Sam’s Chowder House has been on the beach for about 5 years. They serve new England style cuisine. We wandered in for dinner and drinks. Started with an order of calamari, a bowl of chowder and fresh sourdough bread. It was all delicious, as well was served quite quickly. For dinner we ordered large prawns stuffed with dungeness crab and bacon wrapped. It came with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. Our other entree was a whole lobster, halved and grilled with asparagus and steamed broccoli. Again, dinner was served promptly. Service all around was nice. Between all the apps and dinner, we needed “to go” boxes !!!!!!! Over all atmosphere was great, looking out on the ocean and sun down. It was foggy so we didn’t get to see a sunset, but it was pleasant. The place is quite popular so reservations are recommended. 4 Stars
