Good Eats, Half Moon Bay, Sam’s Chowder House

Sam’s Chowder House  4210 N. Cabrillo Hwy. (Hwy. 1), (650) 712-0245. L-D daily; $$$. Reservations taken. This New England-style seafood house boasts excellent views of the Pacific Ocean from almost every table. Outdoor seating is also an option. Specialties include fresh fish, live lobsters and crabs, and a raw bar. Choose from New England (white) or Manhattan (red) clam chowders, and count on the award-winning lobster roll sandwich as always a good choice. Drinks are creative and fun—anyone for a Strawjito? A seafood market (W-F 4-8, Sat-Sun 12-8.), sells locally caught fresh fish and specialty seafood items and side dishes plus picnics-to-go—the all-inclusive lobster clambake pot is an easy way to entertain right on the beach but requires 48-hours notice--and Sam’s is family-friendly, too.
