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....

The food and service is great. I always order the fisherman's platter. You get a lot of food for a great price. You can never go wrong,,

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.

Sammy's a great place to eat. We've had many birthday and graduation celebrations there. The food is always good and plentiful. Weekdays are the best times for good service. Weekends after about 6 pm it gets busy, so the wait can be longer according to the size of your group.

I really enjoy eating at Sammy's restaurant in City Island. It's simply the best seafood restaurant there is, hands down!!!! I encourage everyone to try it at least once.
