Sam’s Chowder House in Half Moon Bay

Sam’s Chowder House in Half Moon Bay opened on October 20, 2006 and we were there. Today, it is still going strong. The popular cliff-side restaurant, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, serves traditional New England-style seafod. The food and views are incredible. If you’re looking for a fun place to hang out, stake out one of their Adirondack chairs outside and relax with a cocktail. Sam’s makes a killer Bloody Mary!

The spacious restaurant features large picture windows, offering diners dramatic ocean and marina views in a casual setting. Enjoy al fresco dining on Sam’s outdoor split-level deck, overlooking the ocean and Pillar Point Harbor. We love ordering their Crab Cakes, New England Clam Chowder and Maine Lobster Rolls. Fresh seafood and Fish & Chips are excellent too. When crab season is in (usually mid-November til late Spring), we love getting the Dungeness Crab Cocktail and Dungeness Crab Louis salad. And Sam’s Oyster Bar is popular with oyster lovers. The restaurant offers a nice selection of wine, beer and champagne. Sam’s bar is a fun place to relax and people-watch. An outdoor bar is also open on weekends.

So… if you happen to be in Half MoonBay and are looking for a nice restaurant for brunch, lunch or dinner (or a cocktail and appetizers), check out Sam’s Chowder House.
