in the area, so be prepared for the motorcycles in the parking lot. Overall recommendation - Outstanding! Remember that it's a Sports Bar, with lots of TV's turned to all sorts of sports, so a lot of the fine dining rules don't apply. But I think it's one of the best Sports Bars in New England.

Sam the Clams has very good food selections for a pub type environment. The seafood is especially tasty and good. I really enjoyed the shrimp. The atmosphere was like being on a ship. Nautical and fun!!!!! Good $ buys!!!
