“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Sammy's was a great spot to get awesome seafood on our weekend getaway to Morehead City. We sat at the back bar and had god service and great food. It was Saturday night and pretty busy but we were surprised to see Sammy himself there working and shucking oysters for people. My fiancé got the Tuna Burger and it was so good! A HUGE piece of tuna and a great price too! We will defiantly be going back.

“Special Lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

My 90 year old father-in-law and husband recently visited Morehead City and were looking for a place to dine for lunch. Sammy's was recommended, but unfortunately they were not open for lunch even though the hours on the door claimed they were. Disappointed, they were about to try another establishment.

However, unknown to my husband and father-in-law, Sammy, the owner was witness to their dilemma and personally opened the doors, invited them in for lunch, then cooked and served them. Needless to say, they were delighted and the food was excellent. That experience was a trip highlight for them. Thank you Sammy.

“Atlantic Beach Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Sammy's is fabulous. Casual, clean, personable with superb food and service. Sammy's is a first class seafood restaurant that also serves wonderful steak dishes for those who have had enough fish for the week at the beach. The fresh fish is absoultely fresh. We had a grilled tuna over pasta with marinara sauce which is a world class dis. We also had broiled triger fish which was cooked perfectly, still moist and tender. The fried oysters and shrimp had the perfect amount of breading so that it was light and tasting and not all breading as is common in the typical soothern seafood. We loved the food enough to eat there two nights out of 5.

“Best out of 3”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We decided to take a chance on this place purely on the wonderful smell outside of the restraurant! We had been to two other restaurants in the imediate area on different occasions and were not pleased! Sammy's made up for it! We felt welcomed even before we walked in the door. A nice lady came out side to greet us and held the door for us as we walked in. The atmosphere is wonderful! Our server was very nice. Now for the food. The reasons why I gave this a very good rating and not excellent are: The house salad could have used a few more ingredients in it for sure. I ordered the Stuffed Flounder. Our server said that the fish was fresh. While the crab stuffing was very tasty, the edges of the flounder were dry and lacked flavor. This lead me to believe that it was either not fresh or over cooked. However my husband had the Ribeye and said it was very good. The corn bread that is served prior to the meal is the best I have ever put in my mouth . It tastes like cake! The prices were fairly reasonable . If my Flounder and the salad had been better , we would have given this place an excellent rating. We will try it again for sure!

We visited for lunch. Great lunch menu with reasonable prices (to be directly on the morehead waterfront). Wonderful, friendly service! Welcoming atmosphere with great views of the waterfront and outdoor dinning! Great food! the shrinp wrap was delicous with fresh tasting shrimp and great fries! We would love to go back soon!
