    Picture of Sam's from the car

    When we went to Old Point Comfort Marina in the fall of 2000, the only place to eat nearby was the Chamberlein Hotel. I understand there are several restaurants in Phoebus that might be within a reasonable walking distance of the marina. This place is probably one of them. It is right outside the base gate.

    We have not actually eaten at this restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: Sam's seems to be a popular location for the dinner meetins of local organizations. I copied the following menu which was $15 to $18.00

    MENU: Choice of the following entrées:
    Fish of the Day (fried)
    Sam’s Special (crab cake and 3 fantail shrimp)
    Fried Oysters
    Fried Medium Shrimp
    Broiled Fish of the Day
    Broiled Shrimp and Scallop Sauté
    Pasta Seafood (Shrimp tossed with Angel Hair pasta and
    veggies in garlic butter)
    Delmonico Steak (6 oz)
    Chopped Steak with Mushrooms (7-8 oz)
    Grilled skinless Lemon Pepper Chicken Breast
    All dinners served with one trip to salad bar, baked potato, coffee or tea, chef’s choice of desert. No substitutions.

    Favorite thing: Although there has been a community here since the 1600s, it wasn't until after the Civil War that there was much cohesion to it. Harrison Phoebus owned a hotel and a lot of property around in the area. About 1870 there were a handful of catch-penny stores around the gates of the National Soldiers Home. Here during the War between the States was Camp Hamilton, concentration point for Union troops.
