Seafood Sams Falmouth

In the summer of 1974, Sam's opened its first restaurant in a tiny, former laundromat with six employees, ancient equipment, and no seating. But Sam had a dream and a secret recipe: Offer the very best local seafood available and serve it with friendly, fast service at reasonable prices.

The restaurant is very busy. Customers come and order at a counter, seat themselves and pick-up their food from a kitchen window. Opening shifts start at 9/10am and closing shifts work until around 9pm.

About Cape Cod:

Cape Cod, a hook-shaped peninsula of the U.S. state of Massachusetts, is a popular summertime destination. It's the site of quaint villages, seafood shacks, lighthouses, ponds and bay and ocean beaches. In the large town of Hyannis, the John F. Kennedy Museum is the first stop on the Kennedy Legacy Trail through downtown, where ferries depart to the resort islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. The Cape itself has a lot of history and there are ample beaches which attract heavy tourism during the summer months.

Cape Cod towns is rural with small towns. For nature enthusiasts, Cape Cod is a great place to spend a quiet summer. With that being said, Cape Cod has very LIMITED public transportation. There is a regional bus with limited hours so most student bike or walk everywhere. Often time housing is rather far from “downtown” areas. Cost of living is high on Cape Cod so expect things (housing, food, etc) to be expensive!
