You can get your fish and shrimp fried or grilled and they don't know how to count, but in the favor of the customer. Plenty of food.

Great meal for the price. The plates are so full, I take my leftovers with me and have a second meal later.

I've had two bad experiences at this restaurant, but I believe in second chances although the first should have been enough. Here are my experiences: I went one day and went to wash my hands in the bathroom, but there was no soap! So I went to the counter and asked the girl working for some, but she said they... More

This place does not look like much but the food was GOOD! French fries were fantastic, the portions were large and overall not one of my large family had a complaint. That really says a lot!

We will definitely be stopping by again next time we take a trip... More

Every time I come to Nachitiches, I have to eat at Sam's! Love all of the seafood.... sides are okay. Nothing that I can't live without, but the seafood is wonderful! Better to carry out than dine in. :)

The food was AMAZING, so much on our plates, I think we all took food back to hotel rooms. The staff was very good about the large group we had. They tried to get our food out together and accommodate the other guest. The staff also would come out and make sure that we knew our food was coming out... More

We had excellent shrimp dinners at this out of the way restaurant on South st. Place is not fancy but was clean and food was good. Order at the counter and get you food in a to go box. Has clean seating and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Home town type of place.
