Great Atmosphere

Family Friendly "bar and patio" on the beach. The channel ran right in front of the patio and there were numerous fishing boats heading out. The sunset was amazing. Fair food, fair prices.

I have been to Sam's beach bar quite a few times, evenings, nights, evenweekends, and have always had an excellent experience there. Good food good music. I'll be back there soon with my family for everything that's there. They always find a way to make a good night even better.

Nice casual outdoor sunset dinning on the Gulf coast. We have been here several times (always with parties of 6 to 12 people) and we never know if we're going to get the "good Sam's" or the "bad Sam's". I think the servers get tables by arrival order, and are therefore tending to tables scattered all over the place, resulting... More

Stopped for a drink and had dessert. Chocolate nachos. Sounded unique & worth a try. We were not disappointed. Enough to share. Would definitely get them again.

I really like the atmosphere here. The waiters and waitresses are very friendly, the view is great, I always like what I order, and the live music in the afternoon and evening is always upbeat.

Amazingly surprised at the quality of the food! Superb! We crab fritters as an appetizer and they are delicious. I had shrimp and cheesy grits and the portion was enough for three people easily.

This is a classic place that everyone knows about. Our server Angel was very good and busted his butt to get to all of his tables which were spread out all over due to the way they assign the tables. They need to rethink how they assign the wait staff their tables, because in the end, customer service suffers. The... More

First I dislike that almost every seafood dish is "market" priced. I ordered 1 lb steamed shrimp in old bay butter. There was not one speck of old bay used nor put into drawn butter. I had to ask. Scallops serving was very small. Mango slaw left a lot to be desired. I must say staff was very friendly and... More

Nicest location around, but the prices.food and service are left to your imagination. Great bands and views and cold drinks, but skip the food.

We enjoy having lunch or dinner at Sam's. The oysters and shrimp are always fresh. The beer is always cold and the service is always terrific. I love their fish and chips.
