During our vacation, we ate here twice after trying to dine at a nearby restaurant with a 1.5 hour wait. No food is that good. Both times, our meals were excellent! Our party of five all had different entrees and tried something new on the second trip! No complaints. There was no wait on our first trip and we had... More

I had the rib eye and its absolutely the best rib eye I have ever had. Cooked perfectly at medium rare and I don't know what they seasoned it with but oh my!!! My husband had the pasta seafood extravaganza and it was amazing as well. You won't be disappointed with Sammy's.

Stopped in here for lunch. We had the buffalo shrimp appetizer which was great. Our entrees however could have been better. My husband got fish tacos and I got a burger. Burger was decent nothing out of the ordinary which I expected since I didn't want seafood that day. The fish tacos were not true fish tacos. They were grilled... More

🍤Go! If you are visiting Morehead City or close, go to Sammys!! The food is delish and I love the atmosphere. My family ordered different dishes and they were all great. My kids asked if we could eat supper there every night. Sammys has plenty of seating inside and outside and we walked straight in. Sammys is also open later... More

We decided to eat dinner here while visiting the area, mainly because there was no wait, unlike other seafood restaurants in the area. We got the stuffed shrimp as an app and it was delicious. I got the crab legs, which were pretty good as well. Prices were on the more expensive side, but consistent with the area.

We're terribly sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit to Sammy's! We do realize that it took your party longer than expected to receive their meals. Apparently the original booking was for approximately 25 guests. Upon arrival, the party had grown to 53 total guests. Sammy himself spoke with several people in your party and explained that...

Well, we again had the pleasure to dine at now our favorite restaurant. This time we took guests. They,as we, were very pleased with the meals we ordered. Unfortunately no oysters were to be had. Sammy told us that the quality of oysters available were not up to the standards of his clients. Most admirable of him to serve only... More
