About Sam’s Chowder Mobile
We are all about fresh, delicious, and affordable seafood, delivered conveniently. Our 225-seat seafood restaurant, Sam’s Chowder House, opened in October of 2006 in a beautiful site overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Half Moon Bay. Our customers gave us great feedback, and it quickly became clear that they couldn’t get enough of fresh, simply prepared seafood.Since everything else is mobile these days, it only made sense to make our seafood experience mobile too, and bring the party to you. So, after a year of planning and development, Sam’s ChowderMobile was born.

Sam’s ChowderMobile delivers…

  • Lunch and dinner for businesses throughout the Bay Area
  • Corporate and private “on-sites”, for companies that can no longer justify the travel cost of “off-sites” at restaurants, or just want to try something fun and different!From corporate meetings to company picnics, weddings, lunch or dinner, the ChowderMobile pulls up and the line forms here!
  • Lobster Clambakes – on the beach or a private location, for people who just want to have some fun, or celebrate a key life event such as a wedding, birthday, or family reunion
  • Community and Local Events – from street fairs and sporting events to farmers markets



Lewis Rossman, award-winning Executive Chef/Partner for Sam’s Chowder House and Sam’s ChowderMobile, has contributed to the success of some of the Bay Area’s top dining spots. As opening team member and later Executive Chef of Cetrella in Half Moon Bay, California, he won many accolades, including San Francisco Chronicle’s “Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants” list for three years in a row, and “Culinary Hospitality Restaurant of the Year” in the US by Sante, the Magazine for Restaurant Professionals, the only peer-judged awards program in America. As Chef de Cuisine Acquerello, rated one of Wine Spectator’s “10 best Italian Restaurants in the U.S.”, Rossman worked closely with award-winning chef Suzette Gresham.
