A great beach view

The best thing about Sam's is sitting outside and watching the dolphins. The food is good and the atmosphere is amazing!

Sam's Beach Bar is a great place to go to to see the sunset on the Gulf of Mexico. You can't beat the view. The food is good and so are the drinks. My complaints are about two things. When they have the band playing it is so loud that the waitress has trouble hearing your order and there's no... More

This outdoor beach bar/restaurant is right on the water on the 50 yard line of the sunsets. The food is casual, but very, very good. I recommend the Fish Tacos and the Pulled Pork Nachos, especially.

Great waterfront spot to eat dinner and watch the sunset! I was surprised at how good the food is here -- very crowded for good reason. My favorite is the planked shrimp appetizer with feta cheese -- enough for a meal! I enjoy watching the boats travel by while we're eating. And the sunsets are legendary! Well worth the drive...

I've lived in the area for some time and this was my first visit to Sam's Beach Bar. It was great. Our waiter, Angel, was attentive and fun. We had the fried dill pickle appetizer that comes with ranch dressing and they were terrific. Had the shrimp basket and have posted a picture, it was a nice surprise with such... More

We visited Sam's on a Friday evening and got seated before sunset. The views of the Gulf and the sunset here are truly spectacular. Sam's is a beach side bar and restaurant , with no indoor seating. There is seating under cover, but no air conditioning. You need to know this if it's a ridiculously hot day. They do have... More

Met friends at tiki bar. Walked next door to have lunch. Food was good. The day before,we went to the full service restaurant across the street. I was expecting better food and drink than at bar across the street. And my expectations were met. It's very clean, comfortable booths. I had stuffed salmon which was excellent. The fish was fresh.... More

This is the first time I tried this combination and I brought home half to my husband. He loved it so much we went back for more! The fried pickles were great also. Though it is outdoors, most of the restaurant is under a roof with ceiling fans. The breeze off the water is really nice.

Went two nights in a row! Both nights (Fri & Sat) had live bands that were REALLY GOOD! The mixed drinks were reasonably priced and mixed right, the beer ice cold, the ocean breeze and sunset views incredible. We danced the night away!
