Sam's Chowder House website states that Sam's Chowder sold their Palo Alto location back in December, 2016. I must have missed mention of this in the review.

The original Sam's Chowder House still remains in HMB as well as their Chowder Mobile with a list of locations on their website.

I will continue to go to Sam's when I am in HMB, but, thanks to this review, will take the Palo Alto location off of my list of places to try.

This very website states that the article you commented on is from April 2014. Possibly that was the point you missed.

(Old articles like this sometimes abruptly appear at the top of the News or Town-Square page -- and occasionally garner responses from unattentive readers -- because earlier, some night-crawler spammer, one of those who go around the 'net in odd hours looking for public websites that take anonymous unregistered comments, placing off-topic comments on them with links to whatever horrible little product or firm paid them to do it -- and really, can you imagine actually buying something advertised that way?? -- the spam comment then causing the article to pop to the top of the recently-commented stack. Then, in the morning, the spam comment was routinely cleared out by the newspaper's employees [part of the daily chores, like emptying the garbage, or hosing off the front sidewalk to remove whatever appeared there overnight], but the site software doesn't then restore the article to its former obscure position buried among hundreds of others from recent years.)

It's easy enough to avoid the embarassment of posting comments to years-out-of-date articles, by noticing their date line.
