Really fresh seafood

This was a friendly place. Being from out of state, we didn't know what amberjack fish was or what type of crabs they had. The waitress was very helpful in making selections. It is not fancy, but had good food.

Sam's has been sold and remodeled...new owners also own Olde Bay Seafood by the marina. Open as of October 2nd, 2015. VERY loud inside, somewhat limited menu. Fried oysters were excellent. Will try it again when early kinks are worked out.Good luck.

One of the first places we ever ate in Dunedin and never went back. Hopefully it has improved. The oil was over used so the fried fish was terrible. There are great old photos on the walls of the area back in the day. This is a great location but needs a total revamp of interior and menu.

You will not be disappointed eating the smoked mullet at Sam's! I was told restaurant smokes their own fish. The hush puppies, potato salad and turnip greens were just as awesome. I totally enjoyed my meal and my waitress was great. When in Dunedin, I always stop at Sam's for fresh seafood & great service.

The combo two meals for $22 was a good price but the food was not so good. They have just a few local fish to offer, the sides are not good at all. Also, they don't have a wine menu but you can still have a glass, no need to ask what type or origin it is, they don't know!... More

Sam's is closed on Monday. They offer an early bird dinner menu as well as a full service menu. I especially like fried oysters, the cat fish dinner and stone crab legs, (when in season). The home made desserts are always tempting.

Saw some good reviews. But. I won't go back. $11.95 for ONE crabcake. Really? I ordered the shrimp. And scallop scampi. Scallops under cooked. Shrimp over cooked. Then had to open packages for butter and sour cream. I couldn't WITH the prices they charge i shouldn't have to struggle with ANY. packages. Its not McDonald's. Tables to close together outside...

Love to eat at Sam's. Off the main town a bit but the food and atmosphere is just wonderful and the staff is very attentive. The seafood is fresh and selection is very good and it is just hometown!.

Extremely fresh seafood!!! Sam goes out and catches the stone crab claws every day. Get there early because they may sell out. The grouper was super fresh and just arrived while we were dining. The desserts are homemade and the service was superb. 5 stars!!!!

Thank Frampy24
