Yum!

Great food! From fish to fajitas all was delicious. No wait, great hush puppies to start and very good food to follow. A little loud in the main eating area, but good service.

We put our serve Drew to the test. 10 people, several special orders, one late arrival, and only 1 mess up on the divided tab. The food was great from the blacked flounder, to stuffed shrimp, and steaks, all prepared to perfection. We will be back on our next trip.

Wanted some seafood and decided to try Sammy's. They were quite busy so my wife and I got some takeout. I got the fried flounder and she got the shrimp. Both very good. Nice portions and you get a side as well.

They have a great menu for both adults and kids. We just went there this past weekend, the food and service were both excellent. All the seafood dishes that we ordered were cooked to perfection. Now one of my favorite restaurants.

Fabulous lunch of creamy crab soup, loaded with crab meat! Shared appetizer of crab stuffed shrimp, cooked to perfection, tasted fresh local! Wings were also very good. Server Drew was excellent, knowledgeable, friendly and efficient! Definitely try the crab soup!

Sammy's is the only restaurant we will visit while on the Crystal Coast. We have tried many other ones but nothing compares with the food or service at Sammy's. The steaks are the best I have ever eaten. It is not unusual to see Sammy walk in with a large fish go to the kitchen and prepare it then give... More

Morehead City offers a large number of mediocre choices for seafood and Sammy's is about par for the range of dinning choices. Like most places on the NC coast only a small portion of the seafood offerings are sourced from local waters. Preparation is bland and unimaginative with an emphasis on fired. We sat outside and enjoyed a nice breeze... More
