We heard decent things about this place, and ducked inside just as a severe thunderstorm struck Moorehead City. Food was OK. Wait staff was slow and actually changed 3 times in the first 20 minutes before we got our drinks. I had a very nice chewy shrimp dish. It was packed with flavor but chewy shrimp are not good. As...

While visiting Morehead we went to Sammy's. This isn't our first visit and won't be our last. Services was awesome and so was the food. We had the stuffed shrimp for an appetizer, yum good. I had the fried oysters for dinner. I asked for small oysters and the waitress said she watched the cook go through the oysters picking... More

First time in Morehead City, NC, we got hungry, asked around for a decent seafood place and had the misfortune of being directed to Sammy's. interior looked OK, nothing special but acceptable, the personnel were nice and polite so we decided to try it and ordered some fried calamari and the Whole Flounder Plate. The few calamari they served, so... More

After seeing Sammy's Facebook page we decided to give the restraint a try. It was a Thursday evening in prime season and we walked right in - that made me a little nervous. The restaurant was very open but loud. The hushpuppies and corn bread were very good. My wife ordered the stuff shrimp which were very good but the... More

Ate here twice during our stay, for both late lunch and dinner. Shrimp was fresh as it could be, they told us it came in off the boats across the street that morning. Fried grouper was awesome as well. Very few domestic beers available, they actually didn't have the brand we drink. Our waitress offered to go and get us... More

Went with my husband and we liked it so much we went back the next day. Oysters were good (and decently priced) and the flounder was fantastic as was the mahi mahi. We ate outdoors and had a nice meal both times and the waitstaff was courteous and not obnoxious (not bothering you every few minutes but keeping up with... More

The service was outstanding and the food was good. I thought the shrimp platter was a little greasy but overall tasty. The atmosphere and the seating were a little off though - can't put my finger on it but overall a good experience.
