I was looking for a seafood place near Half Moon Bay and found this well-rated restaurant. First of all, the ambience is great. Not super casual, not super formal. They have patio seating which is what I recommend, it's quite refreshing and amazing. I had the New England Clam Chowder. It was good but not the best I've had. I prefer a more creamy and thick texture and this wasn't like that, but it was tasty! For mains I ordered the Half Moon Bay Petrale Sole, which was super creamy with mushrooms. The fish was indeed very fresh, apparently they get it daily so it's supposed to be fresh! I strongly recommend their fish. Upon the recommendation of the server I also tried the key lime pie which is something they make fresh everyday too, and it was quite delicious as well! I'll visit this restaurant again, perhaps to try their lobster dishes!
We came here during open business hours according to yelp and they were CLOSED! But the restaurant was open so we ordered to go. Kinda crazy because it was a Saturday afternoon... so not exactly off hours. We got the large clam chowder it was good. Not the best clam chowder I've ever had but definitely satisfied the craving. The parking lot is a MESS. I ended up just staying in the car because the lot was full and there was street parking half a mile down. The road was stopped with traffic & the cross traffic was going like 50 mph so crossing the street would be pretty crazy if we did park on the street. So my husband ran in and ordered the food while I waited. The service was quick. They had the food to us within 10-15 mins. I'm sure the food truck is probably a lot quicker.
We had Sam's cater our daughter's wedding in Bodega Bay. Kelsey, the events manager was wonderful in getting our order set up and answering all of our questions. She was able to provide alternative meals for our non seafood guests. The lobster clambake was fantastic and the guests were raving about it. I would highly recommend Sam's for any event and Kelsey and the entire staff are great.
