Excellent Food & Friendly Wait staff

The food was awesome for the price. The stuffed flounder with twice baked potato was very delectable and very filling, so much so that a big man like me couldn't finish it all. The double dipped shrimp was the bomb and could feed a hearty appetite. The atmosphere was warm and quaint. I would eat... read more

This place is terrific!!!!!!!!! Can't say enough about it. The food is out of this world & I have been to many restaurants here in Morehead. Our server Doris was super - so nice & friendly. The prices are reasonable and you won't leave feeling hungry or disappointed. You would be a fool if you don't give sammys a try.... More

The Trigger Fish was cooked to perfection. The baked potato that accompanied it was just OK. the coleslaw was good but not cold. Hush puppies very good. Cornbread was average. The lump crab stuffed Jumbo Shrimp were just OK.

Fresh seafood right off the boat, served with a big smile. Great atmosphere, views of the Morehead City NC charter fleet with fresh catches coming off the boats.

We stopped here for a Friday dinner in the off-season. We were greeted immediately and seated just as quick. We were seated in the oyster bar area even though we weren't having the all-you-care-to-eat oyster special. We had a spacious booth that would've seated 4 easily and maybe even 6. Our server, Julie, was over shortly to get our drink... More

Sammy's has wonderful fresh seafood. We had their oysters and their tuna sandwich. Both were extremely fresh, and the tuna is one of the best I have ever had. Enjoy the restaurant for a great place for lunch,

Visited Atlantic Beach and had to come back another time since our Christmas day visit. The oysters are still outstanding as is the grilled triggerfish. And the wait staff is awesome! So happy the quality of Sammys is consistent!

We had planned to eat at Captain Bill's but they were closed for the season. Sammy's was just across the street so we went there. The health rating was 93 so I should have known better than to expect a great meal. The clam strips were over cooked and tough. I would consider it a very small portion for the... More

We were out and about in Morehead, and decided we wanted to try something new for lunch. We stopped into Sammy's. My partner ordered the flounder which she said was the best flounder she had ever had. I ordered a friend shrimp platter. We both shared the stuffed shrimp appetizer, which was delicious. Service was excellent, our drinks never were... More

One of the best meals I have ever eaten in a restaurant. What a very nice surprise! Friends had recommended two other places to eat, but (luckily!) they were both closed. I really lucked into a treasure.
