Recommend, large portions of food especially vegetable appetizers served on bed of ice fresh and clean, the drinks perfect, so full that I had to ask for a doggie bag, worth every dollar including outdoor dining. Oh, I forgot the dinner I ordered consisted of ribs, steak, and Alaskan crab legs including rice with steamed vegetables. The waiters were polite... More

While I was sitting in Sammy's Fishbox Restaurant on City Island eating my delicious dinner, all I could think was if I was on death row, this would be what I would request as my last meal! That's how good it was. My friend raved about it, so I drove all the way out to City Island to try it... More

I went to Sammy's to celebrate Father's Day. I've gone there so many times & the food was amazing (organized on the plate in style with decor). On the day we went, I ordered my usual (Chef's Specialty, stuffed shrimp with crab). When the food arrived, it looked as if the food was thrown onto the plate quickly. The food... More

It wasn't easy driving here on a Sunday afternoon from New Jersey. We met some friends for dinner. The bread and corn muffin they put on the table was fresh and tasty. We ordered the calamari in a sweet red sauce and received the calamari in a spicy red sauce by accident. We didn't know until we started eating it.... More

I ate at this restaurant on holiday weekend, 27 May, with my partner & two friends on a wonderful warm spring evening. This was my last full day in NYC before returning to Europe. Formidable fin du parcours ! Despite being very busy, we were all seated together within 5 minutes of arrival. The menu is vast, requiring quite a... More

This is my first time at Sammy's and we were so happy with the food and service that we are already planning a return visit soon. The portions are large and you can share your selection with someone else. The baked clams and fried calamari were delicious. The steamed lobster was to die for along with the jumbo fried shimps....

Bring your appetite!! Went back after a few years remembering how good it was....forgot how large the portions are....every meal can feed 2 or more. But no worries you get a large tray to cart home the goods. Now only thing is if you need a reservation call them yourself do not make it on their website..this frazzled the hostess... More

For those who like myself have a limited budget, save up for this spot! The food is always fresh as well as tasty and the service compliments it. Great spot for families, couples, and almost any other type of pairs.
