Sam's Chowder House, Half Moon Bay

I've seen some recent posts on Sam's, and I wanted to give you an update. We went over to Half Moon Bay on a whim and decided to check out Sam's since there seemed to be a fair amount of buzz about it - some good, some bad.

This falls in the bad category. The view and environment was great, but that was about it. Our waiter was distant, the chowder was watery (they proudly announce on the menu this is because they don't add flour - perhaps they should), the poke was VERY salty, the fish in the Fish & Chips wasn't done correctly (that with enough batter wasn't cooked all the way, and the rest were barely battered). All in all, for the price, it wasn't worth it. Is really too bad as the menu is great and the setting is wonderful.
