Sam's is open daily for indoor and outdoor dining and takeout.
Face coverings are required indoors unless seated and dining. Our fall hours are 11:30 - 8:30 Monday through Thursday, 11:30 - 9:00 Friday, and 11:00 - 9:00 on the weekend. Please note the closing time is the last seating.
ONLINE ORDERING IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE due to technical issues.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Most items on our full menu are available for takeout -- please go to our main website to view menus at www.samschowderhouse.com.
ORDER IN PERSON OR BY PHONE: Visit our outside takeout window at the restaurant, or call 650 712-0234 to place your order. Be sure to ask for utensils if needed, as they aren't automatically provided due to California's disposable foodware ordinance.
Please wait in your car or on the beach, and we'll email or text you when your order is ready. Thank you!
Weekend peak hours are between 1 pm and 6 pm. Please expect takeout orders to take a minimum of 30 minutes to be prepared, sometimes longer depending upon how busy we get. We appreciate your patience.
Our team is taking all precautions advised by the San Mateo County Health Department, including frequent hand washing and sanitizing of surfaces, and wearing face coverings if unvaccinated. We ask that you follow the guidance from our staff, to continue keeping us all safe.
Please be aware that gatherings pose a heightened risk of COVID-19 transmission, and that older adults and individuals with existing health conditions are at particularly serious risk if they contract the virus, and should not attend.
Please stay healthy and safe!
