The dishes and soup we ordered were extremely tasty, and our waitress was attentive. Too much wasted food accompanied these, and the server tended to ask us to pass along dishes and finished food instead of walking around our booth. The wasted stuff was lamentable.

You are not missing much by not coming to city island....it is overpriced, and for the masses who would rather pay a premium for sub-par food than take a drive to Portland Maine or down to Delaware/Maryland for some real good seafood.

I ordered the lobster which was absolutely tasteless for being a broiled lobster. Extremely expensive place for the quality of the meal. There is a long wait, and this place is very noisy. I would never return to eat here again.

We travelled all the way from Manhattan for dinner and was left very disappointed. The fried snapper was dry and unseasoned. Inedible!

We arrived early evening and were shown to a booth. One thing I noticed is when I take photos is if I don’t use the flash, everything is bathed in a sickly pink light. Our waiter was fantastic. We ordered starters - fried oysters, clam...More

Took mom and my brothers to sammy’s, they did not disappoint. The piña coladas are overpriced but the food makes up for it. Good service and valet parking.
