My husband and I ate there 2 nights in a row. The first night we had the mahi mahi I had the grilled and he had blackened and both were great. It had a good taste and wasn't dried out. The second night we both had the blackened flounder and it was great also. Both waiters we had were on... More

Service was horrible. Our chewy calamari appetizer came out with our food. The grilled shrimp were swimming in butter with no grill marks in sight. The seafood fajitas had zero seasoning and were burnt to the serving dish. The scallops in the fajitas were way overlooked and rubbery. The only good things were the cole slaw and cornbread. Extremely disappointed... More

I have been to Sammys twice now. Just a plain ole country boy who likes to get his moneys worth when he does anything. Once I was with a date in the off season and dropped in to check it out. Service and food was great and for the money you left with a full belly and even some to... More

This was our second year going to Sammy's and we were not disappointed. Our server was excellent.....nice guy. We all enjoyed our meals, except for my mother. The burger had a strong onion taste, but they were quick to get her a replacement. Super nice! Very accommodating! Excellent draft selections, which to me is important. Pacifico on draft, wow....you do... More

It is often hard to find good restaurants open late on Sunday evenings, but Sammy's was waiting for us after a long day on the water. It was close to 9pm when we arrived and the staff were just as welcoming and energetic as they must have been at the beginning of their shift. Our orders were filled quickly and... More

We were in town on the 4th of July weekend to attend a family reunion. We are glad that we used TripAdvisor to select a restaurant, because many of the restaurants we normally have eaten at in the past, are now poorly rated. Based on the reviews on TripAdvisor, we selected Sammy's and we had a great meal. We both... More
