We have been to Sam's a number of times over the years and each time you get great food and service to match. The menu choice caters for boths adults and kids and it is always freshly cooked. Seafood is great and with good portion sizes. Just be aware you can't book, so turn up, get your name on the... More

Had to wait for about an hour but we could sit upstairs in their cocktail bar, very chilled atmosphere. Lovely fresh food with great service.

Visited this establishment as part of a 2 family group and they catered very well for all 10 of us. Food was excellent, atmosphere was good and the venue itself was very hip. Looks like the owners are into their music scene as the restaurant has a lot of memorabilia. Back ground music was very good too. As we were... More

We visited as a family of 10 in August during a week's stay in Crinnis Beach. The food was very nice, service was great and the atmosphere was excellent. We were recommended this establishment by Siobhan who was familiar with it and I'm glad we took her advice. It's a must visit venue when in this end of the world..

I've visited Sam's several times, and there is one reason - they offer a dependable product, served reasonably promptly, and the atmosphere is great. For those that don't know, it's a restaurant on two floors which is always packed out , but which serves a good menu of fish, burgers and BBQ options. They don't accept bookings, so you'll have...

We ate at Sam's on 2 evenings in early August. It's a very popular place and, like many other people, we had to wait in the bar area for an hour or so for a table. I guess this is the price you pay if you want one of the better establishments around! The food was great all round but... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times over the years and it remains a firm favourite, clearly shared with locals and visitors as it is always busy. This visit was no exception as, despite it being a Tuesday evening, several groups of people were prepared to wait for around 45 minutes for a table when most of the opposition... More

This was the best seafood I've ever had. I ordered Seafood Feast, mussels, calamari, sardines, prawns, bread & salad. Will definitely go again.
