Sam's is a friendly cafe with excellent food and great prices and entertainment in the bar.
Went there primarily to have a couple drinks, but instead ended up having a great burger and my gfriend a great grilled ham and cheese. The Pineapple teriyaki burger is a must. It is sloppy and very tasty.
The other great thing about the bar is $1 beers during happy hour. The drinks are well made without the disgusting seaside water. You want seaside water go down the street to Dundees. The bar also has pinball machines, board games, free snacks at the bar, and very good service.
Sam's, only one block from the beach, had the best bar I have seen in Seaside. It is right down from the Shilo.
Great place to get some burgers and a beer or two on a beach trip. Just steps off the beach, small place, not too crowded. Good beer selection. Great way to break up a trip to the beach to break for lunch. Kid friendly too.
