We really wanted to top off our vacation week on the Crystal Coast with good seafood dinner. Since we aren't locals we didn't really have any idea which place we should try; so we did some research on TripAdvisor and settled on Sammy's Seafood House. The atmosphere is fun but not fancy. It has sort of a bar and grill... More

You can take the boat to Jack's bar, have a few drinks, walk across the street to Sammy's and have some great food then walk back to Jack's for... More

I ordered the double dip shrimp and my wife ordered the shrimp stuffed with crab. Mine was good but I should have gotten the regular shrimp. The shrimp was... More

If you're looking for oysters done your way or fresh seafood, Sammys is your place. Check out the oyster special and you will have more than you can eat. We always have steamed oysters and Sammy's has a shucker at our table opening our oysters. The cornbread and hush puppies are to die for. Fresh fish is fresh and well... More

The crab cakes are wonderful. The menu includes regular dinners as well as sandwiches. For example, you can get a shrimp sandwich, etc. I liked their cole slaw and broccoli as well as the seafood.
