Not only is the ambiance nice and the waitstaff friendly, but the fresh fish was delicious. Hush puppies and corn bread are complimentary and the hush puppies are the largest I've ever seen. They look like jumbo shrimp. My husband and I both ordered the Grouper, as we were informed it was fresh and just cut. He ordered it blackened... More

After rave reviews I Our State magazine eagerly decided to try it. Won't be back. Beer served in 8 oz mugs at 16 oz prices; expensive prices; used the crab dip to stuff the flounder. Marion P

I was hopeful after seeing a review in a statewide magazine, but never again. I was served craft beer in an 8 oz. "college beer mug"; really? I ordered stuffed flounder only to discover that the "stuff" was the restaurant's crab DIP; really? What a total disappointment.

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.

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 here again.

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,
